For a first router table this is a decent one to learn on. The biggest downside is the mounting plate, it is plastic (a pretty thick plastic- but still) and a tiny bit warped/uneven. If you take your time locking in your measurements you can get repeatable and accurate results with this table. If you have a Makita trim router it will mount VERY close to the edge where a throat plate snaps in. I know it's not on the supposed list but why make it only work with a handful of routers?

Looks awesome. Artwork!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just bought this yesterday, I was sad to find out I need to buy a router. But I'm pleased with the design. The box needs details like router sold separately!

Works with Dewalt router
Ryobi doesnt list the dewalt router in the list of supported routers. What they mean is 'we wont give you the screws to connect the dewalt router' (even though they provide them for other brands) so figure it out yourself.
Just find the perfect triangle pattern and it will match the ryobi plate no problem.

works with dewalt dw6184 fixed base router
works with dewalt dw6184 fixed base router but you will need 3 8-32x3/4" router screws. One will need 2mm removed, which can be done with a band saw 18tpi blade, hack saw, dremel with a cutoff wheel, or an angle grinder with either a flap wheel, or a cutoff wheel.

This table is missing some of the nicer features of a higher end table, but otherwise it is an excellent buy for the price. The baseplate is very flexible and can be a real chore to get perfectly in plane, but once that is setup it isn't so bad. Ditto for the fence - mine snags a little as I try to slide it back and forth. There is an issue where the outboard fence will move very slightly with respect to the inboard fence, but I haven't tried to make anything precise enough where this is an issue.
The tabletop itself is already wearing after cutting about 75 four-foot boards. I suppose that is to be expected, but I had hoped it would hold up a little longer. The ruler and other guides on the tabletop are printed on and are wearing off as well, especially the marks for positioning the fence. It isn't a problem yet, but I am sure it will be eventually. All-in-all, it'd call it average quality but given the price it's a great value. I'd say this is a perfect table for a beginner craftsman.
Also, I see lots of people asking if the DeWalt routers fit. It's odd to me that the router table is billed as a universal fit but all the questions about a DeWalt router have responses from Ryobi saying they're not compatible. On one hand, don't call it universal if it isn't universal. On the other hand, the DeWalt router I use (DW618) fits just fine. However, the Ryobi table comes with three different types of router mount screws and none fit the DeWalt, so you'll have to pick up your own. For my router, I found the #8-32x5/8 screws fit perfect. I went with stainless steel because I don't want them corroding over time.

When I picked up the router table at the store, it felt like a very serious table. I got at home, it went together well, and is rocksolid. However, the screws that come with the table are very cheaply made. I have an older model Porter Cable 892 and two of the plate screw holes have shallow seats. So, on my second screw and after a half a dozen turns, the screw bottomed out and broke off in the router. So, now I have a router that I cannot attach a plate to and a router table with out the screws needed.

Very User Friendly
I have completed multiple tongue and groove projects with this table with alot of ease. Very easy to set up and the fence works really well for adjustments. Vacuum dust collection is great as well with only a shop vac hooked up to it. The only issue I have encountered is the mounting plate hardware does tend loosen over time causing the mounting plate to get thrown out of level, which is a bit frustrating when in the middle of a piece and your stock gets hung on the lip of the plate. With some minor adjustments and checking everything prior to starting a project this is a great table for the price. Not to mention, if you're a Ryobi fan it looks great in the shop with all the other tools to match.

Can be made serviceable with a little effort
Details: I'm experienced with handheld routers but a "3-in-1" router guide kit I recently tried gave some results that made me look like a total klutz, so I decided to get a router table. Professional grade tables are too big for my space and quite expensive, so I tempered my expectations and bought the Ryobi table to go with my Ryobi R163G router, itself a serviceable - but not outstanding - tool.
Assembly was simple and the table is reasonably sturdy but there were a few QC issues. It took some judicious filing and polishing of the hardware to make the fence adjustments work without binding. Shimming was needed to take out the considerable slop in the miter gage and correct misalignment of the MDF face of the outfeed fence. (The fence itself is plastic, as is the outfeed fence offset adjustment) There's only one (plastic) featherboard supplied - two would be helpful. Adjusting the router mounting plate (plastic again) takes a little effort since it's not perfectly flat. (Neither is the table top, for that matter.) The instructions call for installing a guard on the bottom of the table behind the router - the only discernable purpose of this guard is to obstruct access to the router when you want to change the bit. And the power cord is absurdly short at about 18 inches.

Great Buy, However...
If you own a base router, then having a table is a MUST, actually I think its an absolute must. This table is sturdy, very easy to assemble ( less than 10 minutes), and there are videos on youtube to show how as well. However, the one drawback is the dust. Even when hooked to a shop vac it will still have a considerable amount of dust to clean up after use. For me thats a minor setback but worth noting. Overall excellent table, because it works great and its not oversized. It can be used as is or attacked to a work bench. Well done Ryobi, well done.

Good inexpensive table, I think.
We bought this table a few days ago, as I decided that making my own bullnose stair tread edges was a good beginner project and since Forbo no longer makes the stair tread bullnose for their Marmoleum products. How hard could making a few round over cuts and dados be? Not too hard it turns out. I bought a Freud FT2000 router 20 years ago to put an edge on a cherry bar and the router has sat collecting dust since then. Retired now, blah blah blah, so I have to pick my battles. The Freud router didn't fit the hole patterns on this table's insert plate, so I carefully measured where the 3rd hold needed to be and using a countersink got it close enough for the router to mount ok. I finished the bullnose and dado cuts on this table just fine. Though I currently lack any kind of dust collection, clean up took longer than the cuts did. The attached image shows the installed stair treads.
