The angled nailer has it's biggest advantage over straight in confined areas. Shooting baseboard in particular. The straight nailer is more awkward in that situation. In general, I find the angled gun to be more comfortable to use.
I've got the straight version and it works fine. Angled would be better if you are doing a lot of toe kicks under base cabinets or working in really tight areas. For 99% of trim work I find the straight works.
