I guess you need to ask what the screen size is. It is said that the smaller
sizes of tv, cannot really be of much use on true hd content. On the other
hand some of the compression used looks awful I am told and on the other
hand some of the clever up scaling of sd can look very good.
With regard to DIY, why is it that the devices sold to mount them on a
wall seem to me at least to be rather flimsy?

I've got a 4k TV in front of me now. It makes a great monitor - at arm's
Across the room I doubt I could tell 4k from 1080.
HDR (more colours) is a different matter. As is enough bits on the
transmission to take out the compression artefacts.
Yes, I have a 43" 4k TV as a monitor, it's excellent, pin-sharp, great
for CAD or just having lots of things open. Well worth the money.
(I understand it would work as a telly too, but I've never tried.)
I have one here which is a 22" widescreen HD. I can easily see it's not 1080 lines, and not even 720 is very sharp. A slightly smaller computer monitor (19") has 1200 lines and it needs them. Less than that is awful.
And the wall mount is indeed a piece of shit. Mind you, I'm using it vertically rather than horizontally, so it needs to take the weight of the TV on the joints, so it keeps drooping.
