We have had good luck with the Rhino series of labelers by Dymo.  There
are a lot of different label types and the cost of the labels is pretty
reasonable.  We bought ours through Grainger supply.  There are a lot of
Grainger stores around here and we can usually pick them up out of stock
or we can buy them from CDW as well.  We also have the Brady and
personally I like the Dymo better.

The BMP21 has kinda sucky cable labels, IMO.

I bought the Brady BMP21 handheld labeler from Frys about a month ago.
It takes 6x AA batteries i believe. You can buy the power cable and 
case for it if you want. I love it so far.

Hey everyone,

Many moons ago I worked in a place where we had a Brady LS2000 wire

labeler.  So long as the supplies were fresh it was great.

In the storage unit I have a Brady TLS2200.  Supplies are 
expensive, but it works reasonably well.  Unfortunately the battery

is shot (gotta replace that).

It seems to me that as cheap as the Brother P-Touch type labelers 
have gotten that there might be some product by 
(Brady|Dymo|Brother|etc) that everyone uses and recommends these 
days which is (a) cheap enough that they can be deployed en masse 
rather than treated as a scarce resource, (b) hopefully runs on 
standard (such as AAA) battery types, and (c) has reasonably priced

Labeling cables is mostly what I'm interested in.  The el-cheapo 
p-touch seems adequate to putting hostnames on machines.


P-Touch with TZe tapes for me. I have stuff on the roof labeled with

TZe tape and they still look new after about a year of exposure
I'm in the high desert.
