Welcome Mapmaker. Most routers in the "medium" range allow for above the table adjustments. This is not as big a deal as some people would have you believe. Odds are you will have your router mounted on a plate that lifts out of the table for bit changes, and it is easy enough to make a height adjustment at this time. Most of these routers are very easy to adjust under the table as well. Freud makes quality tools. The best way to buy a router is to get one in your hands and see how it feels to you, you are the one who will be using it. Remember to flip it upside down since this is how it will be table mounted. If you are comfortable with the controls and adjustments then you are getting close to a winner. You want the ability to use guide bushings with templates. Having both a 1/4" and 1/2" collet is another plus, not all bits are made in both sizes. A light is a nice feature but few models have them at this time. Dust collection is a very big plus. Aside from saving time on clean up you will be keeping more dust out of your lungs, and this is a good thing.
