    Can anyone tell me where to get a copy of this review??? Barnes and Noble, who just hosted their B&N Makerfaire with Make Magazine, has no idea when I can get a copy. Is there an on line link I can use to order one.
    I recommend printers to lots of people and I'd like to have the latest review.

    I think it's just coming out to subscribers now, and is due to be on most shelves by the end of November. This guide like every year is actually just the winter issue of Make, and given that the current issue is on shelves until the 23, I would think it would be available then....still I cherck every day hahaha

    Yes and no, a lot of the printers have been from american manufactuers, but others such as the Witbox, Felix, BEE, LeapFrog and even Wanhau make it into the reviews. From what I've seen through pics and tweets of the review process, it's a much larger spectrum of printers this year, and also including laser cutters, and desktop CNC such as Shopbot, Carvey and Shapeoko too.

    I think if you're a small manufacturer your chances are greater if you're in northern america. Most big manufacturers seem to be there.

    Agreed. I'd be curious to see what the shipped units numbers are for most manufacturers. Are we looking at tens of thousands for say Printrbot, or hundreds of units for others...
