I bought a Mag 850 the other day. I just couldn't afford a fluid @ almost double the price @ the LBS...and it is quiet.
Almost immediately I realized that I could adjust my handlebars and seat to a slightly better position. This made a big difference in riding posture, although I don't necessarily keep my hands on the bars while training, I can tell it'll make a big difference in the spring.
Meaning, I live alone and it's sometimes diffecult to adjust things; or, remember how you'd like to make adjustments when you get home for a comfortable ride.
This is the best investment I've made in awhile.
And the Brooks should be broken in w/ a new rear tire comes spring
