Cisco Wireless LWAP vs. WAP

If I were to deploy multiple access points in a warehouse what would the advantage to be to use Cisco lightweight access points versus the Cisco regular wireless access points?  I am planning on using a Cisco controller for configuration.  I guess I am worried about losing an access point and having the reliance of other access points for connectivity.  Would the best case senario be to wire each location and have a regular WAP instead of wiring a few locations and having LWAP's depending on a sole access point for bridging?

Im not really sure what you mean by sole access point/wireing more than 1 location. But..

I would go LWAP using the controller. This way the controller can manage all your channel allocations, AP broadcast power and even load balance clients.  The controller will also monitor the AP's in case of a failure, the controller can dynamically increase power of nearby access points to fill the voided area.
Any more on this?
