I've been using the Brady TL2200 for a few months now. Unfortunately I have to use it for my job. Here are the main reasons why I don't like this printer.

1. Cost. It's really expensive - and if you think the printer itself is expensive, chew on this for a while: the labels I print use a spool of adhesive label "paper" (Brady Part #PTL-43-439) that is 50ft long. These spools of labels sell for around $90 a piece, which in my opinion is ridiculously expensive.

2. Ribbon. The ribbon cartridges that this printer uses are 1- also unnecessarily expensive, 2- very inefficient, 3- not recyclable. Each ribbon cartridge costs about $25(Brady Part #R6010). Each cartridge has two spools, one full of unused ribbon which rolls across to the other spool as it gets used for printing. The problem with this method is that the majority of the ribbon itself never actually gets used at all and is wasted. And what's worse - if, like me, you're printing off multiple labels with a gap between each label (for cutting) - the ribbon actually rolls/transfers spools along with the label for the gap. In other words, if you have a 2 inch gap between labels, you are wasting 2" of your ribbon for every gap your labels require. One more thing about the labels - the ribbon is very thin, and I found many spools where the ribbon had wrinkles in it. When you print labels that use wrinkled ribbon, you are left with a very sloppy looking label that has streaks across it.

3. Here's a rundown of my general gripes with the printer itself:
-The on/off button is very difficult to reach. You have to turn the printer upside down to get to it. Why they couldn't have just put this switch on the top or the side of the printer is beyond me.

1. The label make is WAY over priced.
2. The labels are WAY over priced.
3. The ribons are WAY over priced
4. The software to print from a computer is WAY over priced.
5. The printer jams up, skips labels, gets off track regularly so the overpriced labels and ribbons are wasted often.

Verified Purchase
I bought that label printer to replace the existing one in our company which was the same model.
We are very satisfied with the Brady printers

The cost of the Brady labels are so extreme you'll have sticker shock. I was just quoted a price of $775 per box for the TSL2200 label. We've used the TLS thermal printer for years. Though it works well most of the time the price of the replacement labels is just too expensive. Time to find a new labeling system. Due to the price I wouldn't even give this product 1 star.

There are various types of jobs for wire and cable labeling. From my opinion, if you are in the IT industry and need a good label maker, then there are better ones out there for that application where most of the labels you would be printing would be for cables. If all you are going to be labeling is cables (not individual wires) and placards, then go with something more cost effective, particularly with the label cartridges. The Panduit brand LS8 is a good one for that as are some off the shelf printers you can get at Lowes or Home Depot that are really catered to cable labeling and/or large gauge wire.

I'm an EE and work in Industrial Controls and do a lot of machine building where there are hundreds of individual wires to be labeled at various wire gauges (18 AWG - 10 AWG) This is where the TLS2200 printer REALLY out shines any of the others that I have checked out or used, including the Panduit LS8. The TLS2200 is faster at printing for one thing and that is a must when time is money. There are times where I have to print out 50 labels of the same description. That is easily done with the TLS2200 and it does it quickly. The variety of labels that are offered for the TLS2200 are huge. There are labels for anything from large cables to small gauge wire available. One of the biggest selling points for me on the TLS2200 is that it is the only labeler that I have tried or found that offers actual CLOTH labels. That is a must for small wire because it is memory resistant so it will stay put once you put it around the wire. Yes, there are others that say "cloth nylon" but it is NOT cloth. It is nylon, so it will not be memory resistant. At my company, we also have a couple of the Panduit LS8E's, which is Panduit's latest, greatest.

I recently purchased a TLS2200 and am glad I did. Being able to print labels right on the spot has been fantastic, and prove helpful for the other workers in my facility. I'm going to recommend we buy a few more to share within our department; money well spent!
