yeah. and that makes sense of course.

I just didn't realize how big the 4k game files would be on the X. and then I remembered my relatively so-so internet speed and data cap.

so as much as I'd like to get the X, it may not be that practical for my present internet situation.

plus, I remember how long it took to download stuff on the regular X1/X1S, so I can only imagine how much longer it would take to download the 4K stuff on the X.

now, maybe the X's increased power will allow for faster download times. but I'd still be constrained by my internet speed and data cap.

so it seems like to fully enjoy the X1X, you'll need not only a 4K tv, but also fast internet speeds, high/unlimited data caps, and a good sized external drive for storage.

Straight Edge and Proud!!
