filmscanners: Nikon LS40ED - first impressions

Well, I finally got around to picking up my Nikon Coolscan LS40ED this
afternoon, and I'm very pleased with it.

A surprisingly small machine (despite the *huge* cardboard box it came
in!), it's produced some superb results so far. Installation was very
easy - I plugged in the USB cable and XP immediately recognised it
correctly and installed a driver. I installed Nikon Scan 3, and have
already done a few decent scans. I particularly like the batch-scanning
feature - just slipping a film strip in and letting the scanner do the
rest (just what I wanted). 

A couple of questions:

1. For some reason the batch scanning facility defaults to assuming that
each strip has 6 pictures on it. That's fine, except that some of mine
don't - and it generates an error for the 'missing' pics. A minor
annoyance, but not the end of the world. 

2. Is VueScan going to be a better option for scanning than Nikon Scan
3? What's the batch scanning handling like?

Small questions, but all in all I'm very pleased so far. :-)
