The dewalt 1.25 compact router with plunge base is a great little tool. Easy to handle , soft start , easy bit change, easy to see work. In fact I have two. Use a lot . Good price! What more could you ask for?

Easy to use for small pieces if wood. The plunge router is excellent for key hole cuts.

This is an excellent router and is now my favorite router. Excellent quality, great control when in the hand. Easily adjustable. I just wish it came with a centering tool for installing the base plates and the covered on/off switch could have a better "feel". These are minor issues. If you need to be able to keep maximum control, I highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hothmob Easy to handle and plenty of power
This kit is perfect when i need to do roundovers, flush trim, carving a notch, and I don't feel like busting out my huge hitachi plunge router. In fact, anything handheld, i seem to go for this now, even over my Bosch colt. It's a much beefier than the trim router, and not nearly as cumbersome as the 2.5 horse.
For my work, this is an excellent choice for routing outside my router table.

After reading the reviews on many of the small routers I bought this DeWalt. It arrived in just a few days so points for prompt shipping. I was a bit surprised on opening the box as there was no packing, just a single cardboard divider down the middle of the box. The router was no worse for wear having been shipped without benefit of several oversized pieces of styrofoam and I had only a cardboard box to recycle. So the environmentalist in me is happy. I've only used the router on a couple of projects. One using a flush cut bit to fit 1/2 in. MDF to a door to make a work bench. (I bought dust control shrouds made for this router at another site.) I found with the flush cut bit it still sprayed dust everywhere. However, when I switched to a round over bit almost no dust escaped. The router is small enough to easily control with one hand and powerful enough to do this type of job. The electronic speed control worked perfectly and the soft start is good. No more having the router trying to twist out of your hands on start up. I watched a couple of videos on YouTube on the various features of this router which made it easier since I'm years behind on routers. Overall it is a great little router, easy to handle, easy to use and looks to be well made. Buy the dust control shrouds for both the plunge and standard, they are cheap and well worth the money as they work very well.
