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.

Angled brader is mean it's what I use, but I think the straight brader can do two guages of pins so more versatile I guess

I use the angled Senco.Have three and have been happy with all.I used a Paslode Friday and did not like it as well.It did not set the nails as well and was felt akward.

I prefer the angled nailers. All of my brad nailers are straight though. As said before, angled nailers get into tight spots easier.

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.
