Is the compressor pretty noisy? I've heard some of them are. And that they can't go under the cabinet because they need lots of ventilation. True?

Very true. The sound is comparable to a small refrigerator, so you could disguise it as a drink cabinet. ;)
Mine is in a closet behind the tank above the sump/filter. I removed the closet door to add more ventilation.
