Like many consumer devices (Nespresso, Gillette, any computer Printer) the cost of the unit is trivial, whereas the cost of the consumables ... labels in this case is not!
After labela developed a fault we set out to find a superior replacement. The Dymo range divides into Personal, Professional, and Industrial ranges. These are for the respective: Sensible, Loads-a-money and Clumsy market segments.
For example, if you considered the 5GBP per Letra Tag cassette was expensive check out the 17GBP Tapes for the Professional printer range!

Whether it is putting IP address labels on your servers, or marking the contents of those mysterious cupboards and boxes in the cellar, believe me a labelling machine is worth so much more than a few cups of coffee.
