Eric, If I didnt game, I would stick with the st60. The black levels and color saturation are just unreal. And I have absolutely no image retention. My F7100 had pretty good contrast, and the picture looked pretty good. Couple things though. The st60 was a 60 inch for 1499, and my f7100 was a 55 inch, so right there was probably unfair to the 7100, cause you put it up, and notice how much smaller it looks. A fairer comparison would have been a 60 inch f7100, but the price is $500 more, and I would get a sharp panel
. The second thing was as I mentioned, my motion was skipping and studdering. Pirate mentioned above that Auto 2 was the setting I should have been using instead of Auto 1. Whats even crazier is that I took my st60 back on sunday at noon, and i tried the sammy sunday night, and freaked out, so I went to best buy first thing mon morning, and they still had my st60, but then they sold it to me at open box price of 1280. I told them I would rather pay full price, but they said they couldnt, so I bought a 2 year warranty instead. But here i am 2 days later, I thought I would be perfectly content gaming on my 32 inch lg in my office, (which, anyone looking for an amazing gaming tv, its new, its a lg ln5300. has crazy low input lag, and no blurring), but then I watch the Xbox one presentation yesterday, which is designed to sit in your living room, and tie everything together, and now I'm thinking, the st60 is going to be a problem, cause the input lag is too high to game on. In the end, I'm torn, because the st60 is a much better value for the money. But its not a good gaming tv. And with having 2 sons that also like to game, I think it may have to go back , again. I just worry that best buy might refuse my return.
