My sentiments, exactly.

While the Polaroid is no longer available, my understanding is that it's the
same basic parts as the Microtek ArtixScan.  When my SS4000 gives up the
ghost, I'm going to have a hard decision to make.  But I'd be tempted to try
out the Microtek just to see.

SS4000 + Vuescan + silver b/w = very happy photographer

Everything on my web site has been scanned with the SS4000/vuescan combo.  I
have a few images that aren't from silver halide film, but only very few.
