I'm following those models closely. As near as I can tell, the 7600 is a superior TV in PQ and yes, it's worth an additional $200.
However, be careful: the average rating of a product is not quite as meaningful a metric as you might think. Why?
Because with TV's, so very much ability is buried within the firmware, and the firmware changes over time.
For this reason alone, whenever you look at the reviews, SORT BY NEWEST and NOT by "most helpful". You'll sometimes see a dramatic change in the reviews, usually for the positive. However, sometimes for the negative as well, because TV manufacturers aren't immune to @#$%ing up a good thing. But it's the trend you want to get a-hold of.
You Frys guys piss me off. LOL. I don't have one nearby, so I cannot see if there are any of those in-store-only price drops available. I can't even use in-store pricing at Frys (or Crutchfield, HHGreg or nearly anyone) as a pricematch at Bestbuy because I'm not "close enough" to them to qualify for it. So pretty much it's either Amazon or nothing.
Amazon just slightly knocked the price down to $1409.97 (free shipping). Their return policy is typically stellar.
Well vinnie97, one of the kindest and most helpful and respected members here, was banned for silly reasons. And now vinnie_RIP is banned as well. The mark of an inexperienced moderator is to forget that their role is one of resource, not one of petulant authority and further that the members are doing the forum organization a favor by being here, not the other way around. They know darn well they screwed up here.
