Shaper Owners

I am thinking of getting rid of the router table for a shaper. With the router table there's always some warp in the mounting plate or the fence which messes up the profile. With a shaper it's one solid table surface with a higher quality fence. The negatives that I have heard are - the bits are expensive and some have expressed safety concerns that there is somehow a difference in the shaper heads spinning at high speeds versus the router table. Anyway, I would appreciate opinions, experience, and if you own a shaper what are the best brands. Thanks, Howard
