It depends on a few factors... altitude, speed, engine type, and the weather...
the plane is a good bird to fly in... offers full size seats (albeit they don't "recline", they are at a good angle). They are also one of the few commuter planes that offer ALL of the following: overhead bins, tray tables, arm rest on each side of the seat, individual air / light controls, and oxygen masks that drop from the ceiling. The plane also has a full galley and lavatory.
Sometimes the older birds do make sounds and are a bit louder, it's bearable and not overly annoying. Row 8 (on the right) offers the best legroom of any seat imagineable (unless you are flying in a flying-bed on United or BA!)

The one and only (and will remain so) time I flew on a Brasilia, it was not enjoyable. While not as loud as I expected, the plane has a tendency to yaw when the gear is down, so takeoff and landing are really interesting. Add to this the fact we had to fly through some storms, so we were bouncing up and down like a ball for most of the flight. I am not one of those fans of the Brasilia.

I flew once from Fresno to LAX with Skywest and it was quite nice, the plane didn't really go to high ( it's just one hour trip ) but it went smoth and the noise was a little bit higher then the jets but no really a big deal, I found out for example the ATR42 is noisier then the EMB120. The configuration is 2-1 ( like the EMB145 ) but all went ok, the final landing was fantastic because we could actually see LAX airport shortly before we turned to the final aproach.
Regards and good trip!
