For table use, the porter cable speedmatic is absolutely the best you can buy. They've been around forever, and haven't changed much because they're perfect. You can buy it with a fixed or plunge base, or as the motor alone for use with a lift. The lift is really the best way to go if you ask me. Be sure with a router this heavy you get an aluminum plate, not phenolic. Phenolic will sag over time with a router this heavy. I really recommend the milled aluminum plates from Woodpeckers...There's none better. Their lifts are also the best I've seen. www.woodpeck.com
The Bosch Router is a great Power Tool. The other Power Tool manufacturers such as Porter-Cable, Makita, Milwaukee, Hitachi, and Festool will also do an excellent job. Just make sure that you buy a variable speed Power Tool that you can slow down to at least 10,000 RPM's so you can use larger bits like panel cutters.
And for Router tables, I would recommend Bench Dog, WoodHaven, and Jessem. You will be happy with any other these brands.
