I purchased that router combo kit from Lowes on clearence some time ago. Paid about the same price. Use it in my router table and its been a solid addition to the shop. The above table height adjustment in the base has been great. Not as nice as an expensive lift I am sure... but its worked great so far !
Of the 8 routers I've owned, and the 11 or so I've used, the FT1700 is my favorite table router for most tasks....the MW5625 is pretty nice for beasty jobs, but those above table bit changes should be law.
