The Bosch MRF23EVS is the only fixed base-router of any kind that has a trigger-controlled power switch in the base handle, so you don't have to reach up to a switch on the motor. This router includes a powerful 15 Amp, 2.3HP, 10,000 to 25,000 RPM (no-load) motor with a one-piece armature shaft for accuracy and long bit-shank capacity. In addition, the motor has LED lights to provide always-on, optimal lighting. The motor is held by the base using the Bosch-invented router quick-clamp system, allowing tool-free movement of motor. The MRF01 fixed base features a versatile depth adjustment system that allows for easy macro- and micro-fine adjustment with a 1-5/8-Inch continuous micro-fine adjustment range. This base also has threaded holes positioned in common 3-hole pattern for mounting to an optional router table. Moreover, it features the ability to adjust the depth from above the table using the included T-wrench, so there is no need to buy an expensive after-market router lift. The MRF01 also has the Bosch Precision Centering Design that allows the sub base to be perfectly centered around the bit, which makes it easy to keep the bit on intended cut line when using jigs, templates, dovetail fixtures and similar guidance devices. The kit also includes 1/2-Inch and 1/4-Inch self-releasing collets and comfortable forged bit-change wrenches.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I also own a Bosch 1619EVS Plunge router (recently purchased) which I am very pleased with, which is why I chose to buy the Bosch MRF23VRS Fixed Base router. I was not disappointed, it also is a quality product. It came as advertised with a 1/2" & 1/4" collets and the usual collet spanners. Bosch should also include a base / guide bush centering tool, it is essential with a fixed base router to make sure the base and guide bush is centered (even though they claim the base is centered during product assembly - Mine was off center and had to be corrected) and especially if you are going to use a dovetail jig etc. Bosch advertise this router as being a good choice for use with jigs. The height adjustment both coarse and micro are accurate. the handles which also contain the power switch and "lock on" are very comfortable, the built in base lights are a plus helping to illuminate the cutting area, especially when using the router with jigs.
This is a terrific router. As an acoustic guitar builder, I need to make very precise cuts for bindings and purfling. Having the on/off switch on the handle was essential for me, and gives me the control I seek. This Bosch is heavy but steady. Buy it. You won't regret it!
