I own 5 routers. Without question, my favorite is the Festool OF 1400 EQ. It has the right weight, power, balance, etc. and everything works very smoothly. Micro adjusting the depth of plunge is easy. One great feature that I have not seen on any router is their ratchet approach to bit exchanges. You place a wrench on the nut, hold down a button and loosen or tighten with a ratchet motion. Very slick.

As much as I like this router, I am not sure I would buy one if I could not find a good used one at a good price. They are expensive. As great as mine is, I am not 100% certain that I would pay full price for a new one. I also like a Makita of a comparable size and the Makita is less than half the price.
