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.

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

            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.

              Cartridge Comparison Guide
              • Cartridge Types
              • Ink & Toner Basics
              • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
              Cartridge Type
              Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
              Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
              Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
              Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
              What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
              Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
              Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
              Material Liquid ink Dry powder
              How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
              Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
              Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
              Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
              Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
