I found this router by accident, someone actually had one for sale on Kijiji for around $100 so I picked it up. Immediately I was in love because while this machine is not perfect it is very capable and easy to handle.
I've used several 1.5-2 hp routers, all the big brands and some of the Made In Junkland units and while they all basically worked this Elu design has stood the test of time and Dewalt has been careful to not revise it too much over the years.
Pros: Controls in the handles
Cons: Not good for under a table, worse than other plungers in my opinion
On-off switch takes some getting used to and is easy to unlock while operating
Cord should come out at a 90* angle so you can set the router on it's motor housing more easily
I'm sure there are better plunge routers but for the price, I think this Dewalt would be awfully tough to beat.
