The Reviews

The Porter-Cable 690 LR received very good feedback from consumers. Amazon customers gave this router an average rating of 4.5 stars out of a possible 5 stars. It was very hard to find a negative review. Customers rated this as a high quality and dependable tool. Most users found this router easy to use, well balanced with sufficient power. A plus point for a lot of users was the fact that it can take ½ inch and ¼ inch shank bits. One customer said: “ High quality router with a lot of power. Proven to be one of the best and has many features.” The one negative point that we found was  the position of the on/off switch. A lot of users were not happy with the switch being at the top of the router. This means you have to take one hand off the router to turn it off.


Doesn’t have as many features as some of the other routers we tested, but still a good quality router that provides excellent value for money.
