I have decided to get a new router, mainly for under table use and occasional plunge use. I am stuck on the decision of which one to buy. I have narrowed the choices down to 3 routers, Porter Cable 893PK, Bosch 1617evspk (all magnesium casing), and the Hitachi M12vc. I have read reviews on all three, but can't come to conclucion. If you had to choose one of these 2 1/4 hp Routers with a fixed base/plunge base package in the $200 range, which would you get? If you have any other router suggestions, please feel free to post them. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Thanks to everyone for their responses. I am leaning towards the Bosch because of the way it feels, the handles feel good, the weight is right, and I like the plunge base better than the other two. The only thing I am worried about is the corrosion problem. Is there any way to tell if they have changed all the motor housings yet? I would really hate to get it, use it a couple months, and then have to turn around and send it in for repairs. Does this corrosion problem happen pretty quick, or does it take a couple of years?

Thanks.
