I'm a fan of the Bosch 1617. I wound up with two motors after getting a Triton TRA001 for my table. But ran the Bosch in the table for several years. The fixed base on the Bosch can also be attached to the underside of a table and with the optional key, can let you adjust the bit height from above the table, something my aging knees appreciate. Plenty of power, and the round knob on the fixed base is easier for me to handle than the pistol grip. The pistol grip on the plunge base offers good control. I know others like other routers, but for fit and finish and an amazing array of high quality accessories, I don't think the Bosch can be beat--and the price is good too.
