I was not referring to your post at all. You didn't mention anything about width so why would I tie you to it. The quotes I used are from 2 other posts. As for the rest, I was referring to posts from people who hadn't been on a Q400 or were saying things such as that the ATR or Saab are quieter, when they are factually not. At least N730AS has had trips on Horizon's Q400 and CRJ700s.
The only 3 things that the CRJ has going for it is that it doesn't have props, it is faster, and it has a higher service ceiling. On the other hand, the CRJ has a lower cabin height and narrower floor. And ride wise there is very little difference as the Q400 has very similar wing loading. In fact, a Q400 with more pax and fuel than a CRJ will ride through turbulence better. So ride quality depends on each trip's "luck"... take-off weight and weather. And noise wise, the Q400 cabin is actually quieter than the CRJ although it does have slightly more vibration. But if you sit at the rear of a CRJ than there is virtually no difference vibration wise. Those are facts.
As you say, at least you tried both. However, it is impossible to argue against subjective beliefs and pax preference and that is why turboprops are going the way of the dinos.
