I've been watching this one for a while and haven't found a better price elsewhere so I snagged one this morning. According to CamelCamelCamel, it's the lowest price on Amazon in a year.

There's a version of this that comes with a plunge base right? Can I buy that separate later?

Yes, the Dewalt DNP612 plunge base is designed for this router and it can be purchased separately: https://www.amazon.com/DEWALT-DNP...dpSrc=srch

Got one, thanks OP. Just did a large trim and moulding project with a friend in my 3 bedrooms, and we used his Ridgid compact router quite a bit. Figured I should get one of my own, and all of my other tools are DeWALT

How does this compare to the newer Bosch GKF125CEN Colt 1.25 HP (Max) Variable-Speed Palm Router?

This router and the bosch are junk. The dewalt router don't last that long. The bosch base is crap. The lock nut does not work after a while. Makita makes one of the best router and ridgid trim router is good too for $100

Agreed on the Bosch base. The locking nut design is horrible.

Did you make your own trim with it?

I have this router. It's not bad, but I haven't put it through a lot of work yet. I do sometimes wish I had a bigger one.

The Dewalt had the potential to be the best compact router available, but they dropped the ball with the quality control, and piss poor customer service when you do have a problem with defective parts. The original Bosch Colt is a POS and I wouldn't trust Bosch to make much of an improvement.
