Summary: its good for the money but poor printing quality. It is easy to set up and prints fast and labels are cheap. I cleaned the thermal head but still the print is faded. Not bad for an old model. I would recommend this printer however I would pay the extra cash and by the new model.
Summary: These are excellent shipping label printers. Super reliable and long lasting. It's the only shipping printer we use at our online store. The only feature we dislike about the printer is that the dark cover over the roll of labels is difficult to see through, so it's hard to tell when you're running low on labels without actually opening up the printer lid. Other than that, this is a terrific shipping label printer.
Fantastic price, excellent condition, but Zebra support for Macs lacking

Summary: Was in brand-new condition (refurbished) and worked as soon as I went thru the hoops required to set it up as a mac printer. But still cannot get it to work with the UPS labels, either with Endicia mail Application on the Mac, or UPS online website. But works great with Endicia Mail Application for USPS Postage printing.
Summary: This is the second Zebra 2844 that I've ordered from this seller and it's even nicer than the first one!!! I use these to print labels for my coffee business and they are great. No ribbons, no ink and they are fast and quiet.
Reliable, easy to use and very low cost label printing

Summary: Printers should be easy, but they can often be complicated. Specialty printers such as label printers can be a nightmare, with proprietary printer drivers, high cost & difficult to find proprietary ink or toner, etc. The Zebra LP 2844 is as easy as a printer should be. It's ubiquitous, and most operating systems already have the driver for it, making this a plug-and-go printer for USB on Windows, Mac and (my choice) Linux.
Summary: I was having trouble with getting the printer to work with my POS system. He worked with me on the phone for an hour trying to get it to work. Once we figured out that the printer model wasn't the right one (my fault), he sent the correct one out the next day and was able to get it to work within a couple of days. Great customer service and will use the me again.
