Is there a quality difference in the panels themselves below 7600?
Tough to answer for a couple of reasons. I have seen a 6200 but did not really pay much attention to it. In the store it seemed to me the 7600 had better contrast than the 6700, I did not know there was a panel difference at that time so there was no bias when looking at them. Just seemed contrast and perhaps because of that colors were better on the 7600.
That said, after getting my 7600 calibrated using the Cnet settings and blu-ray calibration disc, the picture of the 7600 came alive, I don't know what the 6700 would look like next to it also with correct settings. Since I like the trumotion effect for all but movies, and at that time the 6700 has no conrols for that, and with the better contrast to my eyes, getting the 7600 was the choice.
What really got me to buy it was seeing it next to the Samsungs. I tried as much as I could to get them somewhat looking good in the store, including using their cinema settings, and in every case the LG just had a better picture. I went thnking I would buy a Samsung which did have the best blacks. Unless I went quite some out of the price range, few if any sets looked as good as the LG, though have to hand it to Vizio, they had one that looked quite good to my eyes, but blacks were not as good as the LG. I do feel spending more for an LCD while certainly not a guarantee of a better picture, perhaps just more toys added, does seem to get you a better picture sometimes
