Overall this is a great little router. The ergonomics are great. It is comfortable to hold and easy to maneuver. There is plenty of power and the soft start motor is really nice. The electronic technology that keeps the router running at speed under load works as advertised. I have most of the available accessories and they are great too.

Here is why I rate it 4 stars instead of 5:

1. No variable speed. Believe it or not this matters. Many times I could have made a really good cut a perfect cut if I could have slowed the motor. Making light cuts helps when the application allows.
2. D-base not standard. If you buy this router instead of its yellow cousin order the D base too. It is a real help when doing fine edge work.

This is not a criticism but it is something else to consider if your budget only allows for one router - you can get just about any bit you want in a 1/2" shank. For smaller bits that only come in 1/4" shanks you can change to a 1/4" collet in the bigger routers. This router only takes 1/4" shank bits.

This is the perfect marriage between the 1.5 horse standard size and the smaller trim routers. It is smaller in size but with the full circumference base housing leaving no chance for flexing or varying depth which has been a problem with the half circumference base housings of the small trim routers.It also has the proper base plate for the template collar rings for doing door and jamb dapping.

Needed a smaller router for laminate edge trimming. Also ran into need where in a tight space my standard size Porter-Cable router with its diameter would not fit. This smaller router did the job. Would highly recommend this product.

I'm a sub contractor, and bought this to mortise door hinges and latch and strikes on new blank doors. Works well, is light, powerful, gets the job done quick and neatly. If this one got lost or stolen, I would buy the same router again.

plenty of power, the table could be a bit larger, but I'll fix that. I have small hands and I find it comfortable. Well worth the price!

This is a very convenient size of router to use one handedly. The soft start of Porter Cable products is really great.

I'm a contractor & designer, Porter Cable is my choice , and I have about dozen or so...ranging from the trim routers to the 3 1/2 HP plunge units.
This was a new design, I was purchasing several 7310 3/4 Trim routers, and ordered one of these to give it a try...
I like the size... though I still have use for my 1 1/2 HP s and the D handle 1 3/4 HP's models , I think I'll get a few more of these as they are very handy in the shop.
