Magic Markers For Cables Are A Revolution?

U-Phase Markers claim they are causing a revolution for marking cables:

Granted, while low-voltage work lacks the life/death urgency that high-voltage work does, marking cables/ labeling them is still a fundamental thing. (Noted in our Cabling Best Practices Guide)

A U-Phase marker costs about about $4 a piece, comes in 11 different colors, and the manufacturer claims it costs less than $0.01 per foot to apply, compared to 9X more using tape.

So do you think cable markers are better than tape? Would you try them out?
