    As per earlier post, yeah .... -ish.

    JL = about 15 mins, by car.
    Costco = 10 mins, by foot.

    Which, other factors being equal, is why I'd use one or the other, for preference..

    Completely anecdotal - from comments i've seen across multiple forums as well, LG seem to step up if there are any issues with some folk even getting complete model upgrades years in to their warranty. YMMV of course.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    I now have a 55" LG C1, courtesy of Costco. At the princely sum of £1080, it was £120 cheaper than either JL or Richer, too. Once I get it out of the box, I'll comment on what I think, but gotta do some room tidying first.

    Thanks for all the help, everyone.

    Good choice, especially with the 5yr warranty. Just remember that it may be set store settings for brightness contrast & colour so they may need changing to less retina searing settings, otherwise you may be initially disappointed. There's usually an ISF calibrated setting that you can choose in the options that'll get you 90% of the way there though.
