It's pretty great
It's pretty great, but not the best. The dust collection could be improved and it the sliding action is a little tough. I do love the grip though. All around a solid router.

Great router that makes superb cuts....
Great router that makes superb cuts. It does have two areas that require improvement:1. Porter Cable needs to supply a vacuum hose / adapter for the tiny handle nozzle the router base comes with. After some looking I found a corrugated hose [a local home center]I was able to adapt to a great vacuum hose.2. The bushing insert will not allow for use of the vacuum insert. It will fit in, but changing or adjusting bit height is no longer possible. It kind of defeats the idea of having the vacuum attachment.

Intermediate power range useful for advanced work. Plunge base provides extra flexibility.
