This is just above your price range, but worth looking at.
Based on rtings.com review, not sure it's worth another $1k.

Rtings reviewed a smaller size with an IPS panel. The 85" has a bright VA panel with deep blacks, so a very different PQ.

Hi everyone, just wanted to report back that I ended up getting the 82" Q6FN from Costco. I have to say the picture quality on this set is AMAZING. If my LG 65" OLED B6 is a 10, this thing is a solid 9.3. The blacks are almost as good, plus it has tons of "punch"

Another bonus that I wasn't expecting is this TV has the chip necessary to properly display HDR videos on YouTube. My Nvidia Shields can't even do this.

Thanks for all of the insight, everyone! I ended up pulling the trigger on a Sony X940E, it should be delivered within the next couple hours! Amazon had it for about $2800, plus 5% cash back with my Amazon card. I went with that over the 900F because overall it's specs were better, with the exception of motion handling, and it was $200 cheaper. I do like to do some gaming and occasional sports, but there appears to be some mitigation. Movie experience was my main priority and this set appears to outclass the others from what I've seen, which is primarily why I decide to go with the "smaller" 75". I currently have a 73" Mitsubishi DLP, so this is going to be a huge improvement no matter what. I am/was pretty curious about the 86" LG 7570, but there just wasn't enough information out there on it yet for me to take a chance, plus I'm a little worried about being able to shoehorn it into the space I have available (and it fitting on my current pedestal with legs spread out that far).

Dang it, this one wasn't on my radar until now. Now I have ANOTHER model to add to my agonizing analysis list, lol.

82" NU8000 (cheapest with EPP)
75" X900F
75" X940E

I haven't had a lot of time to put my new X940E through its paces yet, but so far I'm pleased overall. My biggest complaint is that the user interface is often slow, but I think it's probably the same on the X900F, so not a differentiator. I haven't had much time to game, but did a little and didn't notice any motion issues. So unless gaming is your dominating priority, I think the 940E is probably the way to go, especially at $200 less.

Employee Purchase Program = EPP. Your employer would need to participate with Samsung for you to qualify for the EPP discount price. The Federal Government also participates in a similar program for it's employees called the Samsung Government Discount Program.
