I use Ortofon S-120 cartridges, set up correctly, on a pair of 1210s, and the vinyl wear is minimal and the sound quality fantastic. Have to admit the sound of the motor on a direct drive turntable isn't something I've heard picked up, but I've heard many audiophiles complain about it and swear by a belt driven deck.
