Just be aware that blur ray reference or upscaled 1080p games content will just look slightly sharper and better colored but if you actually have 4k source the difference should be night and day regardless screen size. Also HDR will look a lot better too.

With 40inch and 4k you almost need to sit on top of the tv to actually see the extra details. Please take note of your viewing distance from the tv and then see what size you need, for example https://www.inchcalculator.com/tv-size-viewing-distance-calculator/

I sit like a 2-3 feet away from my 4K 40 inch tv I bought the other day, and it looks amazing compared to the 1080p resolution I was running before

The jump to 4k still isn't worth it most of the time. 1080p at 60fps looks much better than 4k at 30.

Only advice I have for you is to go big or go home. rtings.com is a good place for television reviews, but try other places as well. Check out forums. Research alot because if a television appears to be too cheap their is probably a reason.

@djwagon, I get a syntax error on your link.
Anyway, it is a calculator for the average person to see a difference between HD and UHD. This has little to do with HDR, you will see that difference regardless of viewing distance.
Me and my wife were sitting too far away from the TV so UHD looked pretty much the same as HD, a waste of money for our new OLED. I moved the furniture around until we were 3 feet closer, you could see the difference ( and did not tell my wife the real reason I did this). The closer you are the more detail you will see. I have heard from others the ideal UHD viewing distance is to sit so close that the tv screen fills as much of your field of vision as possible but you do not have to move your eyes when viewing.
