Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bob Good for light routing work
I got this since I don't envision a ton of heavy duty router work in my future. Used it once to rout out a 3/8" rabbet along a piece of fascia. Directions say you should only cut out a certain depth of material at a time, so I did have to make a couple of passes to get to the depth I required. It was easy to handle with one hand, and doesn't take up a lot of space. Not ideal for every routing job, but will work for some basic things.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jacob The best tool I have purchased in a long time!!
Spend the extra money and get all the attachments. The offset router head is great. You need an allen head wrench for it. An alan had wrench from a garbage disposal works perfectly!!! You'll see what I mean when you use it.

Bought the other comparable router at the same price point first because it came with the carry bag and had the tempting service agreement. Should have known I was paying for those things because the actual tool quality was pretty run-of-the-mill. I returned it and bought this router. Don't be fooled by the similar reviews when doing your comparisons. This Makita is a fine, meticulously crafted tool with plastic and metal in all the right places. It routes beautifully, is easy to assemble/disassemble for bit and accessory swaps and the bits don't get heat-stuck (as was the case with the other router). Many add-ons are available for this as well for different applications. If a carry bag is a must i'd recommend searching the web and spending the extra $15 or so for a small Makita bag or just use a generic tote. It's worth it.
