Default Hi All )))

Hi, All! I am Eugene from Crimea (Ukraine). I am planning to purchase a my first router. I never worked with a router before. A target - just for home and self-education. I think, I will use it for making a some furniture for my flat (kitchen cabinets, shelf for TV, etc). I have ~150-200 USD. I looked on many various models in stores in my city, and finally I am choosing from two routers. They are: 1) Worx WU600 (China) - Here I like small price, soft-start, small weight, case, robust design and good kit. But I know nothing about this brand and think it maybe is not reliable. 2) B&D XTW1500EKA. Here I like also a case, good kit. But it is a weighty. And it is doesn't have a soft-start. Also I couldn't see where it was made. I looked for tag on the body and also looked for a tag on the case. I didn't find any info on "made in ...". What you can say about these routers and which of them will be better for my needs?
