Powerful
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this tool approximately two months ago. I have used it on several projects and it never seems to struggle and has plenty of power. Give a nice clean cut and no kickback.

    Great plunge router, but!!!!!
    Router was good and powerful for the first 3 yrs of occasional use up until it was out of the 2 yr warranty. 1st gripe, it seems the power cord comes straight out of the top that is in the way when changing out bits. 2nd and most important is the plunge lock is defective. When locking the plunge and starting my routing, the plunge slips, which messed up the work I was doing. After careful inspection, I found the screw for the lock that is attached to the locking lever was broke inside the housing and I was unable to fix myself. Ordered a new plunge router (not a Ryobi). My other Ryobi products seem to be doing fine though.

      Cheap and works but finicky
      This is probably the cheapest plunge router you will be able to get. It has a lot of power and can run large 1/2" collet bits. Router has a easy to access button to lock the collet so you can tighten or loosen it with the provided wrench. It has a pretty sturdy build for its body and feels very tough. The cheapness of the router does come at a cost, primarily for the plunge function and the depth lock. The plunge is not smooth at all and you will have to give it a very large push for it to reach the deeper depths and you'll have to try multiple times to get it at the right spot. The depth lock is very risky as you have to make sure you are locking it down REALLY tight to make sure your bit doesn't come back up. However, if you continually use the depth lock, the lock itself becomes loose and looser which makes you have to tighten it more and more, leading to a vicious cycle. The alignment of the router is also not perfect out of the box. I had to sand off some plastic on the straight edge of the router base as the black plastic crept past the metal straight edge and would throw off cuts very slightly. If you need a powerful router to work on pieces that do not cost lots of money, this will get the job done. But if you are unable to accept the risk of it potentially destroying your work do not get this. If you need to reproduce certain precise depths do not get this.

        Good Quality Plunge Router
        This is a really good quality plunge router. Measurements on it appear to be accurate so far and no major issues with it. I think a DIYer would love this thing and will save a lot of money. Good HP with this one so it should be able to handle the harder woods.

        Excellent Quality, even better price
        This is one of my favorite RYOBI tools. I purchased it primarily for hand carved signs and other pieces of home decor. Plenty of power for ripping through a variety of different woods, easy bit changes, and reliable depth control. This tool has it all.

          Easy to use!
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Helped me complete a project for my best friends wedding. Super easy to use the locking feature for the plunge works great had to adjust measurement gauge only because of how I installed the bit. Felt like I had great control while using and plenty of power!!!

          Better Router than the Expensive ones
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] For years ive made due with a fixed based router. Time to upgrade. Shopped around a lot but kept drawing back to the roybi plunge. Simple reasons, Outstanding features, cost and simplistic to use and grow with. It can fine tune to a degree of perfection first time using it. I looked at ones 2-3 times the cost, but none come with the quality, ive come to love with roybi for years with. None had a simple guard that prevents chips from flying up into your face, this one does. Having availability to use 1/4 or 1/2 " bits ,easy bit changes ,you simply can not ask for more. Ive used mine with in the last 30 days to finish and dress up 3 projects, currently its sculpting the edge of my deck railings, I'm using it more and more. I'm becoming a better wood smith because of a well made tool that permits me to grow and expand my reaches. The attached photo is of our new patio table my router cut the rabbit for the surface boards to lay flus with the surface, round over on the edges and legs and rabbit bit to fix the few small errors I hit along the way.
