Are we certain that the 8000 ED and/or the LS-120 use 
mirrors?  Where does this information come from?

This was commonly "reported" to be the case on some 
other scanners.  I can tell you that it is categorically 
not true for the Microtek 35t+ and the SprintScan Plus -- 
no mirrors in either of those; the both use the 
identical optical/mechanical bench.
