For small projects only
Honestly its a great router. Definitely does the job well. However it eats the battery in MAYBE 20 min with continuous use. So great for small projects however recommend electric powered router for large projects. I had to rotate through 3 different ryobi batteries on charge to complete my project.

This a very good Trim Router, not great, but very close. I've used it quite a bit over the last year.
The motor is very powerful, I've pushed it harder than you really should. I've had 1.5 inch depth by .5 inch with bits in it and it doesn't struggle. Ergonomics are great, it is very easy to hold and handle.
The edge does not exists, it's been out of production for a long time. I've heard you can special order it, but the person I asked at Home Depot said they couldn't. No way to hook a hose to it and trust me, it needs it. I think the Rigid unit is identical and I've been tempted to buy it's vacuum guard. making adjustments with it is ok, could be better. This will crush batteries, They really need a brushless option. Definitely buy the double pack of 6ah batteries.
When you factor the price, how well it performs, it's a great buy. Honestly, you need to spend a lot more for routers that address my cons.
In a previous life, I used a corded trim router daily. Since then, I've wanted to try a cordless. When Ryobi started making one that is so affordable, I new it was in my future. I use this router to radius corners and edges and it works well for that. I expect it'll trim laminates and veneers just as well. Obviously, a tool is only as good as the cutter you put in it so, keep it sharp. It doesn't seem to spin quite as fast as it's corded cousins, but plenty fast enough to do the work I use it for. My son and I built a small carrying case (photo) for his chefs knives and I used the trimmer to add a 1/4" radius to the box so we could wrap it in vinyl later.
I was searching for a good router for my budget. I came across this one and was unsure it would have enough power for me. I couldn't be more wrong. I am so happy I bought this router. I love that it has a base that can move up or down with a quick release or a dial to get it to that perfect depth. It's cool that it has a built in light too but super helpful for me because I use it in a well lit area. The only thing I can see that could be a problem is that it does use the battery power kinda fast. If you have more then one battery or if you have small projects this won't be an issue. For me it's perfect. I would recommend it.
