4 out of 5 eggsFlexible label printer

Pros: Prints labels, just as it should. A number of cardriges is available that contain the adhesive strip and the thermal transfer ribbon. Different sizes and colors make this device quite flexible. Also, the label printer allows to flexibly tweak the font (size, width, multiline) and allows to auto-fit the text on a given label size. A well-designed preview function gives a good idea how the final label is going to look like. Battery operation is possible. The generously sized keyboard is easy to operate. Navigation is straightforward, in most of the cases.

Cons: *Labels look OK, but no mre than that. Print quality is about that of a 1990's inkjet printer

* To achieve a uniform look of labels with same size and different amount of text, some tweaking is necessary. It cannot optimize text over two lines

* The package comes with a "starter cartridge" only, and additional cartridges are relatively expensive.

* Each label is preceded by about 1" of waste (for easier cutting). It takes several menu steps to "chain" labels where this waste does not occur. However, with chained labels, manual cutting with scissors is required.

Other Thoughts: I got this printer on sale for a steep discount even over Newegg's regular low price. The cartridge is a solid solution, but if the purchase price of the printer is less than the price of two cartridges, we see the usual scheme where the manufacturers make their money with the supplies.

The printer has no PC connectivity. This is OK for me as the software that comes with some other label printers is usually not helpful.

5 out of 5 eggsBest label maker out there

Pros: Been using this at work for a while and purchased my own for home. Always been trustworthy and has a LOT of options. Prints clear, lasts forever, prints a ton of stuff.

Cons: None...except the options are sometimes in weird and unexpected places sometimes. Takes a bit of getting used to, but do-able. Almost wouldn't mention it except I gotta be objective. :P

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Super easy to use and easy to switch out cartridges to change color of tags.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: My wife is a teacher and started to use it before Christmas. It was supposed to be a Christmas gift. She loves it. I scored.
