Summary: SPECIAL PRICING ON LABELS WITH PURCHASE OF PRINTER WOULD HAVE BEEN HELPFUL,PRINTER ARRIVED QUICKLY AND PRICING WAS GOOD - SPECIAL PRICING ON LABELS WOULD HAVE MADE THE PURCHASING EXPERIENCE SUPERIOR
Pros: SMALL COMPACT
Cons: HARD TO FIGURE OUT WHICH LABEL WOULD BE BEST FOR OUR NEEDS, LABEL PRICING WAS DIFFERENT THROUGHOUT THE MANY SUPPLIERS
Excerpt: "oh brother!" LOL!-you have to use brother label rolls only! i would of never bought this printer if this was mentioned! i only used it a couple of months and now it does not work? i will go back to my zebra printer!
Excerpt: When you get told that it is compatible with labelling applications you expect it to give 4x6 inch label output since it is a 4 inch wide labeller. NO! It requires the narrower continuous label roll and requires you to snip the label into sections to be compatible for most box and envelope sizes. It also doesn't work with Fedex, UPS and USPS Websites or Shiprush software and doesn't work with Stamps.com.
Pros: Great printer, especially considering the price. I bought this to replace a $3000 Zebra printer for UPS label printing. It performs well, and UPS WorldShip software picks it up and uses it with the 4"x6" labels flawlessly. The labels are a bit on the spendy side, but I suspect that Brother is selling this thing for next to cost to get the consumable business. The labels are one piece, with no separate imaging foil needed like on the larger commercial printers, so load...
Cons: Labels have pronounced curl, especially towards the end of the roll, but I suppose you can't get around that by using a larger core, and still have the printer itself stay so compact.
