I've got 2 of the 890 series, and like them both. Mine are both around 3 years old now and I've had no trouble with them. One is an 894pk set with the fixed base and the plunge base, the other is a plunge base only. They've made a few modifications to the plunge base, but I have no first hand experience with that.
The fixed base (like the 892) is great for a table. The height adjustment is pretty easy, you're not fighting springs or anything. I really don't use the above the table height adjustment that often, mainly because I like to get down close to the bit and check the height of the bit by eye anyway, so most of my adjustments are done inside the table.
In all, I've been happy with the routers, and have no problem recommending them.
