Which one of the xh95 models is identical to the xg95 counterpart?@1234VICE for me is not about bringing FW to older models, its about selling the exact same TV as a new model!!
And its not about FW features the XH have over the XG! People talk about improved picture quality!!
I didnt read all the posts but if you are curious maybe you can read more here : 2019 Sony XBR X950G Owners Thread (No Price Talk) - Page 188 - AVS Forum | Home Theater Discussions And Reviews
With 'SW' I dont mean exclusively SW features. If the SW of the xh95 somehow enhances PQ over the xg95, I still consider that SW. It is unclear to me in what way the PQ has been improved though.
Rebranding is indeed anti-consumer, and this is not restricted to the tv business. The xh95 offers marginal upgrades over the xg95, so it's close to rebranding. Every year, the previous generation tv sets offer better value. In this way, companies capitalize on ignorant consumer's that simply want to have the latest model. IMO, its a bit of a gray area. The msrp of the xh95 is lower than the xg95 anyway.
Maybe I will have a look at that thread. Thanks for sharing this discussion!
