I've had the model 100 for 8 years before it finally gave out and I'm just as impressed with the replacement model. A necessary tool for any business person wanting a professional look.

I've used these printers for years with Windows software at work and home - they are mechanically well built and reliable. I was very disappointed, however, when I purchased this device for use with a new MacBook. Compared to the intuitive, clean, simple software interface for the PC, the Mac-compatible software provided by Seiko for this printer is simply terrible. It seems to me the Mac UI software was clearly an afterthought. It is so bad that we will manually feed a blank label through the printer and tear it off, then handwrite on the label when we only need one label rather than go through the pain of using the Mac software interface. Some of the most frustrating differences between the Mac and PC versions of the software:

1 - If there is a regular printer connected to the Mac as the default printer, the Seiko label printer will default to that device when the first started. The label printer must be manually selected each time.

2 - The software provides a default address template each time software starts. That template can't be changed, nor can a substitute template, or no template, be configured to appear on startup. The template must be manually deleted after startup.

3 - The PC User Interface provides a simple WYSIWYG presentation of the label as you type that is available instantly after the software is initiated. The MAC Interface does not. After you delete the default template, if you have created custom templates, you must select one of those templates after you start.

4 - The MAC templates do not permit saving a "blank" template on which you could immediately begin to type.

So easy to make address labels...neater than handwriting and faster!! My old Seiko 200 finally gave out(after 10 years) and this new one easily installed and recaptured my address list. This was a great purchase thru Amazon!!

I have had a Smart Label Printer at work for over 10 years and when I retired last month, I knew I had to get my own.

It is great for file folders or labeling other things. I mainly use SLP-2RL labels.

I highly recommend it if you are a labeling freek like myself.

This Seiko is replacing an old Dymo label printer at work that finally failed after years of use.

The new Seiko 440 was priced right at Amazon, looks attractive in Jade & Ivory, and was easy to install. I downloaded the latest Seiko software from the web, it works fine with 64-bit Windows 7 with the printer on a USB port.

POSITIVES:

+ Good print quality. 300dpi resolution, type is smooth and dark

+ Prints quietly

+ Seiko software is full-featured, but less intuitive than Dymo software

SOME ISSUES:

- Paper loading on the Seiko is more difficult than on Dymo printers, and it's easy to load the labels so they are not feeding straight. You almost have to be looking directly at the rear of the printer during loading.

- Removable front cover plate reveals a platen release lever, which is handy when clearing paper jams, but the front cover requires a lot of force to remove, then it suddenly SNAPS off loudly. Poor design, there should be a spring-loaded button or latch that releases the front cover GRACEFULLY.

- Cylindrical cover on top swings-back to reveal the roll of labels underneath. As with the cover plate, too much force is required to UN-SNAP this cover.

- Push the front panel power button to toggle between Ready and Standby modes. The problem is that the green READY light looks almost exactly like the yellow STANDBY light. Seiko should have used a better two-color LED lamp. (and no, I am not color-blind!)

I've owned Seiko Smart Label Printers before and this one lives up to the quality of the previous three I've purchased. These printers are easy to install, nice because they print a single label at a time with no alignment issues, great because there is no toner to buy and last a long time. I think I've had the last printer over seven years; it finally gave out after much use. I would definitely check with Amazon first next time. I think it saved me at least $30 to buy through them. Couldn't be happier!

I have used this little printer at my office for about 18 months now. I love it! It's fast and easy to use. There really is nothing to do except type your label or various other items (name badges, etc) and hit print. Just bought one for home use.

I've been using the SLP 200 until it finally pooped out last month and there are so many things that it can used for. One example which hasn't been mentioned that I know off is to use the larger labels to label things that you store in your attic or whatever.

A quick tip on Labeling: instead of using those Black permanent marking pens which can't be erased. Use a WIDE painters tape a bit larger than your label. Place that on your container, then place the label on top of it. That way if you need to re-label, it's just a matter of peeling off the tape. As a matter of fact, you don't even need to use a label. Just write on the painters tape and peel off when no longer needed. Doesn't leave an old label that you can't erase!

For quick mail outs and if you have arthritis or have terrible handwriting, this certainly helps in making your address, Folder labels (or whatever) more ligible.

The one thing that I have against it is that because it is THERMAL printing, it tends to fade out, especially in bright light. I tried labeling potted orchid plants but the bright light soon faded the writing to where it was barely visible.

But for indoor and storage use, it works great!
