Dyno5200: What’s it all About?
The Dyno5200 is a high performance printer with an impressive feature set. It uses a laser diode based inkjet system which makes printing faster than any other conventional printer. Its print head is capable of producing up to 500 sheets per minute (ppm) at 300dpi and its resolution is 200 ppi. The print head can produce images up to 3″ x 6″. The printer supports multiple document types including letterhead, business cards, posters and brochures. The printer comes with a standard ribbon cable which allows users to connect the printer directly to their computer. Users can also use the included USB cable to connect the printer via a network connection or they can purchase an Ethernet adapter if they want to access printers from outside your home network.
The Dyno5200 features a large LCD display which displays detailed information such as page count, speed and temperature settings. The printer also includes a built-in SD card slot for easy transfer of files between computers. Users can view and edit documents stored on the printer using Adobe Acrobat Reader software.

Which One Should You Buy?
The DYMO Rhino 5200 is currently selling between $200 and $400. There is also a $100 rebate available for the model if users register with Dymo. This puts the price between $100 and $300 for users who are eligible.
If you want to print only in black and white or do not need to produce images larger than 3″x6″, then the DYMO Rhino 4200 is a better choice because it is a lower cost printer which uses less power.
The DYMO Special Edition Rhino 5500 is a good choice if you need to use ribbons other than the DYMO D1. The 5200 uses only the D1 ribbon cartridge and cannot use any other ribbon.
The DYMO Rhino 5200 is the best choice for people who want to print at the highest speeds possible. It can produce up to 500 sheets per minute, making it twice as fast as its closest competitor, Samsung’s SF-565P. If this function is important to you, then the DYMO Rhino 5200 should be your choice.
