This was my first router purchase and I am blown away by Bosch. I just built my first workbench and used this beauty to route the edges with a 1/16" round over bit. The edge was perfect. I think I'm in love with this new tool. If you're looking for a great router for a reasonable price do yourself a favor and get this Bosch combo kit. You won't be disappointed!

I would have to say that this router is one of the best tool purchases that I have made. I've had it for about 2 years with no problems, at all. Plenty of power and very comfortable to use.

Have had this router for roughly 4 years now and am very happy with it. The switch did stop working on me about a year ago, but researched it on the web and wound up just having to diasassemble it and blow the switch out with compressed air.

I got this router to replace my old router that was worn out after 30 years of use. I am very happy with this router package. I shopped around quite a bit and didn't find anything comparable. Lots of options with the two bases and at no additional cost. It is quiet and powerful at the same time.

This product may deserve a 5 star rating, I've just not used it enough yet to give it that rank. I bought it for several reasons, height adjustment from the top of a router table with the router mounted beneath, variable speed, adequate horsepower, and the fixed base/plunge base capability.
I've only used it one time, with the fixed base mounted to my router table and the performance was flawless. A couple of purchase cautions, the first model of this machine did not feature the option of being able to adjust the cutting height from the top of a router table with the router mounted inverted below it. Make sure you get the RA-1161 fixed base. Second, I believe this "2nd generation 1617EVSPK router has a "sealed" ON/OFF switch which eliminates the switch problems addressed by owners of the earlier model.

I have only had this router for 9 months. I like the router, but I just had it fail. Probably the switch problem I have been reading about.

Purchased for my son as a X-mas gift. He is using it to build a shuffleboard table out of oak. Very useful for this project and many others to come. Great product.
