You are right, each manufacturer implements Digital ICE a little bit
differently. We analyze each scanner on a case by case basis. They don't
need an infrared sensor, usually their standard CCD works quite well.
Sometimes it is difficult getting the right frequency and quantity of
infrared light from their light source though. We do not provide a chip to
the manufacturer, but usually the micro code embedded on some kind of
on-board memory is different from their standard offering.

Begin Sales Pitch
My experience with the Acer2740S, Benq 2740S or the Umax 270 Plus is that it
has the best price/performance of any film scanner with Digital ICE. I
really like it. It is very effective at removing surface defects from film
scans, and you are already familiar with the effectiveness of the Acer
scanners. The results should be the same, except that in most cases the
surface defects will be gone!

I've read that the ICE feature is added to the scanner by implementing some
hardware components (a chip and an infrared sensor).
Theoretically if the scanner manufacturers buy these components from the
same source (Applied Science Fiction) ICE should perform with the same
results on all scanners, but obviously this is not happening practically.
There are also many versions of this system.
That's why I come back to my initial question: how does the ICE system in
the Scanwit 2740S perform? It is worth it?
My 2420S gives me great results but I started to be fed up by the effort I
put in manually cleaning the images in PS.
Although I always blow the film with a Dust Away can, there is an incredible
amount of particles that remain on film and cannot be seen with the naked
eye.
