Ahh good, you're addicted. You might enjoy this sub-Reddit, then:

I use red, and it's not that much louder than standard keyboards. If it is to you, you can just add some dampeners which will put it in line with membrane boards.
As for scissor switches, it's all about the feel of the feedback that people like with mechanicals. I don't really like the feedback on laptops.
That all said, I prefer red over anything, because other switches I've used have just been way, way too loud. So loud, someone two rooms away could hear it even with my door closed. That's kind of ridiculous.
