This all depends upon your personal taste and you could choose your machines accordingly.

Even when the servo motors are working at full pelt, they are extremely silent and has easier speed control and automatic features as well. There is also speed control in clutch motors which is controlled using a pedal which is mainly used by foot. Clutch motors can get a bit tricky at times also. Domestic Machines has motor encased in the unit head whereas, in the case of industrial machines, there are motors which are mounted separately. The motors are attached to the table for easy access and this can get tricky in domestic machines.
