Zebra ZD520 Reviews

POSGuys Rating:

Middle product of the desktop printer lines, the ZD500 is slightly faster than the ZD400 but with some advanced features like a moveable label sensor and cutter or dispensor add-ons.

It is a similar speed as the older GX420 and GX430 but has a much better user interface with a monochrome LCD screen and ten button menu.
