I'm a fan of Bosch 1617 2.25 HP which comes in a kit with fixed and plunge bases. You can use the fixed base under the table, although I prefer a lift. I bought Rockler's router table, top and FX lift (on sale) as a package and really like the combination. The fence on it is aluminum with MDF/melamine surface. On other boards you'll find the two adapters needed to use guides. This combo has never had a problem with power. The Bosch used to have a power switch problem, but that seems to have been fixed since the complaints are on older machines. I got the kit at Lowes. I like it better than the PC personally, although you'll find plenty of PC fans. I just don't like the helical height adjustment. The Bosch fixed base has a very find knob adjustment that is very precise.
