Yes.  I've had one a few weeks.  I'm really happy with my purchase so far.

No, it does not.  Keep in mind that ICE is useless for silver halide film.
If you don't do your own processing, you'll probably want a scanner with an
IR channel for removing dust and scratches.  Now that I'm doing my own
processing, scanning is a breeze in that I don't have dust and scratches to
worry about.  I have extremely little cleanup work in Photoshop.  Tweak a
curve, and then I'm good to go.
