Depends on if you plan on changing some parts around. No HDMI ports though. It's not recommended to be running continuously, so you might want to look elsewhere as your signal will be variable.

That's a heck of a deal on a well-rated router. If I didn't have a good router already, I'd be all over this.

Depends on what you have now, but there's a pretty good chance your palm/trim router doesn't come with a 1/2" collet like this one does.

More powerful motor.
I am guessing your palm router is 1/4" shank only.
This bumps you up to 1/2" shank...and that usually equals cleaner cuts as 1/2" shank has less chatter.

If you ever decide to buy or make a router table, that palm router is not going to work very well. This will.

Nothing wrong with a good palm router...but that is more of an accessory to a good base router like this.

Yep - from another seller, so it looks like Amazon's out of stock now too on this deal.
