Looks good.

Nice differences, especially the insides of cupboard on the right, e.g. are very different. Does the amount of GI have any influence on PT renders, btw? And by sun's multiplier, you mean the sun's strength, I guess?

Yes, the strength. In the original render the sun had a strength of 4.5, and in the final PT version it's 7 (not really doubled actually, but a lot more).
I guess GI is the major factor here.
Which cupboard do you mean?

Rendered a complete 1920px image yesterday in PT. Here's a comparison of part of it. Water is at default (0.01), so I guess that could be a tad 'sharper". I'll have to wait until the transparency works, though.

To test the path tracer I dug out one of my favoured interior files.

I found that I couldn't just enable the path tracer and everything is cool. The lighting was way too dark, so I almost doubled the sun's multiplier. All the reflective surfaces had to be reworked, and since PT doesn't support the glass shader yet, the cigarette smoke plane had to go, and all glass materials were replaced by solid ones.
Unfortunately the whiskey bottle now looks like a bottle of BBQ sauce, so Jack Daniels has to wait until PT accepts glass shaders.

Anyway, the GI and the shadows are much more accurate!!! I love it!

Btw: no postwork. Pure TG output.

My work space is actually not very big (3x5m), so I think a 32 will do for me. You'd have to sit further away too, I guess, if the screen is so large. Right now I sit at 80cm (32") from my 24" screen.
I also found , while reading the reviews about the switch, that I can't maintain my Aten switch; that also has to be able to deal with 4K, apparently.

It depends on your work space and is subjective but i would go closer to 40 inch for a 4k monitor (I use a 32 inch HD monitor).

Thanks Oshyan, I would indeed be interested to see your spreadsheet. For that kind of money it's good to make a wise decision. The LG is not as expensive as the Eizo I'm looking at. But it has its drawbacks too. I just read a Dutch review:
The LG 31MU97Z-B is a 31 inch monitor with 4096x2160 resolution. The monitor uses an IPS panel, which usually means good color rendering and viewing angles. LG promises a maximum brightness of 320 cd / mē, a contrast of 1000: 1 and a response time of 5 ms. The screen offers DisplayPort and HDMI as digital connections. The screen is suitable for modern Apple computers and other PCs with Thunderbolt connection. Thanks to the integrated USB hub you can connect peripherals such as mouse and keyboard via the monitor. Because the screen is height-adjustable, the LG 31MU97Z-B is suitable for ergonomic workstations. If desired you can use the monitor rotated in so-called portrait mode. According to our test results, the maximum brightness is 300.9 cd / mē, making the screen bright enough for very bright rooms. At maximum brightness the black level is 0.35 cd / mē, which results in an excellent contrast of 859.7: 1. The standard color temperature of the screen is 5491 Kelvin, which ensures a slight yellow cast. The average color deviation of 3.76 on the basis of the DeltaE 2000 standard means that the colors show a small, barely visible deviation. This makes it suitable for simple photo editing. Energy use at a brightness of 150 cd / mē is 57.2 W.
I notice it uses quite a lot of energy in comparison to the Eizo (30W).

If you're buying a new monitor, pay some attention to color accuracy and color model representation. 100% sRGB/rec.709 at a minimum. The 31MU97Z-B Doug pointed out looks promising. I am currently looking at 31-32" 4k monitors myself. I have a spreadsheet going if you'd like me to share it with you. :D
