Scanner light sources- LED versus Cold cathode

Sorry for another scanner question but...

Does anyone known if the LED light source of the Epson V800/850 makes any noticeable difference from the Cold Cathode source of the V700/750. Apart that is from the much faster "warm up" time.

Or to put it another way which has an emitted spectrum that will be more suitable for scanning negative 120 and 4x5 film?
