Barcode Discount Zebra S4M Review

The key advantage of the S4M is that is sits in between the small, low volume desktop printers and the full-blown industrial units. For business that are printing several thousand labels a week the desktop units are not capable enough while the industrial units are overkill and costly. The S4M is perfect for these situations as they can handle the extra volume without breaking the bank. It is also a great unit when migrating from a desktop printer as it can use the label rolls for both desktop and industrial units. When higher volumes are needed you would go with the Zebra ZM400 though. The S4M is a very flexible, cost effective unit and a great first step into industrial label printing.
