    Yeah Hiper's seem to be pretty good and fairly well thought of, I seem to recall some people mentioning the noise but overall pretty decent. I didn't mention them as they are on the wrong side of your budget :)

    Certainly for most people Hiper's do have a tendancy to be noisy, especially as they age or under load. The Tagan's are very nice and competely silent.
