The 7 months that I have owned my 60", it has gotten better with age.
The "white shadowing" (not sure if its the correct term) has improved, to a point where its not noticeable.

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.

Couple considerations:
-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?

^ Whatever you do, I would definitely checkout the newest Vizio M Series (2014, not 2013). Since they are now FALD, they could be the best bang for your buck.

I'd have to see them in person though and then compare price. If 3D is of any bit importance to you though, IIRC, the new M series is not 3D capable.

I'm very happy with my Sammy 7100 55". I only game with the Wii U on it (no FPS games), so my input on that area isn't really helpful. I do feel the silver bezel\frame helps make the blacks look a little darker. Again, I would have to compare in person to see if the FALD on the M series is significantly better. My gut opinion - the M series will have better blacks and more consistency, but the 7100 will have more to offer in the vivid wow factor (not necessarily always good thing though).

I also have this exact problem. It just started happening out of nowhere. I'm also running an Ethernet cord directly to the TV; I may try on wifi just to see what happens.

My guess is that the latest firmware breaks all the streaming apps. Anyone know how to downgrade?

I've owned a 65" f7100 for about 6 months now. It is hanging in my media room and has little mileage on it. I am having an issue streaming with the Apps (Amazon VOD and Netflix are the only ones I use). After about 30 minutes of streaming, the both apps lag badly. It takes about 30 sec to 1 minute for the app to respond to the remote (video still playing fine). After about an hour, the video/audio starts freezing and gets progressively worse. At this point, the TV/app is unresponsive. I can see the red LED flash in response to the remote, but the app does not respond. I cannot even turn the TV off. If I select the smart hub button on the remote, the screen goes black and after 1 minute, and it may go back to the menu (if I'm lucky). As soon as I can cycle the TV off, back on, and reopen the App, the problem is fixed. I have to go through this nonsense every hour or so when I stream a movie. It is not a buffering issue.

To answer a few basic questions:

This issue just started a couple of weeks ago. I could stream perfectly fine without issue since I bought the TV.
I updated to the latest firmware (didn't help).
I updated Netflix and Amazon VOD to the latest software (didn't help).
I can stream from computers, phones, and game systems just fine throughout the house.
I am running an Ethernet cord directly to the TV.
Playing movies through an external player works perfectly fine (TV is responsive to remote throughout viewing).

Before spending 5 hours on the phone with Samsung and getting the run-around, I'm hoping someone on this board has some advice. I would greatly appreciate it.

For me most apps work fine but there's lag in some. Overall the smarthub has gotten laggy for me so I picked up a roku 3 . I would've preferred better performance out of the hub since I do like the interface.
