The Coolscan III was a joy to use, for sure. I'd like to stick with the
convenience and features of the Nikons. Thanks for the rec. I did kill the
Coolscan III myself by trying to take it apart. I got to about 2/3 of the
way through the process when I came upon some philips head screws that would
not come out. I broke the tips off of every small screwdriver in the house
before eventually stripping the screw head completely. Insane. The newer
models look like they are easier to get into

Thanks again!

Stick with the Nikons. Used LS-40's go for $300-$375.
LS-V succeeded it.
If one is a bit handy, it's reasonably simple to clean the mirror:
