You may want to consider the RH Designs cold light control unit. It would be a huge upgrade from the Metrolux. May want to also grab a backup lamp/tube while they are still available. The 45VXL is a freaking tank. You would be good to go for a looong time.
I had the Metrolux with the sensor, it worked perfect. I only got the Stopclock Vario because I will end up using three of them in a workshop environment and want total consistency and support. While FStop printing is a great upgrade, I would not call the timer a huge upgrade over the Metrolux-II.

The spare bulbs that you can get are only D2-HI version which I have. If you print 4x5 like I do, you will have to even out the annoying falloff with the cold light in some way. I am going to experiment with using ND filter material this weekend...
