The decision comes down to what you are using it for. A shaper does an ok job of running router bits. The speed of the bit is too slow on the router, a slower feed rate and extra sanding can compensate for that. A router in a table saw is great to save space, but when you forget to make a cut or need to adjust a previously made one, that bit you left sticking up above the table can prevent your fence from traveling far enough. If space permits have both, if it does not find a friend that the the one you do not.
