I guess by now you have made your purchase of the table saw. This is for others that may read this thread.
In my readings, left tilt seems to be the very most popular saw.
I did not see where you specified which table saw you are getting, nor the amount of money in your budget.
As far as accuracy goes, it can depend on the table saw itself. Also, if one does not set up the saw accurately, then the most accurate saw is not very good or so it seems to me.
There are many articles in mag's that have reviewed table saws. It seems that the accuracy can vary between models of the same manufacture.
Safety, in my opinion, goes to the manufacture saw stop. It is equipped with a device that detects when flesh has been cut and (like in nano seconds) it shuts the machine down and stops the blade from turning. In doing so, it ruins the detecting device. The saw is on the expensive side for me and the replacement costs of the device are there, but what are your fingers worth dollar wise? The rest of the machines out there come in a poor second in this specific safety issue to me.
Otherwise, primarly it seems to me, safety is a personal issue. Watch what your doing and follow industry well established safety rules to put the percentages on your side.
In summary, you get what you pay for and reap the benefits of your behavior.
