I was in a similar situation when I upgraded my solar a few months ago.  I found an Outback controller for $300 less than Victron.  I went with the Outback and I am happy with it.  Many recommended the Victron and it has some nice features but not worth the extra $$ for me.

Have two Victron solar controllers, really like the bluetooth, am sick of running wires, Nice to open app on phone and adjusting and reading values. Had a shading issue from trees the other day, got a long pole and moved the branches aside and could see the difference, knew which ones to trim.

The Outback we have has a fan and some complaints can be found on the internet.  I put ours in the front storage compartment and  the only time I hear it is when I am retrieving things from that cabinet.  It is a not an issue for us but our system is only 1260 watts.  We have been boondocking most of the summer in the mountains of Colorado.  Rarely do we need air conditioning so our generator usage is minimal.  Maybe a few minutes up to an hour a week.
