Okay if you wanted to stream 4K media to your smart TV would you be using hardwired or Wi-Fi
Hardwired every time (even for lower res. streaming). Fewer things to set up or go wrong, no future problems when a neighbour or your microwave oven etc. etc. starts using frequencies close to yours.
Always more bandwidth as any form of WiFi has to send additional error checking/protocol bits for it to work.
Most consumer 4K services are going to be streaming H.265 media services like Netflix, if you have a good wireless link then you should get by but a wired link is much better.
The only 4K stuff for local streaming from PC/NAS are demo videos or trailers and such.
