You will like the power of the PC in the table. I have both, the PC in a jessem lift and the Bosch 1617 in a Rockler lift.
On the PC it was a 3 speed router and the lift hampered changing speeds,so I set the motor on high speed and then installed a speed control on the front of the table to reduce the speed, and seems to work fine.
When I had the Bosch 1617 mounted in the table with its' fixed base, it worked fine as far as raising and lowering from the top with a hex key "T" wrench, but still had to reach under the table to lock and unlock the base which was a chore. That is one reason I put a router base on instead. I mounted a speed control on the front for the Bosch too. Seems like I dial in speeds for every bit I use, I can tell by the sound the right speed for each bit.
I converted both to Muscle Chucks as they are easier to change bits. other wise both routers take an offset wrench and a straight wrench, and sometimes a 3rd hand to hold the bit while tightening.
