Default Question: Big Jack vs. Router Lift: When to choose each?

For those of you who have worked with both when would you choose the bit jack over the router lift? I understand that a bit jack is for plunge routers and lifts are generally for fixed-base routers, but assume you have both available.

I'm guessing that the bit jack would be better for table-based mortising and pin routing when you are hollowing out the center of an item, but beyond that?

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!
