One of the more important things to consider is too make sure the plate of the lift fits in the cut out in your router table. Rockler is different from jessem and those may be different from woodpeckers.
Another thing to consider is what router motor are you planning to put in the lift and also in the future. The Rockler only fits the mid size routers like the pc 892/690 , bosch 1617 series and other motors that diameter. Where as the incra can fit most mid size routers and the big pc 6518.
If you plan to put a big motor in the lift either now or in the future, by the right lift now and save money in the long run.
If you are considering Rockler vs incra vs bench dog, incra is the best of the three.

Was just about to give that same “check you table for compatibility” line. Incra says that their lift will not fit Rockler or Bench Dog table cutouts.
