REVIEW: Rhino Industrial 5200

I bought an industrial label writer after a bit of research.
My choose was to buy a RHINO INDUSTRIAL 5200 Labelwriter.
The package includes:
  • Rhino Industrial 5200 Label Maker
  • 3/4" White IND Vinyl Label Cartridge
  • 3/8" White IND Vinyl Label Cartridge
  • User Manual CD-ROM
  • Quick Reference Guide
  • AC Adapter
  • Carry Case
  • Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery

Overall impression.

The value-for-money is high, i bought it for 99 euros on Amazon, considering also that are included 2 cartridges. The only missing feature is the usb connectivity, available on the model 6000 for the double of the price.
From the manufacturer description: "It's just as easy to print module and fixed-length labels, horizontal and vertical wire wraps, terminal and 110 blocks and much more. Print Code 39 and Code 128 barcodes. Access 100+ industry symbols, fractions, and punctuation marks with a few quick keystrokes."

Pros

  1. The Rhino 5200 is a rugged object, and the hard case kit is really well made.
  2. I like the rechargeable battery, because i don't have to buy batteries.
  3. On screen illumination is good, and overall ergonomy is fine, features are easily found without the manual.

Cons

  1. I don't like so much the cutting mechanism, because once cutted the label comes sticky to the side channel plastic and is difficult to extract, in particular with small ones.
  2. The label itself requires clean hands to be peeled and is not always pratical.

Update: Multi line labels.
Rhino 5200 can print multi line labels, depending from label width:

Update: Symbols
Rhino 5200 is equipped with a set of symbols printable near text
