I agree 100% and I use these tools professionally.
I purchased the Hitachi from Lowe's back in May when the were doing the clearance on the Hitachi name tools to get the Metabo on the shelves. Look and felt more like a toy then a series work tool. The plunge base seemed "clunky" and the slides from side to side almost felt as if they were at a different tension. I picked up the router for about $80 out the door, took it back. I have an older Hitachi M12V 3 1/4 hp plunge router, and while it has its faults, it is built a hell of a lot better then the newer Metabo line. In my humble opinion, Hitachi has slid from a pro line to pro-sumer manufacture of tools. This comes from a guy that spent $600 for the original Hitachi CF8B back in 1993, and I still use it ion the job with no issues. As for Bosch routers, I have 6 router including a Bosch 1604 from the late 80's. Though I did not need another router I picked up the Bosch 1617EVSPK during the Prime day deal when it was $50 off. Night and day difference between that tool and the Metabo. Even comes with a T handle wrench in the case for adjustments when mounted to a router table. If your looking for an excellent router, that is the one I would recommend.

Don't be sorry. The Bosch is the gold standard of mid-sized routers. As much as I like my Hitachi/Metabo stuff, I would take that Bosch over the Metabo if given the choice.

Why does it say 2.25 hp (14 A) in the title, but then it says 11 A in the description?

As if a tool could sustain anywhere near 2.25HP at 14A, either... Or like a tool could operate on a 15A circuit. All silly garbage numbers.

I have the Hitachi-branded "version". It's awesome and, perhaps more importantly, is compatible with so many other-branded jigs & accessories. Great deal, OP!

I have that Hitachi also. I picked up cheap many years ago at the name change. I bought it primarily to rout out speaker cabinets. My old Porter Cable is collecting dust. That Hitachi is a workhorse and it looks like Metabo hasn't changed much. My only small gripe I support is the bit change out but it's minor.
