Woodcraft has this combination on sale at a good price. I have assembled everything but have yet to use the router. I did turn it on and was impressed with the soft start feature. The plunge mechanism is smooth and works well.
So far I’m impressed with the workmanship of the table and fence (nice and heavy) and everything fit together well. The installation instructions could easily be improved but I got through it without too much angst. However, I was missing parts. The flat topped countersink 6 mm bolts that hold the router to the router table insert plate were missing. The above table “Depth Adjustment Wrench” and 1/4 collet were missing as well. I called Freud and they are shipping them to me with no questions asked. Very nice. The customer service was as good as I have experienced and I was impressed. I didn’t want to wait on the missing screws and couldn’t find them locally so I filed flat the round head counter sink bolts from the routers original base plate. Also they were too long so I cut them of with my Dremel. Sounds like more trouble that it really was. You don’t need them if intend to keep the router dedicated to the router table.
