Samsung 40" - 1080p or 4k? Confusion

Hi all,

I went to my local currys store today and spotted this TV:

SAMSUNG UE40JU6400 Smart Ultra HD 4k 40" LED TV

I was ready to purchase it but when I spoke to one of the shop assistants, he advised me that if it's main use will be freeview HD, then, due to the upscaling from 1080p to 4k, I'd be better off with a 1080p set.

So this evening I ordered this:

Samsung UE40H6400 40" Full HD LED Smart 3D TV - Ebuyer

But my sister has since informed me that her Sony 4K tv that is used for 1080 still produces a very nice image.

I'm now unsure what to do. I'm unlikely to ever use the set for 4k as it's to go in my kitchen, but I always feel inclined when buying anything like this, to buy the latest tech to future proof it, but not if it will detriment the 1080p picture quality.

Any advise would be appreciated
