I second the Bosch 1617 combo. The router is just smooth, powerful and easy to handle. And what’s not to love about the actual wooden handles? Oh, and I think it’s good to get a router with soft start… you turn it on and it slowly revs up to full speed. Without that, it could get a little more dangerous to use unless the trigger happens to be on the handles like on newer Bosch model.

Depending on what tasks you have in mind, a smaller router like the Bosch Colt, or similar may be easier to use on smaller jobs. I’m considering the Colt myself for use as a handheld, while I take my current router and mount it under a table.
