Matt, your difficulty with the on/off switch is confusing to me. I just went down to the workshop and switched mine five or six times to make sure I'm remembering correctly but it seems very natural to me to do one handed. The switch is near the left "handle" when I'm holding the router in a typical fashion. I just slide the door over to the left with my thumb and then roll that thumb down on the rocker switch and flip it down. The door stays out of the way easily when I do this which makes me wonder if your slider door maybe has more spring force than mine.
I also think the Triton routers are very good bargains. Buy one before the Aussies wake up and charge what they're worth. I really like the micro adjust for depth control.

Thanks for the great review. This is the router I've been drooling on down at the local Woodcraft - I want it for the router table I want to build this winter.

thanks matt, i too have been eyeing this router...i want the 3-1/4 as well, but the features are better on the 2-1/4...hopefully they will upgrade the big brother so i can get both and be just as happy with each.
Ain't it cool when you have a seemingly difficult task, then you whip out the right tool for the job and the job almost does itself? I put together a quick-n-dirty circle jig for one of my P-C 690s, and things like cutting circles or rings for donut chucks for the lathe got a whole lot easier.
