I’ll take your word for itThanks for the link! While I would not be so categorical as to say HDMI2.1 is a publicity stunt, I also don't worry about my XG95 not having HDMI2.1 (except for the eARC which is sometimes listed as part of the 2.1 specification).
Nevertheless, this is where technical progress is taking us - more bandwidth. For now, most of that bandwidth is useless (no 8K content, compressed audio, etc.), but consider this - many people here complain about the streaming apps buffering while watching something (your video stops with a rotating circle for a sort while). I had this a lot on my previous TV. Since then I upgraded two things - my TV, adding more processing power, and my internet connection, adding bandwidth. On paper, my bandwidth is useless - it's more that the outdated network card in the TV can deal with. On the other hand, now I'm utilizing this network card fully and have way less buffering (although sometimes is happens as well, just luckily not in the middle of a show but rather before it begins).
Same thing with the cables: buying the 2.1 certified cables resolved some other issues I was having even though on paper it should not matter.
So I would say, don't buy into the hype, but go for as much bandwidth as you can get without spending extra money
The movies in HDR looked nicer on my X950G vs X900H
That’s the biggest reason I didn’t get the X900H
I like gaming but it’s not a primary concern and I still don’t see much of a difference.
While I’m guessing a true gamer would?
