Default Bosch vs. Porter-Cable


My name is Jay and I am a novice in the routing world. While I'm a beginner at using a router, I'm fairly handy with other tools and anticipate that with some help from this forum I will be able to learn the basics. I am considering purchasing either a Bosch 1617EVS or a Porter-Cable PC-895PK any opinions on these two choices would be greatly appreciated.
