Great labeler - lousy label tape

We purchased the 5200 labeler hard case kit a couple weeks ago. I spent most of last week labeling cables in our datacenter. I'm an IT professional and work for an ISP level network service provider. So our datacenter is big and there are a million cables. Without labels it is next to impossible to figure out what is what.

This is where the 5200 series labeler really shines. It has preconfigured label layouts for dozens of things. I almost always used the Cat X format, which is a simple label that wraps around a cable with your text repeated several times, so it is viewable from all angles.

For labeling cables, I recommend the 3/4" label tape. Anything smaller, and you won't be able to read the labels nor fit on the label what it needs to say. In fact, if they made a 1" or larger label tape, I would use that instead. The wider the better.

For the front panels of equipment (servers and routers and such) I recommend the 3/8" label tape. It is large enough to read (when you only use single lines of text) yet narrow enough to find places on the fronts of servers that are covered in ventilation holes and grilles.

There are a couple different kinds of label tape. The first cartridge that I used was a laminated plastic, black print on white shiny tape. This make really great labels, which were easy to read, and the print did not rub off on my fingers while applying the label. However, I noticed that after a day or two of being stuck to a cable hanging behind a server blowing hot air on it 24/7, the labels would start to unwrap and peel off. That's no good!

The second label tape type that I tried was more like a fabric material. I was a little bit stretchy and seems to stick to the cables better. BUT the printing on the fabric is much lighter and harder to read, and the print would rub off on my fingers while I applied the label, further reducing the readability. That's no good either!

One good thing about the label tape is that the backing is split in two down the center. This makes getting the backing off the label quick and easy - even if it is a two-handed job. Other labelers that I've used had one piece backing and it was a nightmare to get it off.

All in all, I have to give the labeler 4.5 stars and the label tape 2 stars. The label tape is really the weak point here.

I don't know what case the other reviewer got, but the case that I got as part of the kit can hold about 8 label tape cartridges, and has a special spot for the charger and the quick reference guide. I didn't see a spot for a full blown 8.5" by 11" printed manual, but then again, I didn't need one.

Suggestions for DYMO to improve:
Include in the quick reference guide a picture of a sample of each of the various label formats. I wasted a lot of label tape trying different formats to find what I wanted.
Include a lanyard or belt hook. It is very hard to use a labeler and apply the labels when you have nowhere to sit the labeler (like behind a rack of equipment that is in use).

On the surface this seemed like the perfect label maker. For quite a while I was looking for an excuse to buy one. After putting up with the cutter errors on my existing printer, I decided to buy one for a larger job. It lived up to all the hype with quick formatting of labels and general ease of use. Unfortunately it's not possible to print fixed-length labels without doing some manual trimming with scissors. This applies to almost every label format. For example, when printing panel labels, labeling 2 ports per label, if you're labeling 200 ports, that's 100 labels you have to manually trim with scissors. With my old printer, it would pause and cut in the appropriate place between labels. The Rhino printers leave a leader at EVERRY CUT that you must trim manually. This is not user error either, as I confirmed with tech support, as well as their engineering department (via a trade show rep) that this is in fact how the printers work. I would definitely NOT buy another one.

Lots of great features, mechanical issues

By TelecomGuy

from Spokane, WA, United States

Comments about Dymo Rhino 5200 Label Maker Kit:

I've had two of these units, the first one lasted for about 8 months and then the cutter jammed and would not recover. Sent it in for warranty, got a replacement in about two weeks. Had the replacement for 5 months and the cutter jammed (again), so now I'm out all the money I spent on tape cartridges. Purchased a similar competitors model (manual cutter) and find it works more consistently. I need a unit that I can rely on for my day to day work in complex communications sites. If Dymo would make a Rhino 6000 with a manual cutter (I need the 1" tape size) I would certainly get another one but the motorized cutter cannot be relied on.

    Comments about Dymo Rhino 5200 Label Maker Kit:

    I'm a low-voltage custom installer and have gone through two of these 6000's at a rate of about one per year. The cutter screws up, or doesn't feed properly. I wish they would make one at a higher price point that would be more reliable. Also, everyone knows an "asdf" keyboard would be faster.

    Does not perform as advertised

    By JoeUser

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Dymo Rhino 5200 Label Maker Kit:

    We purchased a Rhino 6000 kit in order to label the networking components for a new residential building. The unit was tested prior to use, and once on mains power, was found to compentantly print legible labels on self-laminating tapes. However, once the unit was brought to the site, where mains power was not available, it was found to not perform as advertised - reliably printing labels on-site. The labeller must remain on mains power in order to print clear labels, something which was not possible at the time. We would not recommend this item to others.

    Just getting started, found switching between general /wire/cable without re-typing the label such a time saver and then the sequential labels a big help too.

    As a matter of fact I may sell it to a friend so I can get the 6200.

          Durable, time sensitive, makes every job site that much easier to complete and make that much more of a WOW impression on the client, this product is what separates you form the other guys. My advise, get this product, well on second hand don't, I want to keep my advantage over my competition as long as I can. No really, all joking aside this is a great product and the kit and storage case make it all the more durable and professional looking, clients are looking at us in a whole new light and that means more revenue for us. Thank you Dymo

            The labeler is good, but the software will not run on Vista x64. Also, it is near impossible to contact Technical Support at Dymo, and when you manage to, they are indifferent and arrogant.
