You didn’t mention if you were talking about a large or small router plane–I’m assuming you are referring to the large.
One of the things that sold me on the Veritas router was the ability to configure it as both closed and open (or bullnose, as they describe it) throat, and even “laterally” if that is your thing. With Lie-Nielsen, there is a separate tool for open and closed throat.
I don’t know if this is *that* important, but that configurability added value for me. As I often say, Veritas seems to offer the biggest bang for the buck.
