Dan,
1. The Polaroid scanners do have dust and scratch removal in Insight
although not quite as effective as current IR technology..
2. Polaroid currently has a new software only patent pending technology for
dust and scratch in Beta test. Results so far have been more than
encouraging.
3. The cool cathode diffuse light source shows considerably less dust than a
led/calumniated light source. You will have less dust showing to clean !
4. The cold cathode/diffuse light source allows the Polaroid scanners to use
lenses with greater depth of field for better focus across the film.
5.  If your film is reasonably clean, manually cleaning with air and an
antistatic brush can be faster than the extra time IR based cleaning takes.
6. Polaroid scanners get the maximum shadow detail in a single pass and do
not need, or more important, require multi-scanning to get the maximum
shadow detail
7. Polaroid scanners do artifact free scanning at its maximum throughput.
8. If your film is reasonably clean and you want to get all the shadow
detail scanning on a  Polaroid scanner can take far less time than on a LED
based scanner.
9. I may be slightly prejudice but I think Polaroid has the best reputation
for supporting their scanners and customers and being pro-active to fixing
quality or functionality issues as they arise.

Thanks
David

  I beleive the consensus is the Coolscans are optically inferior only
because of "depth-of-focus" issues ... that is, if your films are flat,
there is very little difference.

  Also note, the Polaroids are not capable of IR scanning, so if you need
dust removal, the issue of "optically superior" is almost moot.  You might
consider the Canon FS4000, but its IR scan is accomplished with a 2nd pass,
thus there are registration issues.

  I hope to be corrected, but there doesn't seem to be a "best of both
worlds" alternative yet.

cheerios ... shAf  :o)

I have a lot of Kodachromes, and for that reason alone prefer the Polaroids.
Perhaps the Minolta Multi Pro Dual has the combination of a standard light
source and ICE?
