I have the acme version, only used for vertical positioning (not much movement needed). As far as I understand, the ball screw is much more silent, however some 50% costlier.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I have one on the 3.4m but it must be coming up to 20 years old. It is very noisy.

Somewhere in the shed I have the gearbox of another which I think runs off 24V and has an optical (possibly Hall effect) sensor inside.
