BROTHER QL810W Label Printer with Red and Black printing. WiFi, iOS, Android, PC support - £49.99 @ Currys

28
Found 22nd Feb
Available for over £80 from other retailers. (RRP is £192 reported on Amazon/Viking/other sites, while Currys shows the RRP as £99)

I was looking for a label printer for the past couple of days for best value for money, this has just been reduced today, so this was a no brainer.

There are some other good deal going on currently on Brother desktop label printers. so a short comparison on where this printer stands in terms of price and features:

QL501A: very old model but has good ratings. This has a manual cutter. available for £24.99 after 50% off at Ryman.

QL700: Previous generation model with automatic cutter. Available for £39.99 after 50% off at major retailers: Argos/JL/Amazon. This is so far the lowest price as shown by Argos. This does not have WiFi or Androir/iOS support. Also it can't print in 2 colors.

For £10 more over the QL700 (which is at it's best price already), you get better anti-jam technology, 2 color printing, WiFi, and mobile app support with this deal.

This comes with 2 label rolls in the pack, one is with red and black color support. Compatible black on white labels are available for cheap on eBay.

(I din't prefer to go for the similar range from DYMO as they don't come with continous roll support. )

I bought a QL-710W almost a year ago now, and whilst I don't use it very often, I actually get excited every time I need to. There's something oddly satisfying about being to label something.
I'm thinking of building an alexa skill for printing a label. Thought it might be useful for the kitchen as I tend to open stuff up and stick in fridge, but no idea when I opened it.

what is the software like on android and windows ?
Bummer its OOS
Want but have no good excuse to buy. LOL.
It was out of stock an hour ago but now back - just got one
I've just ordered and straight away received an email saying they may not be able to fulfil this order within their usual timeframe. Looks like even they don't know if they have stock or not...
I reviewed the next model up just this morning, at this price it is a great deal. Definitely improves productivity and makes your packages look a lot more professional.
Does anyone know if this works with iZettle on Android as a receipt printer?

Never seen a label printer with WiFi support for this price. Especially Brother. Hot.

I've not found anything cheap that works with iZettle, its a real shame.
If you do find anything, let me know please :-)
Can I get this to work with High Sierra? Can I hell.

As soon as I turn it off, when I come to use it again and turn it back on, it wont print wirelessly and I have to go through the whole set up again.

I've tried static IP addresses etc - simply doesnt work.

I-Zettle have their own printer that costs £270, they don't support 3rd party brands afaik.

I'm a part time developer and I've developed a small app that uses a cheap Bluetooth printer to print receipts.

Working with I-Zettle directly is impossible but I could make something that will open your I-Zettle app and then print a receipt manually after payment goes through (or quicker, print the receipt and then open the I-Zettle app and when payment goes through you can hand the receipt over). It may take 2 or so steps instead of 1 but the Bluetooth Printer I'm using cost £35,(now £77 but it seems a generic brand and other similar versions are £36).

What sort of receipts would you be after? I've already built something basic that may be adaptable free of charge.

The Android software is usable but very simple.
Windows software is more sophisticated and updates are plentiful.
The Windows software is not modern in appearance but it works well, and is robust, stable and very capable.

One annoying thing they make you enter the serial number of the print EACH time you download any software on their web site?!

I got a QL-720NW years ago works well amazing range of labels from tiny for surface mount electronic (ESP8266 boards 1cm x 1cm) through to big labels for large parcels for the post! I used cheap labels from ebay no issue. The cutter is excellent as is the print quality.
Wanted one 10 years ago but stupid money. Now it cheap I don't want one as all letters sent via email
Oos
Ditto on the QL-720W (which I have 2 of due to an ordering error and the price was so good I didn't return it). I use both, in different locations with different media.

Brother's Windows software is quite powerful but also quite dated. I use it to load CSV export files from discogs.com and print peelable labels for records and CD, with QR code etc.

No use for multi-colour, and this is out of stock anyway now, but sounds cute.

For me it would just be something with my company name on, the details of the purchase and the total cost.

some people just like to have a receipt !

Thanks

I've got the QL-570 which has been absolutely brilliant.

Think I paid about £45 for it so this is a good price.
Here's what I have so far, as I say very basic but can be customisable if I knew what was needed:

Screengrab, all fields are customisable.

When you hit that print button the printer prints almost immediately.



I could make that when you hit the print button it will open the I-Zettle App. I think this would be easier than opening the app, making the payment and then having to go back to the app to print.

Finished result, sorry for the quality of pics but they were taking in a hurry and with my test devices:

I developed this over a month ago really to incorporate it into another app but give me a week and I'll improve things.

Edit, first time I've looked into this but I-Zettle has support for the I-Phone, unfortunately I've no intention developing for Apple (I-Phone charge developers $99p/y for the privileged).

I've emailed support to see if they will integrate Android or if there are any steps that I could take to pass details from the above app straight into I-Zettle.

Got the 710 and have also had issues with WiFi.. Yosemite here.. just not seeing the printer. Rebooting the computer and router and waiting usually worked, but certainly disappointing and frustrating when you need it and the software offered no respite.

Despite this, I still love the printer, it’s that good - is happy with cheap as chips aftermarket rolls, print quality is surprisingly decent, and no inks to buy ever! Wonder how that works out for these two colour versions..

I actually am just about to install again on high Sierra I’ll let you know how I get on
