Default Woodpecker PRL-V2 vs Quick-Lift

Hi All,
I am about to build a router table extension for my table saw. I was thinking of picking up one of the Woodpecker lift systems while they are on sale.
Their new PRL-V2 lift system is on sale for $299 but their Quick-Lift is only $159.

Is there any significant benefit of the PRL-V2 over the Quick-Lift?
If anyone has the Quick-Lift I would like to hear about it's performance.
I have had a lot of problems with my PC 890 adjusting smoothly as it tends to bind up and cock to the side as I try to adjust the height and this of course screws up my cuts.
If the difference is tremendous I can justify spending the extra money but if it is only a moderate gain I would rather save the money to put towards a 2nd router and plunge base.

I recently purchased the PRL-V2.
I liked the tool free fine adjustment of the PRL-V2. Is this worth the extra $$$, I guess time will tell. So far I am extremely satisfied with the PRL-V2.

I currently use the PRL-V2 and think that is the way to go. It is a whole new generation of both the venerable Woodpeckers PRL and the QuickLift combined. I have reviews of the original PRL, Quicklift and the PRL-V2, all with lots of photos and most with video that looks at the features of each. See the link below.

Thanks for the responses guys. I ordered the PRL-V2. Now just tapping my toes impatiently waiting for it to come.

I just upgraded my table saw fence to a Biesemeyer and building an extension on the end that will dual purpose as a router table. Could not do this before as I have the Ridgid granite top table saw and no way to attach/support an extension. The Biesemeyer rails are hefty so I can finally add the router table extension.
Now I just have to decide if the TS/Router table will be my primary and get the lift or if I put it on my other table.

That's some "premium toys" you got coming there, Trent.. as I tell my bride, "It's not co-incident that "Boys" and "Toys" rhyme.. linguistically they come from common roots!

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