I stopped by my local Woodcraft yesterday just to look around and saw that they had the freud FT1700CVEK onsale and showed it to my wife with no intention of buying it. When she saw it was almost half price she told me to get it but when I went to get one I said how about this one instead for only $30 more. It was the FT1702CVEK and she said no problem.
I don't know if anyone here has tried one but I'm impressed with it. You can run it at full speed and still have a normal conversation while it's running. I think I might mount this router in my router table since it is variable speed and it is already setup to make adjustments from the top of the table and you can lock/unlock the spindle from above the table.
