    You could always do the o-ring modification to reduce the noise a bit, the noise is mainly when you bottom out the key and sounds worse on the Cherry Reds Blues and Blacks the Browns are the best for typing.

    I have a Filco Ninja with brown switches on my main rig at home and a membrane kbd at work. In terms of is it worth it? I'm not sure I could sign off an order for one at work but the difference is positive enough that I might just supply my own.

    In terms of noise they can be quiet. you don't need to bottom out the key, contact is made half way.
