Go with the Bosch, it is so quiet - it is actually shocking how quiet it is. Ours projects a little light onto the floor to indicate it is running. It cleans dishes incredibly well - and I am frighteningly obsessed with the 3rd rack for silverware. Yes you have to clean out the filter and trap occasionally - and for us, that is when it does take on a bit of a smell. But for the most part, It is worth the price!
