I can get the q8c for less from the Cleveland Ohio tv guy (chris).
Yep, Chris is the one to go with. What's right for you is really all about how you like a curved screen. If Chris can get you a deal, the Samsung UN78KS9800 is the best large curved screen LCD ever made. It's 78" with an very bright FALD VA panel but it shows online selling for $5,000 which is over your budget. It is better than both the edge-lit curved UN78KS9500 or QN65Q8C.
The Sony XBR65Z9D is the best flat panel LCD made, and definitely superior all around to the edge-lit UN78KS9500 or Q8C. But the curved Samsung UN78KS9800 is an FALD set like the Z9D and is also very bright. I'd say that qualitatively, the XBR65Z9D is better than the UN78KS9800, but the size difference for 65" to 78" is huge. It all comes down to curve vs. flat, 65" vs. 78", and price. Again, if you weren't a gamer who would be sitting close to the screen, I would never have recommended a curved TV. So then one of the Sonys would be an easy choice. And I only brought up the 78" sized Samsungs because your original choice list had the 75" Sony 900E and 940E.
Have you ever gone to a showroom and sat 6 to 8 feet from a curved TV? Most stores should have some 65" curved sets on display, either from LG or Samsung you could try out. This is an expensive purchase, and you should do all you can to make the right choice for you. It really doesn't matter what anybody else thinks.
I apologize if I've confused the issue here. I was just thinking outside of the box.
