I was using a large M&R Tri-Light before the light speed. I cut the power on the 6kW unit in half and my exposure was about 20 sec. I found this gave me better control then full power, which would expose the screen in under 7 sec. Now on the light speed, my exposure is 19 sec. For one or two screens, the light speed is faster only because there is no warm up time.

Nice info!

LED exposure units are still relatively new technology, so not that many people would have one yet, as everyone already in the business already had something that worked. Also, I think Lightspeed specializes in just exposure units, whereas many people get all their equipment from one company, like M&R or Vastex, that makes everything from exposure units to conveyor dryers. And only some fraction of those who have bought one will be active members on here. So not yet a large pool to draw from.

And ... many with a DIY nature (or who are just plain cheap!), built their own exposure unit. Most posts on here about exposure units are about the various ways of building your own.
