We use the Brady BMP51 for wire labels. A bit more expensive and less portable. I like the idea of a smaller label maker for when I'm running around doing panel terminations.

I've got this label printer, a Brady BMP51, that really lacks support for anything outside of windows. It's unfortunate because it does a good job but I don't want to dedicate a windows machine to it... so I'd like to write my own driver for basic printing needs.

I've used kroy 5100, Brady bmp21, Brady bmp51, brother pc-9700c, and rhino 6000. The best was the bmp51.
