A review of the Dewalt dwp615
Using a router inside the shop makes for a dusty shop. In the past to keep the dust down when using my hand held trim or plunge router I would roll the projects out of the shop to avoid the mess. While this is fine in good weather, when it gets cold or rains it’s not an option so I use the tool inside and clean up the mess afterwards.

I tested them both with cedar because it is a wood that makes the most dust in my shop.
Installation was easier than expected and fit into both bases.
Using the trim base I was able to use the round over bit without any issues to achieve a clean cut and eliminate 85-90% of the dust.
I did find the unit attached to the plunge base would not allow round over bits to extend deep enough to make a good cut, but with a straight bit it works great.
I would say this is a successful purchase and has eliminated the majority of the dust put out by the router.
