I agree with Clint. Dymo makes some nice products that just work. I'm not in the AV industry but when I purchase for our company I pay more for Dymo because I never hear complaints and their products last.

For home use YMMV.

Most label makers print labels that don't stick well to cables and gear. Dymo has it figured out and it's far easier to use than most systems, more flexible, etc… If you use it for a living you don't worry about spending the few extra bucks.

I'm sure these are great items and look like they'd be fun to play around with. I just can't see spending this kinda of money on something that a p-touch or something similar could do for far less money with respect to labeling cables, distribution boxes and other such tasks that might be required in the A/V realm.
