A good upgrade
Simon69 - 2 years ago
This labeller is a good, if unplanned, upgrade from my previous Brother labeller (pTouch 2480) which sadly went missing in mysterious circumstances.
Being able to produce excellent all-in-one labels directly from the laptop makes some jobs so much easier than before.
When using the labeller standalone it is very easy to generate a wide range of general purpose labels, but some of the functions don't seem to be quite as intuitive as they were on the old one and some templates that I used are not included, hence only 4 stars.
The half-cut function is excellent for producing a set of multiple and/or sequential labels and not having all the labels mixed up in a heap.
Anything other than basic labels are probably better created on the computer using 'P-touch Editor' because that way super-whizzy labels can be produced very easily. Another bonus that I wasn't expecting.
Doest what it says

My old printer packed up after years of abuse, and bought the Brother. Fantastic machine, easy to use and a great startup guide. Does exactly what I bought it to do and that is labels on consumer units, cable identity labels and warning labels. 10/10
real use experience

With using it for approx. 1 year, I can rate it as very good solution. Can't say that I'm using full range of functions, but what I need is done in a good quality.
But I have big problem with long pieces of tapes cut-offs. I can't find setting to remove/disable it.
I understand that company needs to sell more and more, but this is rubbish producing, so not ecological solution. And yes, not economical for user too.
Some reviewers say, that manual is great - can't agree, some functions need one-two (sometimes more) tries to be sure how it works.

Just started using the P-touch E550W so only used a few of the options. Connected to my PC easily with lots of extras available. Unit ideal for a work environment it feels really well made and can deal with every day usage.
Very Good Printer

I bought this printer as i needed something more substantial that i already had. The build quality is very good, very robust and could quite easily cope with site conditions.
The rechargeble battery is a nice addition to the package too.
All in all, a very good investment for any business.
