I normally get a better quality scan and also get truer colors. I use a film scanner for doing my film. I have a flat bed scanner I use for photos as well as if I need to scan a Document for any reason. Costco normally has some that are pretty good.

There is a difference between the cheap ones and th really good ones. The biggest difference is the overall resolution you can scan at. If you want to be able to print a neg at 8x10, figure you will need to be able to scan it up 2400x3000dpi (since you print normally at 300 dpi thus 300x10 is 3000)

I hope this helps. I also would NOT suggest you you use any form of digital ice when you scan. As it not only will take a lot longer, it will soften the image. I will warn you, when you scan the images, for them to look great, they will need some touch up, so practice your Photoshops CS2 or CS3 skills.
