We want to pass on our savings to our customers, so we've lowered the price of this item. However, since our price is now below the manufacturer's suggested retail price, we are restricted by the manufacturer from showing the price right away.
We use this for library book spine labels and for address labels for envelopes. Could not ask for better convenience or ease of use. Easy to switch out the labels to use a different size. We work in a very fast-paced media center and it has made our life so much easier to create a spine label on the fly or an address label to mail something quickly.
Got 450 to print labels 2-5/16x4" form MSAccess. After getting the bugs out of the access program Labels print great. With Access you have to remove your header and footer on your report page so that the printer doesn't print more than one label at a time.
Since it is always on using electricity- you have to always be plugging in and out the plug from the machine, which is a hassel. Cost is the only reason I see Dymo not putting a on/off switch on the machine. What do you think?
Tried to use in industrial clean room environment but labels smudge/fade/discolor if alcohol or other liquids are applied. Only pre-cut paper labels of specific sizes are available. I could not register online because site would not accept serial number no matter how I entered it. It would help product selection if Dymo would show examples of printing capabilities rather than one line simple text labels. This printer can do multiple lines of text with addressable fields and multiple formats in addition to adding graphics and art. It is black print only. It would seem good for ordinary office environments where thin paper labels are all that is required.
I use this machine to print all of my spine labels in my library. I think it is fantastic. I have not run into any of the problems listed in the comments section. I do agree with the person who commented that it needs an on/off switch.
I bought this label printer about 1 month ago, and can not believe how much I've put it to use. I didn't realize how much I was handwriting envelopes. It looks so much more professional, and was a cinch to set up and get working! LOVE IT!
I love this label maker. It is fast and efficient! I use it to label the books and media that I catalog in my library. However, the ink fades rather quickly (what a pain for labeling the spines of books), and I feel that Dymo could do a much better job of using a higher quality ink that does not fade, especially for professional use. I am now searching for a new label maker that prints labels that do not fade.
Our Turbo 330 has been in daily use since it was first offered by DYMO. That is many, many years. We buy labels 20 rolls at a time. Never a problem. It finally gave out today. I purchased a new 450 right away. The 330 paid for itself many times over. I have nothing but respect for any man-made device that could stand up to this usage for so may years. Long live DYMO.
We were looking for a labelwriter to replace the one we had before (software was out of date). This is a great product -- quick printing, easy to use. We switch the printer from one computer to another on a relatively frequent basis and it has no problems recognizing the software and starting right up. Very happy with this purchase.
