Barcode Discount Zebra ZM600 Review

Most print applications do not require a label printer with a width beyond 4” wide but in the cases where a larger label is needed the ZM600 provides industrial class quality and speed. Most often you’ll find these printers used in the freight and shipping industries for labeling palates or containers. With the wide set of features and interfaces though, the ZM600 does well in any application that needs a high volume printer. There is a cost jump though for the extra 2” but compared to a laser printer with sheet labels, the ZM600 has a higher level of print quality at a lower total cost of ownership. Many applications do not require such a wide print width but in the cases that do, the ZM600 is the printer to go with.
