What exercise bike should I purchase?

I've decided now's the time to start exercising seriously again. Joining a gym is out of the question, as I work two jobs and go to University but I could exercise at home, structuring the time as study breaks.
Does anyone have experience with home exercise bikes? I've read a few reviews and it seems that a Life Fitness 9500HRT Lifecycle
would be suitable.
The price doesn't scare me as long as its well built and needs little (or preferably zero) maintenance. I'm open to alternatives; I've read good things about Schwinns, which cost much less.
Also, how much noise will one of these make? I'll be using it in a flat with folks living underneath me. Finally, for aerobic workouts and general destressing, am I better off purchasing a treadmill?
