Just picked one up from Port Coquitlam location. There were like 6 units left on the shelf. By far the best deal if you want a smaller size 4k tv. Thanks OP

1. TV keeps going down and a new comes out every once a while. One more likely to want to replace the TV than have it repaired after a few years.
2. Costco requires you to be a member (and you have to pay for it) for the warranty period.
3. TVs from Samsung tend to work fine for the first few years anyway.
4. So, warranty for one year at best buy is good enough for me, 5 years at Costco for extra? No thanks!

Warranty is $29.99 for 5 years.

Standard warranty is 2 years with Costco Mastercard.

I want to say more but I believe I've made this case often enough.

Judgement call.

No link has been posted so far. How do you price match at best buy without the costco link?

Would 40" be too big to be used as a monitor?

Depends what your use case is and how much desk space you have. If your desk isn't deep enough where you end up having to sit fairly close then yeah it probably is too big.

Using it as a 4K monitor exclusively. Took me a few days to get adjusted, got it last week. The key is to find the right spot after a lot of trial and error.. either the text will be too small (far back) vs. too much in your face (close up) .. but great once you get it right.

Also keep in mind you need a pretty beefy PC or recent Mac that will do 4K@60Hz over HDMI

Folks set your font size to 150% or 175% in display settings.

Others have hinted, there's an art to finding the sweet spot in terms of distance and font size.

If I don't have a pretty beefy PC, but have a pretty beefy home theatre receiver instead, could I still get chrome 4:4:4 and 60hz using PC through the receiver?

Would the receiver make up for some of my PC's shortcomings or do I need to upgrade the PC's graphics card regardless?

Thanks. From what I found online there are very select cases where the volume buttons on your phone can control Apple TV/TV volume without the need for the physical ATV remote.

No way. If you liked 24" 1920x1080, then 48" 3840x2160 would have the same pixel density. So 40" is a bit of a shrink (higher density).

See my earlier comments. I lived with 39" 3840x2160 TV as descktop monitor for almost 4 years, switched to 32" recently, and am not as happy.

But each person's eyes are different and each person's usage is different.

PSA: I use glasses. Progressive lenses for normal use. I have and strongly recommend fixed-focus glasses for computer work. And the optimal focal length depends on your work posture (different from reading a book). Of course each person's vision is different.
