This router has plenty of power and a smooth plunge motion. I wish were a little quieter; however, I have only heard one router that was substantially quieter. There are four things I wish were really different: 1. For router table use the shaft could be about a half inch longer for easier bit changing. 2. A switch on the handle would be much more convenient and I believe safer for free hand routing. 3. For router table use crank stile raising and lowering mechanism will be very handy. I use the Router Raiser on mine, but a factory built in system would probably be better. 4. A quick change chuck would be nice. (I replaced mine with a quick change.)
