I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

We just got our third Zebra. Quality is fine, setup is easy and usage is pretty simple. We use three because we have three sizes of labels that we use in our warehouse. The oldest one is about 10 years old and still works fine. We're not huge users - probably about 100 labels per printer per day, but we've had no hardware problems with any of them.
