I have a PF 30 on my bike and haven't had to change the BB once. I have rode thru deep water, power washed the bike and lots of mud... Never made noise. it has 2000 miles on it. I am changing it soon because its starting to show signs of wear.

Also all you need is this to install it easily - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Wheels-Manufacturing-PR…

If you're the sort of person who buys a bike and keeps it for a bunch of years, then dropping a bunch of cash on a part that may or may not be a noise/maintenance hassle is a big risk. If you get new bikes frequently, it's probably less of an issue.

I avoided press-fit because I always plan on keeping bikes a long time. Pressing shells in and out over and over is going to wear the interface and it will eventually loosen up and creak like a bastard.

Getting a bottom bracket that you can replace the bearings and not the cups is smart.

It would seem most of the issues with press fit are due to tolerance indifference
by frame makers, which can vary from brand to brand or from each batch of
frames to the next.

This fella gives good explanations and examples of such problems with press fit.

Don't like the idea of it since I have the tools for a standard bb.

That being said I replaced a worn out pressfit bb with a new one 2 years ago myself with no special tools. Quiet as a mouse.

Would still rather have a threaded bb but ain't no thing if it's a press fit.
