it probably is too early to tell on the ridgid router, but don't fault it becuse people aren't sellng it on ebay yet or haven't had a chance to rate it online somewhere. it's their (ridgid's) first router, and it's only been available a few months. I've seen only one online review and it was more of a summary of features and not an in depth review. I'm sure those will be coming along shortly.
I will say that with the clear base, light, and included vacuum attachments ($30+ for my PC) it presents quite a deal, at least on paper. It came out 1 month after I bought my PC 690vs package- otherwise I would have looked hard at it for the same money. I've had to make my own clear subbase and I'm still trying to figure out dust control...
sure the lifetime warranty is only as good as the company behind it, but with an increasing number of tools in increasing areas (construction, pneumatics, woodworking) I'll bet they'll be around at least longer than the standard 1 year warranty on anything else.
I don't work for ridgid, I've just been very happy with their tools.
