HDTV Decisions...

I've been looking for a while at HDTVs, and have finally narrowed it down to these two models:
Westinghouse 47" 1080p HDTV
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16889234003&nm_mc=OTC-C173T&cm_mmc=OTC-C173T-_-LCD+TV-_-WESTINGHOUSE-_-89234003
and a LG 42" 1080p HDTV

I know the smaller one cost $100 more, but I've never really heard of Westinghouse before. Could you guys tell me what the better buy is? :)

My Problem With XBLA, WiiWare

     For many gamers, we need to keep a tight budget, and just buy a few games every so often. And with WiiWare, PSN, and XBLA, it's become a breeze to spend tons of money on cheap, innovative games that would probably never be released in any other format. I have no problems with that, I just can't understand how you go about buying them.  For PSN games, you can either buy a set amount of points, or purchase each game seperately, but with WiiWare and XBLA, you can only buy the set amount of points, which is pretty screwed up any way you look at it. If Microsoft and Nintendo incorporated a seperate option to buy individual games, I'd be fine with them, but no, they make gamers pay extra, and most of the time you can't even buy anything with the leftover points. Why is this system in place at all? Do they even need to have a fixed point system like this? I'm not liking that I have to pay $12.50 for 'Splosion Man, when I already have 200 points, and could just pay $7.50 for the remaining 600 points, and be on my way. Sure, it doesn't seem like a lot extra to spend at first, but it definitely adds up.
