I had Silverfast for the Nikon LS-2000 but after I got the LS-4000 and 
worked with Nikon 3.1 for a few days, I decided not to buy the Silverfast 
for the 4000.  If you take the time to learn the 3.1, it can do everything 
that Silverfast can do.  If you want to batch scan, which I always do, you 
have to pay extra for the ability to batch scan with Silverfast.  The cost 
of their software is ridiculous.  Nikon 3.1 is easy to use if you read the 
manual and it works great.
