I like Dymo printers. NThey've been good little work horses for us, and if you watch the sales, you can pick one up new for about half price.
Dymo LabelWriter 450 is nice and simple.... wide range of label sizes... also no problem printing direct from FileMaker... On a Mac OS X network with printer sharing enabled for it, allows all clients using the FileMaker database to print straight to it.... It's also fast...
Dymo and Zebra are both excellent names in label printers and I have clients who will vouch for either. While Zebra does offer some lower-end models that might compete with Dymo, for the most part Zebra is making more of an industrial strength printer for high-volume printing. I steer clients toward one or the other based on the volume of printing they will do.

I use Dymo for several projects with great success. Have used the 450 and 450 Twin Turbo so that we can print both labels and receipts on continuous feed paper. Also, we're now rolling out the Dymo 4XL to replace our old Zebra printers for high-volume label printing.
WOW! How could I have missed this possiblity! Using the Dymo to print receipts on continuous thermal paper is sheer simplicity. I had been avoiding this aspect of my project because I thought I would have to work with an old style serial printer for a receipt! What a great forum. I pick up nuggets like this all of the time!
