The X95G is also interesting..
If that has HDMI 2.1, it will be very interesting. Not too many folks want 8k at this point. You have to sit really close to enjoy it.

Too bad no HDMI 2.1 support.  Sales of the Z9F must have been very bad for them to launch a new offering so soon.

I think you just don’t get the point.

8K panels that you buy in the next year or so will be useless. You will pay a huge premium for those sets but I guarantee it will not be usable when real 8K media becomes mainstream.

When the real 8K format rolls along, there will be a new HDMI and HDCP format along with some new HDR/color space that won’t be supported in first gen 8K panels

We’ve seen this happen with 1080p panels (first gen didn’t have the right HDMI inputs that would support 1080p signals) and again with 4K panels (no HDMI 2.0/HDCP no HDR in first AND second generation 4K panels)

Pretty much what I said - why buy HDMI2.1 and 8k when there is no content out there - and history will show you there is going to be a new HDMI/HDCP standard that will make the 8K panel you buy today obsolete by the time the real 8K native material comes out.

I don’t think anyone is planning on buying 8k for the sake of it. In the case of z9g, the main interest is the backlight master drive + extended viewing angles + better motion handling + faster android tv. If it’s 8k, that’s just “by the way”, to me.

Exactly :) I think there was this fascination with 8K for no reason other than it is new and latest/greatest.

The new gen of the Z9 is interesting for a whole suite of different reasons.
