Love the handle trigger and soft start. Very low torque on start up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TC upgraded to a better router
Product had all features that were advertised. An unexpected surprise was that it came in a nice storage case!
The router is powerful and runs very smoothly. Quite responsive.
Only flaw I've seen so far is that when mounted in a non Bosch router table the depth adjustment is in the back so I have to look behind the table or turn the table around so I can see what I am doing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tct Easy and safe operation
Soft start and an on/off switch in the handle makes this router very easy to operate and control.
Variable speed is also an asset if larger diameter bits are used. Visibility is good and the fan removes most of the cuttings from the router path. This router was purchased primarily for the plunge base. Use at present has been limited, but has not disappointed . The plunge function was slightly sticky until lubed with a dry lubricant. The location of the on/off switch makes this router unusable with an aftermarket router lift in a router table, although it can be used with the fixed base which is adjustable through the table..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LakewoodCarpenter If you're in the market for a router, this is it.
I am a longtime cabinetmaker and carpenter and I have used a wide variety of routers—this Bosch is simply the best I've ever purchased. Powerful, lightweight, and fun. I looked at the ones on the shelf at Home Depot but after doing a little research found this model a better fit for my use and for my desire to buy the best router I could afford. I have to admit to being partial to Bosch but I also own power hand tools made by Dewalt and Porter Cable. Nevertheless, with certain tools, Bosch is my favorite brand. So if you like Bosch, and want a router, this model is a terrific choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amracing Very pleasing purchase!!!
Exactly what I was hoping for, Quality, Smooth, Quiet, Plenty of Power. Nice case fits both bases. Adjustment works great on the fixed base, have not used the plunge base yet but looks nice as well. Would absolutely buy again or recommend. I have not been let down with Bosch Quality so far.

Great features, heavy duty, well made. I was looking for a router that would hold up and this seems to be the one. Haven't had it long, but everything I've done so far with it has turned out great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by info2x Great router
Bought this router for use in a router table. I've had great luck with Bosch tools and after reading reviews here and elsewhere this one sounded like a no brainer. Since I was going to use it with a router table a huge selling feature was the swap-able bases as well as the ability to adjust the router height from above the table.
