Love this Label Maker,

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've purchased three label makers over the last 2 years. This will be the last one. So much easier to use.
The biggest problem I've had with the label makers is relatively complicated setup. For example, it can be surprisingly hard to print the right size font. Sometimes I wanted large text for labeling boxes for a move. Other times, I wanted a particular, small font for labeling light switches for a home automation setup. It was so hard to remember how to pick the right font and size for the light switches that I'd end up wasting a bunch of label tape by trial and error.
The DYMO with touch screen is the best of all worlds. I like the manual keyboard for quickly entering the text of the message with my thumbs (like on a Blackberry phone) but like the touch screen for a much more intuitive control of size and fonts. For example, I just saved the home automation settings as a separate user and profile. Now... it's right there when I need it.
It's really the reasons above that I like it so much, but I'll add that it does seem to print faster than my Epson or other DYMO label maker did, and the rechargeable batteries are really nice, too.
