the one on offer in argos was the 651v

Main difference is that the 651 has ultra luminance (?) and is edge lit where the 635 is direct lit

651 had 4 HDMI where 635 has 3

Thats the only differences so a good price.

At least is has a central stand as opposed to those ridiculous wide feet found on so many of the larger screens these days.

You can’t pivot the tv in a corner with the wide feet. So unless you remodel your entire living room so that your couch is head on with the tv they’re difficult to work with.

Most Irish houses seem to build the living rooms to have the tv in the corner.

Was actually gonna go look at this exact tv in Harvey Normans tomorrow. My old tv died the other day. What's people's opinions on this one. Worth the money? My old tv was a Cello from bout 10 years ago from tescos so as u can imagine any tv would be an improvement on it! Had wanted the lg one from argos before xmas but couldn't get one before the price went back up. Would the average joe notice the difference between this model and the one from argos mentioned earlier?

No, they are very similar sets.
It'll be a bit of a step up from the Cello though!

Thank you CG Combined with the fact that many people 'upgrading' would have the regular double tier glass stand that has been so popular over the years and would be more than capable of holding the new TV, but alas, the legs are too far apart for many, and further spend is required.

Richer Sounds have the 55UJ630V for €599 + delivery also and it comes with a 6 year warranty:

The only difference I can see below is that the 635V has Ultra Luminance but not sure how important that is:

No ultra luminance listed on the lg site for the 635V

Seems a no brainer to buy the one with the 6 year warranty then.
