Excerpt: I would never have purchased this product if I knew it must be connected to an internet accessible computer. We have been using another brand label-maker for several years but wanted to "upgrade" to the Dymo 450 Twin Turbo. We have not been able to use the Dymo because we cannot get the software loaded without attaching it to an internet ready computer, which is not how we want to use it. Efforts to obtain assistance from Dymo have been unsuccessful.
Excerpt: Bought on strength of reviews and returned product after 1 use.Reason: Each label retracts 1/4" back into device prior to printing, in order to "reset the printer head," as tech support explained. Problem is that in doing so the labels on the strip catch on the serrated teeth in the slot, causing a loud snapping sound which also puts teeth marks on the label's edge. Tech support said this was the machine's m.o. and not to worry.
Pros: Works Quickly
Cons: Complicated Controls, Difficult to Peel, Flimsy, Jams Easily, Loud
