I would describe a V210 as louder than a DL145 G2, as the latter seems 
to have much better temperature control and while the V210 was always at 
full blast, the DL145 usually isn't.

Also, a V240 is a good bit quieter than a V210.  I only bought the V240 
because it was cheaper on the day I was ordering, but it turns out that 
it a much nicer choice as well.
