I have the Triton, and it does drop, after routing, when it is unlocked. I have heard this from numerous individuals on other forums. One work around is to reach underneath and tighten up the height adjust knob before unlocking. I really like everything else about it.The Triton doesn't need a lift and I haven't heard members complain about there being slop in the mechanism that causes it to drop. You still have to reach in and unlock it to change it. That and the extra heat buildup is why I don't box my router in. I have heard a few complaints about 1 or more lifts that were also slipping but I can't remember which ones.
