I didn't time it so I can't answer that.  BTW, the Nikon (as I understand
it) always scans at max res (4000dpi), then downsamples.  So it's possible a
4000 dpi scan would take less time to scan, but of course longer in PS.

The outer case is a bit "consumer electronics", yes.  But I notice there
doesn't seem to be a lot of plastic, which can be a problem with CCD
scanners due to hazing of the mirrors due to outgassing.  The mechanism
itself seems quite solid with good precision however, as near as one can
tell those things by listening:)
