There are different packaging options and the price is cheaper with labels (by £30?!)

cant really comment about the price, but the unit is really excellent, bought it when it was mega cheap from dymo and use it all the time for labels e.g ebay. the only annoying thing which if someone has a fix for (apart from breaking it or sticking something over it) is you cant turn the blue LED off on the front even your pc is powered off.

Heat added
Even got a £2.30 discount perhaps through buying it a a "student" with the NUS card I got via HUKD

Agree... relentless little machine....

Says two year guarantee on Dymo website too...

how does this compare to the Brother QL710 that I got a while ago from these very forums....I realise this gets more labels as standard but after cutback they are about the same price and the Brother printer has been brilliant

I unplug mine and the blue light fades into nothing!

Not sure I need this but I like it

labels on Christmas cards?
labelling freezer food?
organising your filing?

a few non-business/non-children related ideas!

This label printer is not wireless, which may be a bit limiting for some.
I've got the Turbo version of it, and it's fine, but thinking about replacing it with a Brother wireless one.
Also the Brother one works from rolls of label which it cuts to size - should save some of the changing of label rolls you have to do with the Brother.

If Dymo have any sense, they'll be discontinuing this one shortly.

Mine's already arrived so will try asap

I've had one of these for years. They are superb!

There's an option in your BIOS on your laptop/desktop to stop powering the USB ports if the laptop/desktop is powered off. Go through the settings and you should find it, once you do, disable it and then you won't have to put up with the blue light.

I still prefer the old stye Dymo label writers:

Do these use ink..?

No. Thermal labels.

I read this as 'with 450 free rolls of labels' - that would have been a bargain!

They fade out over time, even quicker if you tape them. (Thermal not ink)
Freezer: they won't stay sticky will come off under freezing temperatures.

Remember getting this with labels for like a tenner 2-3 years back.

will this work with lion Mac?

it does say usable on different systems.

you can buy labels for different uses eg waterproof but I don't think this one takes them...

yes, Mac OS® X 10.5 or later - Intel® only - see below link

Really is excellent, although they make their money from extra labels - 1000 labels costs about £14 currently.

Sounds better : )

Would this work using a Chromebook?

If not, could someone suggest a labelwriter for infrequent use. I probably print 20-30 small rectangular labels a year that go on the inside of a tennis racquet ie something like this.

3 or 4 lines of thin text on top of each other would probably be sufficient. If not, I could probably get away with 2-3 lines. The smaller the label, the better.

Ebuyer has same item for £44.99

Brilliant item, cheap labels found on ebay and do work. broke mine like an idiot when a label jammed, too heavy handed. probably buy another at this price.

£44.99 plus cheapest postage option at £4.18 = £49.17

Sorry to hijack the thread but any links for these used to use the original ones back in the 70's (?) I think as a kid ?

BTW my Dymo label printer arrived and the other half is asking if it can print name labels to put inside kids clothes..does anyone know?

my neighbour uses the original 3-d type still!

and no, different labels and machine would be needed for labels suitable for clothing.

Thanks for the prompt reply

Cure early cheaper on ebuyer.

Bad typo.
Currently cheaper on ebuyer

Great machine though the software is a bit clunky and the cables quite intrusive. Don't buy cheap labels of the bay, they are terrible and the font practically rubs off

I've had no issues with ebay compatibles. They are just standard thermal labels, not something you can screw up easily :P

but this 4 years ago at the same price, i love this little printer. i had a brother but the media was so expensive, this little baby takes generic thermal rolls and they are so cheap i use it for everything.

Can anyone recommend a wireless label printer?

No they're not if you include postage;)

Never had a problem with ebay labels.

Would recommend these.
I use it for business (sorry it's a ebay one) and print all my address labels with it as there is a plugin for ms excel so you select all the addresses and it prints them in one go (along with a nice image and the royal mail ppi stamp). Couldn't do without it really now.

My only annoyance is if doing the labels individually as it goes to print the second label it sometimes gets jammed as it pulls the first label in and that gets caught in the mechanism. So you really have to tare each one off as you do it.

I ordered one yesterday for £39.60. I'm glad I did.
