Too much waste offsets low cost.

JC, Staples

  • Excerpt: I bought this because my local store was out of stock on handheld Dymo products. Don't be fooled by the low price; you *will* make up for it (and quickly) with their $20+ per roll tape, because this thing spits out a full inch minimum (no matter what margins are set to) of blank tape per label.

Don't Waste Your Money

Wanda M, Staples
22 May 2014
  • Excerpt: This label maker EATS batteries. Literally. You make ten labels and the batteries are dead. No matter what brand of battery. Spend your money wiser, pay a little extra, and get a label maker with a power cord!

Waste of Batteries and Label Tape

EBMUA, Staples
22 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I really looked around at a mid priced label maker for home use. I read many reviews and thought this had a lot of good ones. I'm finding I use it less and less and still printing labels on paper and taping it onto things. The battery life lasts about 10 labels at most. If you leave it on while labeling, than maybe 6. There is an inch of excess of tape on each end of the label so you will have to cut it off.
  • Pros: Handheld
  • Cons: Poor Battery Power, Poor Value

too many batteries to operate

prple8, Staples
31 October 2013
  • Excerpt: product is good since it is hand-held, but really needs a chargeable battery or at least make it operate with two not six batteries. I really like the price that I got it for, and I can find many uses for it, since I am trying to get all my things organized, and labled. I would not recommend the product if in the long run you want to save money, but I would recommend the product if you just need something inexpensive right at the moment and already have rechargeable...
  • Pros: Good Value
  • Cons: Too Many Batteries

Garbage

mashedpotatoes, Staples
3 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Wow. I think this was on sale for like $10 marked down from $30 or $40 and it's not even worth 10! Clunky interface, uses a ton of batteries and most of all it wastes tape! You have an extra 1" of tape on each end of your label and it can't be resized. I returned this piece of junk within a day.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Complicated Interface, Label Size Not Adjustable, Uses A Ton Of Batteries, Wastes Label Tape

Very Poor Printing

BusinessGuy, Staples
3 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I have had another Brother label maker for ten years, so I thought this would be a safe purchase. It was almost impossible to get it to print properly, even after trying different tapes. It would leave off the beginning or end of the text, or it would mess up the middle. I returned it.
  • Cons: Unreliable

So much waste!

Lacey, Staples
30 December 2012
  • Excerpt: This label maker is not economical in the least. The first day I used it (to make binder labels for ONE binder) it ran out of tape. The reason? The labels print with about an inch of blank tape on each end. There is no way to fix this. The only thing you can do is right align or left align the text, which still leaves you with a waster of paper and either way, you still have to hand-cut the extra blank tape, which basically voids the usefullness of the built-in cutter.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Large Footprint, Pricey Replacement Ink
