1-1/4 HP Compact Router Kit with 3-Bases is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 24.

Only issue I see so far is the clear plastic section on the plunger base is hard to see thru. When you are free handing a cutout its better to use it backward so you can see the cutting head clearly, even though the handles are backward and weird to hold at first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have not yet been able to try out all accessories... Have not yet been able to try out all accessories yet, but like what I've used so far. The plunge base worked fine - I like the variable speed control. I would like a hard case instead of a soft one. This is a REALLY nice tool - but you still want a large router for your router table.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was my big move into the compact router world... This was my big move into the compact router world and I am very impressed with this router. I used the plunge attachment and standard base in the construction of a sit/stand desk for myself and was on a roll after a few test runs on some scrap wood. My only wish is for led lights like the DeWalt.

I really liked the compact size, the feel, and the smoothness of the spindle motor. The attachments are really cool as well. The downside, the offset base. While this is a cool feature I found a manufacturing defect. The cogged pulley that screws down onto the spindle nose was machined to deep. This caused the pulley to tighten down and hit the spindle housing. I still need to call Makita for a fix, I had a washer that I used to space the cog pulley out for a temporary fix. However, the offset base really helped me out.
