I concur completely. I too have an LS-30 which would have been an
unattractive doorstop without VueScan. VueScans support of infrared
cleaning is also a life saver. Despite the flashy new Nikon Scan v3.1
supporting the LS-30 and having some seemingly good features (including
a histograms and jaggy free scans) VueScan still produces better scans.
Now as for that interface... ;-)
PS. I have just recently returned to this list after a long break. Does
anybody know if Ed Hamrick still partakes? If not does anybody have his
email address at hand?

Because it gets me results from my scanner I simply can't get with the
driver. Sure, the interface could be improved, but *any* interface that
gets me better results than Nikonscan and gives me more value for money
from my scanner purchase is very worthwhile. I would have thrown the
out the window long ago if it wasn't for Vuescan. No interface other
vuescan gives me 10 bits per channel, and until recently no other
eliminated the jaggies.
