All your statements were mentioned once or more by one or more people over the past 6 months. They usually were accompanied by statements that some of the effects are not happening that often or haven't occured at all. There were also solutions mentioned and made for some of the problems. I'm a happy owner of the Nikon 8000ED and I know at least two other owners (friends) that consider it a good scanner. There have been enough statements by owners on this list that they were happy with the scanner. You exaggerated the problems, denied the Nikon's advantages, and favoured the Polaroid 120 and that all based on experience of others while you had no first hand experience of both scanners. The Polaroid 120 must be a good scanner (no first hand experience here) but I do not consider the Nikon 8000 ED a bad scanner. This discussion isn't what William asked for but it isn't practical for me in Europe to do a test scan for him.
