I've got a fairly similar one. Mine is wireless network version and it has worked flawlessly for over 4 years. 3rd party replacement rolls work with no issues

I've owned this and sold it on to upgrade to the wireless version which I paid the same for a good few year back


Both are great machines which never need ink
Bought from Argos at the same price yesterday - haven't had time to take it out the box and try yet. Ebay seems to be the place to get the rolls unless you want the Brother branded ones.
Love mine have this and ql-570 I think it is use loads everyday. Really cheap labels on eBay and even cheaper in bulk. And the 700 is quick.

I once bought some from eBay and the black oblongs were on the wrong side so they didn't work. I rewound them and all ok. The link from Amazon is what I use exclusively now for over 3 years. I messaged them prior to get confirmation that the oblongs were on the correct side. Whilst I know there's a really high chance I just bought a problematical rogue lot, I'm perfectly happy with getting a regular 3rd party grade now


The only criticism I have of the machine is that I needed blue coloured labels and I couldn't find any at the time. I bought a Dymo and use that specifically for 1 job

Can this be used to print from a mobile phone?
I have this one. I don't have much experience with thermal label printers, so I don't have anything to compare it to. However, it's really easy to use, mostly plug and play. It's very quick and I've never had any bother so far.

A few things to note. If you're wanting this to send pre-paid Royal mail postage via eBay for instance, the labels aren't big enough. You need 4" x 6" (from memory). Also, it's not wireless.

Assuming you're OK with just printing addresses (for postage) or other general uses, then it's a pretty good printer.

Although if any one has experience with a decent wireless 4x6 thermal printer, that would be much appreciated. Thinking about upgrading so I can print postage labels direct from eBay (save me queuing!) Any tips?

I've seen the Zebra models recommended. Don't think I can justify the costs at this stage, maybe when I'm selling a lot more! I'd be happy with paying double the price of the QL-700 for something with larger labels (wireless is a bonus). But the GK420d is £259.99 on Amazon and at least £200+ most other places. Bit out of my budget ATM

Thanks for the tip, I'll look into them a bit more. I'm mostly sending large letters under 100g, so I believe Royal Mail is still my best bet currently. Especially for convienance
This might sound stupid but can you print eBay labels for Royal Mail ? Or do you know which printer could do that ? Apart from the normal ones of course

You need the QL710W or QL720NW for this.
Can only echo positive sentiments rolls are cheap, doesn’t require ink and it’s been faultless.

Being thermal printed the stickers will fade in direct sunlight.

Set up a camelcamelcamel price alert for the printer rolls on amazon. They often go on offer
I thought I typed this yesterday.
I have the 800 version from Cartridge People (£49 IIRC) which also does the red and black paper version so you can print in red (ideal for Fragile etc), though the black looks more purple.

Has anybody found an easy way to print the basid Paypal (Ebay) address? At the moment I have to copy it, open the program, paste, centre it, resize the font etc. Was considering trying automation software if nobody has a better way.
Three things, if anyone can help I'd be very grateful.
I return alot of stuff to amazon, can this print those labels?
In an ideal world I would like to print those and straight from my mobile, any suggestions?
Also, can you get sticky labels that stick directly on to packages?
