Not many, but a few: http://www.displayspecifications.com/en/comparison/bfb42040

Main differences is JL provides a 5 year guarantee (Vs 1 year at Currys), 610 apparently doesn't have Freesat, and is also missing various 'feature' enhancements (likely mix of hardware and/or software which tries and improve motion performance etc.).
Faux K not 4k on these LG TVs

I'd always opt for one with a proper lg stand not the feet. I doubt these are manufactured by lg.
any good reviews on this?

Yes, it gets a good review on Which? Seen it in Currys and the picture is good.

Yes it's a decent TV. I got one from Currys a few weeks back (when it was £369). I had to go in store to see the quality before buying though. I think it all comes down to individuals. I've had it set to default and quite pleased with the picture qualities.
I was after just a decent HD TV, which was difficult to find for a decent set under £400. So ended up opting for this and I've not regretted it

​can you explain that please? what isn't 4k about this panel? no thought not. faux knowledge more like.

Referring to this I think:

In the scheme of things it's probably not a big deal, but will be to some people more than others.
How are there some 4K TVs sub-£400 and others are over £1000?

All depends on the quality of the panel and extra features.

4K simply refers to the resolution of the picture. The price really then dictates the quality of the actual picture, for example, you have the panel depth (8 bit, 8+2, and true 10 bit panels) which are about how many colours it can show, 'HDR' but in various forms - HDR10 or Dolby Vision - and also whether they can actually hit the 1000 nits a HDR set is meant to (most can't), how long a panel can keep at 1000 nits brightness (the Samsung KS7000 can apparently only last 17 seconds due to power limitations) and you could go on... Moving away from your typical LED LCD panel, you also have OLED sets - generally expect to pay £1600+ for one of those.

Most LCD LED panels use Red, Green and Blue sub-pixels, referred to as RGB. Lots of cheaper LG sets, like this one, use RGBW (Red, Green, Blue, White) which some also wouldn't call true 4K, as there aren't actually the number of RGB sub-pixels you'd expect on a '4k' screen. Whether you can actually tell the difference is a whole other story!
is it worth the 610v version then just for the extra warranty
Anyone confirm if this has actually got a full freesat guide and menu or just a satellite tuner and input.
Personally the JL on for £20 more is better but IMO due to warranty
Hmm this or the 40" Samsung 4K curved deal from AOL?
My sitting distance to the Tv is 2.7m, I'm not sure which size of the TV is best 43inch or 49inch of the same model?

Also other question in my mind is the difference between this model and the LG 43UH668V model which is now £449. Obviously it is the new model and thinner bezels and includes magic remote but how about the display and panel technology. Are those the same?
Can anyone confirm what happens when the screen processes bright whites against a dark/black background. Is the picture and motion clean? I have a 49" Panasonic where I get a sort of halo where the screen fails to process the drastic change. my other tv, an older but better quality pioneer doesn't have this problem, handling the white to black changes much better. At this price this LG is very tempting but the 'halo-ing' would get on my nerves. Hope you guys can help.
Bought this tv earlier in the week and got no complaints. I found most of the default picture modes to be either washed out or too bright, and the Which recommended settings left motion blur, but got it set on Game mode and it looks great for everything. Sound is decent too - expected to need a sound bar but not gonna bother.
Just wondering is it worth the extra £30 for the slightly different model here argos.co.uk/pro…178

Extra 30, but probably worth it. Wireless sound sync if you get a soundbar, and better colour range.

Use voucher code CE10 to get an extra tenner off
Took the plunge and bought it today. First impression, great bright clear picture. Need to watch some football to check for any motion blurring, but to be fair at this price this is defo a hot deal. Thx OP.
