Comfort as well as cutting times have increased due to you can carry more speed without the jarring effect using the ET compared to the mechanical suspension.
I will agree with you that an air ride system is way better than a mechanical, but for the money it has been one hell of an upgrade for me and it did allow for more speed and less cutting times.

Yeah the price of admission is a little steep on the ET but one property I have was VERY taxing on the mechanical suspension and even more so on ME. I couldn't take the abuse anymore and ponied up the money. Honestly the mechanical suspension does work pretty decent and in most cases is adequate . That is until you try the ET and find yourself floating over lawns . I'm not sorry I spent the money now.
