Used on a acoustic floor tom, it feels pretty good and I'd say very close to an actual head. (preference and depends on tuning)
Volume wise it's definitely quieter than a acoustic head, however, we don't use it for volume reasons, we use it because we trigger all drum shells (through DDrum DDTI) and trigger drum software (GGD,Drumforge,SSD, etc)
It's important to understand that you will still have the impact noise, it's still a 16" tom that you're bashing your sticks in! So, unless you've got a floating floor (be it a podium or the room itself) your neighbor will still hear the thud.
Either way, this wasn't a concern in our studio, we purely don't want to have shell sounds/bleed in the overhead/spot mics and therefore wanted a mesh head solution. The Remo single ply mesh head does the job very well and so far it seems to last for quite some time. You'll most likely have to tune the head a little tighter than you'd tune your acoustic head.
If you leave your resonance heads on, you'll still get some tone/pitch, or if you take the reso heads off, it'll be the quietest solution.
Even though they seem to last for quite some time and for toms I'd say the single ply versions should be enough, for kick and snare however I'd have a look at a 2-ply version if you're in the rock/metal area ;-)
I've tryed many many ways to play the drums where I live (block of flats). This thing mounted in place of a batter head didn't just give the possibility to study whenever I wanted, but also to make HOME RECORDING with good results.
