My opinion: look for one rated 2+ HP, and a kit that has interchangeable bases. True enough, a plunge can do practically anything a fixed base will do…..but having a fixed base will allow you to cobble together a simple router table which could be extremely useful. If the router has through the base adjustment you’re way ahead. My choiuce in this category would be the Milwaukee 5616-24 kit. There are a lot of other ones that also very good, and I’m sure every one of them will be recommended; you’ll just have to try and look/handle/ogle some and go from there.
