Welcome to the forum Russell.
I've never  personally owned AEG, but i have seen alot about on sites I've worked on. I have heard alot of good things about them though. somewere on this website there is a video review that Ben did on some AEG cordless tools... he seemed quite impresed.
I hope this helps.

aeg are owned by bosch,nuff said.
seriously though the aeg is a real workhorse of a router.if its a good price go for it.
depending on the work youdothe bosch GOF series of routers are worth a look.
go for the pro models not the diy stuff.

thanks for replies.  right iv,e decided not to buy the aeg i think it,s to big for what i need it for.
I'm new to the world of routing Ive only used other peoples for various jobs (round over, chamfer, slot cutting for biscuit jointing, rebating].  I'm a wood floor layer and work with a lot of hardwoods I basically need a router which can perform these tasks. I wont be using the router everyday but i am interested in learning to do more with routers.  I

  Ive got 2 routers in mind the trend t4ek 850w, i like this because it looks a good size to handle and control but was worried the power and the size of the base plate for the tasks i need it for besides it,s a very good price for a good brand. 
the other 1 is the Triton MOF001 1400W its got a good right up and power its bigger and heavier and I'm sure it will do the tasks i need it for but was wondering was it unnecessary and that maybe it was a bit big               thanks would appreciate your help

russell,you say you're a floor layer?by trade?for a living?you may need a router in 110v for h&s purposes
trend t4 is more of a diy type router you maybe better with the trend t5
the dewalt dw615 and dewalt dw621 are worth a look as is the bosch gof900.
 
have a squint on ebay you'llfind something like for the right price

hey russell
 
i disagree with will on the fact that the trend t4 is a diy router i'm a carpenter by trade and own a trend t4 and a t10 and have owned makita routers and dewalt 1/4" and 1/2" and the trend equivelents blow the pants off them
 
i looked at the t5 before buying the t4 and depending on your needs the t4 is a lot easier to use as you can operate it one handed
 
what do you need it for if its for biscuit jointing or making tongue and groove i would personally go for a 1/2" ie the t10 or t11
 
as for bosch i see them on the same par as ryobi more orientated towards the more serious diyer not for a tradesman

so confused here i will basically be using it for what i said above and it will be for making grooves just no tongue.  Ive got the money to buy the t4 tomorrow but anything bigger the price goes up considerable so i will have to wait.
what are the main differences between the t4 and t5 they are only 50watts of power different

hello james
like your reply.
i'm a kitchen fitter/joiner by trade.
the trend t5 is an industrial rated router where as the t4 is a light trade rated router.
the armature and windings on the t5 are more substantial than the t4.
i'm not being disrespectful to you james saying that bosch are on par with ryobi being a serious diyer.sorry mate you obviously haven't used the bosch blue proffessional range. the boschgreen range is actually better than ryobi.
have you tried the bosch gof 2000?

a couple of questions for james as he has the t4
will it cut a grove in to oak flooring with a cutter with relative ease? and what is the balance like in doing so  and will the smaller base plate cause a problem?

Don't think Bosch owns AEG, but Skil. AEG and Milwaukee are made by the same manufacturer. 
 
Well, if we are talking about Bosch, I guess it's importan to keep the green and the blue ones apart. The green ones are sold as DIY products while the blue ones are sold as of "industrial quality".  A bit surprising if someone would rate the blue ones DIY, even if people's preferences are very different when it comes to tools.
 
Russell, have you considered a Festool OF1010? Expensive? Yes!! But indeed very useful for flooring with the guide rail.

Hey guys sorry if my comments seem a bit strange but i have owned the bosch blue range planer and jigsaw which i really wasn't too impressed with at the mo i own the gc 12 sd which i will say is a great tool i now own the festool ts55, planer and jigsaw which i hope you all should agree is in a completely different class

James, the Festool tools are fantastic, but I've chosen the Bosch GST 135 jigsaw rather than the Festool PS 300, and have not regretted that. (These are loaf models, not the ones with D-shaped handles) Have no experience of the Festool planers. The TS75 plunge saw is amazing.
