Great compact router, good power for it's size.
Needed a plunge router for doing mortises. Had my eye on this thing for a while, a friend of mine had one that he uses to mill out lower receivers, and figured that if it will mill aluminum, a little red oak won't hurt it. Received the router and I discovered that the edge guide that comes with is only for the fixed base. I found out that the DEWALT DW6913 Router Edge Guide will fit with the plunge base. With the router, plunge base, up-cut straight bit, and edge guide, my mortises turned out OK. If I made a jig I could have done them with more precision. Have also used with smaller round over bits, and a chamfer bit.

Decent Starter Router
This is my first router. I don't own many woodwork specific tools but this Makita compact router accomplished the task I bought it for and the wife has already dreamed up a couple other projects for it. Only had it a couple weeks so I can't speak to its longevity which is sometimes a problem for tools manufactured in China. I also haven't use the plunge base yet, but I was please with the various dust collection options and I'm glad the router stripped down so easily to handle the various bits and tasks. it would have been great if the kit came with the dust collection attachments but its not like that is a deal breaker for me in retrospect.

Great Deal!
I gave it as a birthday gift to my daughter, who is a beginner woodworker. The tool gives her the options to learn how flexible a wood working tool a router can be.

Nice Quality
I started making lighthouses a few years ago and wanted to try a router for some of the detailing. The first accessory for the router was a router table because of the small work I was doing. So far the router has more than enough power & has allowed me to make detail work that I couldn't before.

"silky smooth power in a compact package"
Never having owned a router before, I find myself amazed at the things I can do with it and with the ease of use. As a hobby guitar maker I can do anything I need to do with this tool and am very happy with the service CPO provided to me. Thumbs up for Makita and CPO.
