Default Router Table Advice

Looking to buy a complete router table. Yes I know I can build one but at this time prefer to buy the complete package. I have narrowed it down to two:
The Kreg or
Woodpecker with super fence
Both with steel frame support.I see that the Kreg has steel supports under the table to prevent sag but cannot determine if the woodpecker table has the same.
Also going to put in a router so it will be a router to go with the woodpecker unilift, router lift, or the big triton which has built in adjustment.
If anyone has any advice or has used any of these I would be most grateful.

Hello, Niall I think that You have come to the best place to gather information. The one and only place in My opinion is the Oak Park table top. They have had good savings before Christmas. I will check the post information and be back. http://us.oak-park.com/catalogue.html?list=RT01-- Check out all the videos, and such. at the sale price, it is a good buy. If You follow the Router Workshop series that was on P.B.S. Copies of the programs are still available!

Hi Niall:

Howard's comments are bang on. When you purchase a router table, you don't just buy something to run sticks across, you buy into a philosophy of working with a router. The OakPark "system" is elegant in its' simplicity and you can build or buy as is your want. The learning curve is less steep than with other philosophies and the whole exercise is less expensive and more versatile and just as precise. Remember to practice with their "fine adjusting tool." It's good to 1/10,000"
