However, I am leaning away from purchasing the C8 and more towards the C9 as I do not want to upgrade again for another 4-5 years.
Does anyone know for sure that the C9 be a 8k panel? When can the conusmer reasonably expect to see any 8K content ?
As others have mentioned the C9 will be a 4K panel not 8K. As for 8K content, your guess is as good as anyone's, there isn't any and won't be any time soon. Everything will be upscaled until real 8K comes.
