I don't think temperatures are really comparable. I set mine to 300, but go much closer in the end. Also, the amount of air controls heat transport.

Yes, several things to take into account:
- Temperature
- Air speed
- Nozzel size.
- Distance from work
- Type of solder
- Mass of component.

I use a high intensity (15,000-30,000 Lux) light to monitor the melting solder for completion feedback.

Whew, I'm surprised that much light doesn't melt the solder  by itself ;)
