A couple of years ago I bought a 65" Samsung Series 8 SUHD TV. I bought it to watch movies. I do not watch broadcast TV anymore. I have yet to use it to view any of my photos, although I do use it to watch my edited 4K videos. I also have an android media box that supports 4K60P (Minix U9-H).

My photo viewing is done in large part on my desktop computer, which has a 28" 4K monitor. I find 28" is too small for 4K resolution

Hmmm. Interesting. I was on the fence 6 months ago between a 27" and a 32" 4K monitor. As it turned out, the 27" appeared sharper. I guess I could have just set farther away from my monitor, but I actually grab my 27" monitor on a fully articulating stand and pull it up pretty close for photo work.

Anyway, IMP experience, my 27" is not at all too small to take full advantage of 4K pixels.

Also I should mention, the 27" and the 32" I was comparing, were both LG's.... Even the same series, just different sizes.

, so I have plans to upgrade my monitor next year to about 40". Did I mention I also do a lot of gaming.

The rest of my photo viewing is done on my smartphone.

By the way, the Hollywood movies look fabulous on the SUHD TV.
