I also have some concerns about trying to do noise removal when editing images at 100% on a monitor with the very small pixels found in 4K monitors.

Couldn't you view the image at 200% while you do the noise reduction?...

How is an image pixel represented at 200%? If it's a square of 4 monitor pixels then the image is being viewed at 400%, not 200%.

My understanding is that percent refers to linear dimension, so 200% means height and width are each doubled, and each original image pixel now occupies the area of four monitor pixels.

In my meager experience with 4K monitors, at that view you can easily see image noise, the ugly blotches of color, etc. -- and how it smooths out upon application of noise reduction.

Before you buy, if you have a tablet or smartphone with similar pixel density, you can get a rough idea for yourself: put a noisy image in the tablet and magnify the view. (In the Display settings for the device, turn off the enhancement setting(s).)
