I use mine when working from home and in the office, haven't had any complaints about the noise, think it probably sounds worse to the user than co-workers I also like the fact that it hasn't got a numbers pad, makes it smaller to transport, easier to centralize when I work with it on my knee, also more ergonomic because I don't have to move my hand as far from keyboard to mouse. If you don't do a lot of number crunching and you've never used a keyboard without number pad, you should give it a try :)
£25 after the code now
I've got one of these, its a great keyboard for the money. Surprisingly well built, even has a metal base in fact this could save your life when the zombie apocalypse hits and you don't have a snooker cue to had (and Queen on the radio) XD Only downside It's rather loud, so not great for an open plan office or hangovers!!!
Happy with mine, but certainly wouldn't use it around others as it is very loud. The keycaps are very cheaply printed, the markings will vanish after just a few weeks use. I believe they are cherry keycap compatible so they can be replaced.
I just realised this and cancelled my order. Shame about that, I was looking forward to having one :(
