Too many parts missing
BART "BART", Amazon
16 December 2013
Summary: Product not usable had too many parts missing, no instructions, no software no power cord, and other unknown parts missing. As of 1 January 2014 I have not received credit for returning this item nor any other information.
Summary: Please... save yourself some aggravation and DO NOT purchase this printer. It will print labels but if you are wanting to print stamps with it, you will be immediately trapped into having to upgrade the printer. This is a rip-off.
Cannot use for postage for free. Disceptive advertising.

Summary: Do not purchase this item unless you want to either pay a monthly fee or purchase their overpriced Dymo brand labels. Despite the description, you CANNOT use generic labels unless you sign up for a monthly plan. If you have any doubts about this I invite you to look at the Endicia page on Facebook.
Summary: I have five label printers, three are DYMO. That is about two too many. DYMO's paper labels work well for quick and dirty jobs. They fade rapidly in sunlight, so they cannot be considered for durability in daylight. That is why I ordered a DYMO Duo. It has vinyl tapes in addition to paper tape.
Summary: I think Amazon received a bad batch of these. I just received my second one which has the same problem. Put the tape in and it feeds out a little and won't cut. Now the tape is stuck and you can't cycle the cutter or anything to get the tape cassette out. The factory is going to send me another one.
Excerpt: The printer works great BUT the rub comes with the company. They do NOT update the drivers when the operating systems upgrade. I have over sixty Labelwriter Turbos that are working great but they stopped being supported with MacOS X 10.3.9. They do NOT work with 10.4 or above.
Pros: Durable, Quiet, Simple Controls, Works Quickly
Excerpt: The newest version of the software makes it very difficult to find the menus for using tapes instead of labels. Since I use tape infrequently, I have to keep looking up in manual where to find it, since its not intuitive.
