19" porcelain - Bridge or Table Saw?

What type of saw is better/easier for large porcelain floor tile? :

bridge/rail or standard wet saw?

I'm having trouble finding a rental place with standard wet saws which will rip a 19-20" tile and no one has any to do a diagonal on that size.

I'm doing a small bathroom floor and will do a 250sqft kitchen with simlar tile size later in the year. That being said I can't justify big bucks on an uber saw but I'm afraid I'll be left with a lack of capabililty purchasing a smaller affordable saw.

If a bridge works well enough, I can rent (or even buy) for a resonable price.

Any recomendations or experience to share are appreciated.

For tiles that size, I bust out my Imer combi250. Its big and bulky, but when you need to cut large tiles, its great. If you can find one of these to rent, I'd go for it.
