A-hem... The company you like more? If your preference is toward having an IR cleaning system and you are mainly scanning color films, you will probably prefer the LS-8000. If you scan a lot of real B&W film, you will be spending more time doing spotting because dICE doesn't work on silver based B&W films and the Nikon will tend to emphasize dust and dirt more, which normally you can remove via dICE. The SS120 tends toward diminishing the appearance of dust and dirt on the film, but you will be doing more spotting because it doesn't have dICE, and it cannot fix fungus or major scratching problems, but it treats both B&W and color films equally in this area. Also, you don't need to deal with glass carriers with the SS120 because it offers greater DOF than the Nikon. As to which company will provide greater customer support, that's an unknown until Polaroid's scanner division is sold, which should be happening shortly. In the past, I think most people would agree Polaroid provided better customer support.
