Which seat in F ?

Will fly VX soon in F.
First time in F and wonder which seat VX flyers prefer and why.
Do seats in row 1 have storage for carry on lap top bags, etc.
I.E.: on AS, bulkhead F rows have no storage at seat and very little overhead bin space.

No stowage, but plenty of overhead space. FAs are good at guarding the F bins, and in the space that VX has 2 rows of F seats, AS has 4.

I like the second row as it seems a little more private. I prefer the widow as well so - A2 and AF are my personal choices.

Overhead is easier on D side is easier due to equipment above 1A-C.

I prefer row 2 but personal choice rather than any difference between 1 and 2.

I prefer Row 1, because nobody is leaning back. But it's overall all great in VX F.

I prefer 2A mainly because the window at 1A is usually pretty scuffed up due to the jetway rubbing against it.

I like 1D, as it usually means I'm first off the plane and even when the FA is seated, I can engage them if needed without the call button.

Compared to 99% of the other domestic flying options, F anywhere on VX is great.

How does it work with the see through plastic thing up front on a red-eye, Has to be bright and annoying right? I've chosen 2A for my upcoming flights.

I always take 2D. A little more room in the seatback pocket than in the bulkhead magazine-rack thing, and a bit more privacy in 2. But definitely window over aisle if both seats are occupied, as it's a bit of an operation getting out to the restroom from the window if everyone's reclined (more so in row 2 than row 1 obviously).
