    I have a Dymo Labelwriter 450 Turbo for printing shipping labels and postage stamps, and a Brother P-Touch 2700. Both work flawlessly with my Macs.

    Good question. I have a Dymo 350 Turbo that I use for address labels, and a Zebra 2844 for shipping labels. The Dymo was no problem, the Zebra took some tweaking. I'd like a little label printer like the Brother PT-1230 for small laminated labels, they'll be more durable than the thermals I get from my Dymo, but Brother only supports that on Windows. The P-Touch 2700 Mr. McMac uses looks nice but a bit bulky and expensive.

    The Brother and Seiko Business labellers both work well in my experience (10.6 to 10.8.3), lots of options for label sizes/types. We use mainly the SII SLP 440 and 450 with high levels of use without any problems. We have not had one break in over three years for some. The labels are not that cheap and the SII and Dymo labels seem to swap as to which is the cheapest. The software is fairly clunky, but we have designed labels in our database application and in that context we are in good control of the content and great results. These are black & white (thermal) printers.
