I can only speak to the Bosch 1617EVS with 1/2" bits. The depth gauge is short by several inches. I've reported it to Bosch thinking it's not a hard fix that they would correct it but they told me thanks but no thanks.

I think the ergonomics of the handle is very important but difficult to obtain without having the router in hand. Talk to some of your local woodworking buddies and ask if you can put their router in your hand. Of, try a big box store with a good collection of routers on display.
I think what you're saying is a good thought but the problem I always run into is they don't have the brand I want to evaluate. If they have it in a box I have no problem asking an employee to open it but sometimes they won't. I was at Advanced Auto the other month looking at a $200 floor jack that I might have bought but they weren't willing to open the box. There loss.
