If possible, I'd suggest going to a store that stocks a wide variety of routers, and actually handle some of the candidates on your list. Depending on how you intend to use the (first) router, ergonomics and weight may point you in one direction or another. All of the major brands produce good products. The differences are mostly in the "fine print" of design - little features that may be difficult to appreciate until you've had experience with them.
Note, too, that I said "first". Buying routers seems to be habit-forming. Most of us have ended up with several, since some are better suited to particular tasks than others.
Most hand-held operations can be done with a 1 3/4HP model, or smaller, depending on the type of work being done. Larger, heavier, more-powerful routers are often used in tables, although smaller routers can be table-mounted, as well. Again, the best choice depends on what you want to do with it.
As an example, I use PC 690-series routers for most hand-held work, but have a PC 7518 (in a lift) in my router table. But, I also have smaller units for more delicate work, such as inlay.
