We have several table mounted Porter Cable routers. This is the first time we have used a lower horse power one. So far so good. How long it lasts under steady use will determine if it is a good value or not.

Still going strong!
I bought a 6902 (non-lever release model) 20 years ago and it's still running strong. I alternate between the fixed and plunge base as needed and also use it on a router table. The router doesn't care what I ask it to do, it just keeps on working. It's a bit much for delicate work but I have a laminate trimmer for that. A dust collection option would be nice.
