I don't know what all the negative reviews are about. Possibly someone got a "lemon". I have had this router for about a year and it has performed extremely well. The ease of switching from plunge to fixed base is quite easy. You can purchase other accessories for it but that is true of virtually any power tool you purchase. I had been using a Craftsman 1 1/2 HP router and still do in my router table. I haven't tried this one in my table yet. I would say if you have/had a problem with this router, call PC their customer service seems to be pretty good from my experience.

Great router. Quality plunge base and fixed base. I recommend getting the speed lift handle if using the fixed base in a router table. It's quieter than my 1 3/4 PC router.

I purchased this router about a year ago. It has been in a router table right from the start. I do like the router but did have a problem right from the start, the cast aluminum clamp that is used to tighten the motor in the base wallowed out right away and I could not get replacement part for it. They have been on back order now for over six months. The biggest problem that I have had with the router is that when it is mounted under the router table, the dust created when routing gets between the base and the motor making the it almost impossible to make adustments up and down and/or getting the motor out of the base to clean the dust out. I remedied this problem by purchasing a hight quality lift from Incra Tools, the rounter with this lift is a dream to use now and I am very happy with it. No complaints about the motor or any issues other the parts availabilty and the dust getting into the base.
