Table is excellant quality
Product is well packaged with good instructions for assembly. My router was not on the list but found that it fit in a very usable place [router is a Ridgid R2910] .Found it to be as functional as it looked in ad.

first router table
This is my first router table and I bought it because of the aluminum top, and its worth. I mounted a 2.25hp router to it and it rivals my shaper in my shop. It has a powerstrip mounted to the inside so you can plug in your shop vac to it. If you hook you vac up to it, when you turn the machine on, the vac fires up as well and catches majority of the shaving... really works well if you're doing this in a small garage. You are able to change bits when the router still mounted, contrairy to what other reviews might say. It took me a while to get used to the micro adjustment. I was used to using a porter cable set up, so it was entirely different, but I've come to like it. The only gripe I have is that I wish the slot for the fingerboard on the table was farther back, I can't fit a full 1x4 in there with the fingerboard attached.

Better than most!
For the price it certainly has a lot of features and durability.
Lets start with the strengths:
-Table size is nice and large.
-Jointing function works well.
-Fence is solid.
-Dust extraction is very decent.
-Plug in for shop vac on table
-Feather boards and guard is nice. (Do not have to unscrew guard all the way to release)
-Plastic inserts will break over time when swapping out.
-Getting the base plate level with the table takes a long time
-Have heard that some tables come warped (mine was fine).
-Must remove router to switch out bits. (this is common with all but the more expensive tables and/or lifts)
-No quick removal of fence. Have to unscrew all the way :(
-The riser/pads that sit between the guards and fence on the screw or between the feather boards and screw always cause a balancing act so they line up right and don't fall out.
