I have a Triton TRA001 in the router table and really like it, but don't know much about the smaller one. But I am with Stick on the Bosch 1617 for hand held use. I have two of them so I can easily switch between tasks without resetting every time I switch. If the small Triton is as good as the larger one, you can't go too far wrong. But the large one is really uncomfortably top heavy for hand held use. Go and handle them both, see which feels right used freehand. There are a number of junky routers, but there are also a lot of good ones as well. Given that, make sure a good quality hand held router feels right in YOUR hands.
