Hey guys, so I finally pulled the trigger and got the 65D8000!!!!!!!!!
I compared and read and compared and read some more and in the end, I learnt that it does not matter if its the Elite or vizio or sony or samsung for that matter, no matter how well they are rated, no matter full array with local dimming or a plasma.......the bottom line is what appeals to your eyes.
To me, the 65D8000 produced the best picture, I spent an hour looking at the Elite at my boss's house, was not impressed, atleast $7K impressed, so I guess to each their own.
My tv comes in tomorrow, I will be posting pics and experience, if any one cares to know, I am not waiting for the next best thing, because, the next best thing will have a next best thing coming soon after, so instead I got what made me happy and excited to have!
Dont kill me guys and thanks a million for your help!
