I need to buy 4 LED Flat Panel TV's to complete my A/V system, what would you recommend and why??

Here are my elements:

1. I will have a theater room for 75% of the HDTV watching
2. No kids, just wife and me
3. Location-Kitchen, Master Bedroom, Office, Sun Room
4. about 50" LED wall mounted, rooms have a lot of light
5. All used with a Crestron, AVR, DVD/BD, DirecTV Genie, Apple TV rack
6. most likely external wall speakers
7. 3D not an issue
8. Basically a very good monitor, did I miss something?? smile.gifsmile.gif

Is your theater room the same as sun room? You want all 50" ? I would recommend getting 3 LCD' s and 1 plasma for the theatre room if its not the sunroom and bigger than 50" if you can afford, just because plasma will give you better picture quality but if your theater room is the sunroom than go LCD. I think going 50" in a kitchen and bedroom is overkill unless you live in a mansion with a huge open space. You can't go wrong with Sharp Aquos quatron/Samsung/Sony XBR. Plasma -Panasonic / Samsung.

Nothing unless there are features they would ask for; 3D, smart TV, etc... I do not know that's why I'm asking.

Thank you for your feedback!!!
No, sun room is back porch closed in due to long winters. Theater room off kitchen, next to garage. Yes, we are old and our eye are bad!! Theater room will have projector/screen. I have a 50" plasma Panasonic now, it's going to the basement and the playroom. Bedroom is over the fireplace, no I not building a mansion. I'm looking for a good price point, based on TV not the bangs and whistles that come as selling points.

Is there any advantage buying a LED TV with RVU protocol vice getting the C31 Genie Mini?? Higher cost of a upgraded software package vice a less costly based on less add-ons??
