I don't agree it's loud... it took me 10 secs to work out the difference 
between the two panels!! (from a standing start).

However, while I slightly prefer the toggle to the checkbox, I would 
prefer the toggle replacing the checkbox directly. Scanning vertically 
through the list of "random" widgets on the right hand side to find the 
"on" and "off" of the toggles is too hard. It is slightly easier on the 
left because there are already visual cues saying where to look.

One reason I prefer the toggle to the checkbox is that it is different 
in appearance to the checkbox, so I can visually scan for "toggle" and 
not be distracted by other checkboxes.

I agree it is important to align them...
