For non-gaming, if you have now or aspire to a surround sound system fed with uncompressed sound, then the C9's eARC enabled by the HDMI 2.1 ports could be a deciding factor.
eARC enables uncompressed bitstream output by the C9 to connected audio equipment.
That translates to lossless Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio to your receiver instead of the lossy, compressed versions of each, Dolby Digital Plus (DD+) and DTS-HD respectively.
In photography terms, it's the difference between a RAW file and a JPG file.
Note that streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon use the lossy, compressed versions of these audio formats, so if you are not watching Blu-Ray discs you will continue to get the lossy audio formats, regardless of C8 (ARC) or C9 (eARC).
eARC also promises TV remote control of interconnected, multi-brand equipment that actually works reliably.
Note that each member of the pair must support eARC to leverage these capabilities, e.g. TV and receiver.
