Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 114 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Strong, Reliable, Dependable I used this router for over 8 years. While working in construction as a finish carpenter, I saw and borrowed several different routers. For me, NOTHING compared to this router. There wasn't a job that i did that it couldn't handle. I had multiple jobs that i used it for from simple rounding over the edge to full out raised panels. When it came to flutting, and i did a lot of it, this router is the easiest to hold and manage. After doing several 8ft columns and two mantels with a few custom flutted cased windows and doors, at the end of the day, i was still able to grip it again for those last minute detail work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by router works great It has been years since i have used a router for any of my projects. I use to use an old craftsman router and it worked ok but this one is so much better. I have not even come close to using it for everything that it is capable of but i am sure it will do whatever you want it to. It is the smothest and quietest router I have used. If you are looking for one I would definetly recommend this one. December 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to Use This is the first router I have ever used. It is light enough to make handling it very managable. So far I have used it on 3/4" finish plywood. It cut like butter. The bit adjustment is very easy. I am buying a Rockler universal router base to attach to it to make a larger base for stability. (but it works just fine without it) June 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Overall a great multi-purpose router I've never owned a Bosch tool before so was a bit apprehensive buying. I had the old Porter Cable plunge many years ago and it was a very nice router but sold all my equipment and have now recently bought a full shop again. I couldn't resist this kit finding it on a good sale and I think I also had a 10% coupon off one item. But even at the full retail price, the Bosch router with plunge still remains a good value. I have used it several times now and really love how it handles. It is a very smooth tool, with it's soft-start a very nice feature. Adjusting the speed wheel fixes any rough cuts or burning I have had so far. There is plenty of power, though I have not yet tried it mounted on a table. If I were to complain about something it would be the location of the switch. This is not only Bosch but most other manufacturers as well that place the power switch in pretty inconvenient locations, making it a bit awkward at times. One other nitpicking suggestions would be for Bosch to replace the outdated looking wood grips and use something with a textured or rubberized surface. Overall, these are pretty small details that wouldn't influence my opinion of this being a fantastic router. I would highly recommend it to any woodworker who needs one! December 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by High Quality Router The soft start feature is great, it eliminates the start up jerking. I bought it for my router table, but the plunge base is much better that my other router. October 21, 2014
