Axminster Router - AW635R - Anyone Used One?

I'm thinking of upgrading my little Bosch 400w router (yes, I know!) for something with a little more power. The Axminster catalogue advertises a quarter-inch machine (the AW635R) for just 44.94 which seems to be amazing value for money. What's more, I've even used one of these machines and it seems the real deal. Does anyone else have one? Any comments or recommendations? What would the AW127R (quarter-inch and half-inch collets and twice the price) give me in real terms? I'd put myself in the hobby category so whichever machine I buy I'm not likely to be flogging it to death - although as a woodturner I'll almost certainly want to use it in conjunction with a wood lathe.
Thanks in advance.
Kind regards

Axminster don't market their products in North America. On UKWorkshop you should get an answer pretty quickly. Rgds
