Does the job, paltry linux support

Desktop thermal transfer printer with UPS Worldship support. These things are reliable, printed several labels a week for a few years after buying it used.

Linux support is frustating but completely fixable. The printer will print out of the box with Zebra ZPL print driver. The prints will look poor and barcodes will be terrible and likely unreadable. The fix is to use the CenterOfPixel option when printing :
lpr -P printer -o CenterOfPixel pathtofile.
Prints will look just like they do on Windows. This should be possible to add as default in the .ppd file in /etc/cups/ppd for this printer, but it hasn’t worked for me yet.

Verdict

Printer is dead reliable, points off for poor linux support.
