I apologize for not having time to surf the thousands of posts in this thread, but the 55" F7100 is on-sale today for $1099.99 and I'm on the fence about purchasing. Lately for 55" options I have been considering the Sony 55W800B, the Vizio M (2014), and the Samsung H6350. It seems like this would be a step-up of the H6350 (despite this being a 2013 model), but the CNET review had me a little weary of the F7100.
-TV will be used for 40% Gaming, 40% TV, and 20% Movies
-Seating distance is ~8-9 ft directly from TV. We have an L-shaped sectional, so potentially some seating upwards of 30° from set when many people are over.
What is the general consensus on this TV with regards to uniformity (with respect to other brands, as no edge-lit LED is perfect) and picture options for gaming without huge input lag deficiencies?
