- Vincent Oliver's site. Good to excellent reviews of various photographic equipment from printers to scanners to software. Review format is often interactive over many days and site visitors can ask questions and make suggestions. Perhaps because new printers and scanners have been slow to come on the market, there is much less activity on this site than in the past. But if you're interested in a new printer or scanner, check to see if the equipment you're interested in has been reviewed.
