Hi Bruce,

Did you ever get any feedback on cassette printers?  I am interested in hearing what others have to say, too.  I have checked out a couple of them.  We tried the Shandon but I found it too hard to move around on the screen and get it to print what I wanted it to quickly.  The accession numbers did not count up automatically so you had to manually enter the number each time.  I was not able to batch-print cassettes.  We tried the TBS Shurmark Plus and I absolutely loved the touch-screen and the ability to move around on the screen.  Unfortunately, it took too long for the cassettes to print and two minutes for the ink to dry.  That won't work for us.  I had the brand new Sakura in this week, and I have mixed feelings.  It is also cumbersome to move around on the screen but the print on the cassettes looks beautiful.  Needless to say, I haven't fallen in love with any one labeler yet.

At our lab, we are looking into the slides and cassettes printer/labeler.
Can anyone give me any advise or suggestion?
I know that Sakura and Leica make them.  Is there any other one?  Pros and
Cons between the two would be nice?

Thanks in advance,
