OK so the symbols are on a separate button bug deal..
It's the perfect size
It prints super clear
It has a button for clip art designs and pictures!
It can write multiple lines on a single strip!
It has borders you can select to put around the text!
It can write horizontal and vertical!
The font sizes go from 8-20 on 1/2 inch tape with selection of 2 in between!
The price is 9 dollars! And it comes with tape!
Don't listen to these people complaining of things like "it's such a pain to need symbols" blah blah blah.
Just grab this and a 2 pack of 23 foot long rolls and you'll love the thing! I promise!
Oh and did I mention it's super quiet!
The tape cutter is very smooth and comes out from the top instead of the sides like other label makers!
And after all that... If you turn it over you can physically see how. Much tape you have left. Kind of like a gas gague, there is a little Window. Just buy the thing quick!
I would like to add to this review a comment about batteries, there has been multiple comments about this label maker "eating batteries"; I have used up trial cartridge and many labels into my second cartridge and have not changed the batteries in this unit. I am using Eneloop Rechargeable batteries and they have performed flawlessly. Keep in mind that this would be a higher drain type of device when printing and cheap "Super Duty" (Non-alkaline or cheap Rechargeable) batteries are probably not going to work well. As always, I recommend the investment in Eneloop batteries with a good charger (LaCrosse BC-700)
- Handheld form factor
- Easy to use
- Prints nice looking labels
- QWERTY Keyboard
- NO access to any special charactors except via menus (i.e. if you need a "-" or a "." on your label, there is NO button for this and you have to go into the symbol menu to find the symbol you want) ... This is annoying and is the reason that this label maker looses one star (most of my labels include "-" or "." in them)
*** The truth about actual label costs (Pictures will be attached to this review) ***
I printed out labels using a Brother P-Touch PT-2030 and the DYMO LabelManager 160 and these were the results of my findings:
As of the time of this writing, the DYMO 1/2" D-1 label roll is selling for $14 and includes 23 feet (276 inches) of label
As of the time of this writing, the Brother 1/2" P-Touch label roll is selling for $11 and includes 26.2 feet (314 inches) of label
I printed two labels that had this text in 24pt BOLD "TEST-XX-01"
The DYMO label that was printed including wasted space on both sides was 2.75" in length which would allow 100 labels to be printed on a $14 roll
*** $0.14 per label
The Brother label that was printed including wasted space on both sides was 4" in length which would allow 78 labels to be printed on the $11 roll
*** $0.14 per label
*** TIE ***
I printed two labels that had this text in 24pt BOLD "255.255.255.255"
The DYMO label that was printed including wasted space on both sides was 3.375" (3 3/8") in length which would allow 81 labels on $14 roll
*** $0.17 per label
The Brother label that was printed including wasted space on both sides was 4.5" in length which would allow 69 labels on a $11 roll
*** $0.16 per label
*** BROTHER WINS ***
The DYMO would win with smaller labels, it seems that my first label tested is about the tie breaker in size.
If you print SMALL labels, you will get more for your money using a DYMO label printer with less waste per label
If you print larger labels, you will get more for your money using a BROTHER label printer even though it waste more per label
The DYMO generally prints more labels per roll than the brother, even though there is less label per cart, however the Brother label is cheaper at this time.
There is also the consideration that you might be ok with the extra tape used by the dymo, and that you might hate how much extra tape is used with the brother, ... How much time might you spend trimming brother labels because they are huge?
They are both great label makers ... I hope this review helps someone make an informed decision!
- Cheaper than brother (both the unit itself and the tape cartridges)
- Intuitive and easy to use
- Love the QWERTY keyboard
- Love that it has different outline, underline, text size and style options
- LOVE that it doesn't waste NEARLY as much tape on the sides as my Brother model does (which can't be changed in settings). This is one of the major selling points for Dymo over Brother in my opinion. The tape cartirdges aren't cheap and when so much tape is wasted on either side of your text (which I usually just end up clipping off anyway) that really adds up! Hooray Dymo!
The only thing that is lame about this particular model is that it only comes with ONE FONT. While the description is technically correct, I will say that it mislead me to believe that I would be getting multiple fonts when it told me there were 6 font styles. I have no idea what they think the difference is between 'font style' and 'text style' but to me a 'font style' is simply a different font and a 'text style' is referring to bold, italics etc. This feels very misleading and confusing and I am disappointed that there is only one font. Even 2 or 3 to choose from would be nice. That's where my Brother wins out. But that's the only area. Everything else about this labeler is fantastic! If I had to buy a new one for myself, I'd buy this one over the Brother in a heart beat. Hope this helps!

Update: I went out and got some energizer AAA vs the Costco Duracells I used before. This didn’t help either.
I tried cleaning the cassette and the sensor and the labels are still coming out blank. Very disappointed in this product after reading so many good things about it.
I’m reluctant to spend another $20 to test out a new roll of labels just in case this one is dry.
Currently waiting for a response from dymo about this issue.
You can see all the test strips from the various attempts that resulted in wasted, blank labels.
Update 2: No response from Dymo. I've decided to return the product and go with another brand.
I also bought 6.5ft Cord AC DC adapter for DYMO LabelManager LM-160 LT-100H LM-500TS, LabelPOINT / Label Manager / Rhino RhinoPRO / Letratag Plus / ExecuLabel Series Printer Electronic Labelmaker / Labeling System Switching Power Supply Cord Charger which works very well so I don't need batteries.
Package came with one 3m long spool of 12mm wide tape (10' long 1/2" wide) which is more than enough to get started with the unit.
Just pop the tape cassette into the back and close the lid, pop in 6 AAA batteries and you're off to the races... but more on this later.
You can choose a few predetermine font sizes between 8 - 24 and it has some nice underline and text outline effects. Pretty impressed and were able to print some cable and container labels really easily.
Unfortunately you'll need to look elsewhere if you want to type anything other than alphanumeric characters, but for the price of this particular unit it functions fine. Buttons are soft and mushy but I doubt you will be doing any long term typing sessions on this thing. My only complaint about this item is the fact that it takes AAA batteries, and 6 of them at that. They seem to have more than enough space to accomodate AA batteries in the body itself. I already ran into issues where I tried to use partially full batteries that would power on the unit and let me type out and design the label, but as soon as I hit print... it would display low power and shut the unit down. Also no power adapter comes with this particular package so for these two reasons I have to knock off atleast one star.
Overall, I'm very happy with the label maker and the results; but I do have concerns about the power required for this so it may be worthwhile picking up the power adapter in the future.
Permite 3 tamaños de fuente, y escribir una o dos líneas, cuenta con varios clip-arts y simbolos que cubriría la mayoria de los usos.
La cinta es de esas que el papelito esta cortado a la mitad, asi que es más fácil de acomodar pues despegas primero un lado, acomodas usando la parte sin pegamento y ya que esté alineado a tu gusto, presionas la que si tiene engomado, y ya posteriormente remueves la otra mitad.
Tambien permite ponerle marquito a la etiqueta, con diferentes niveles de grosor y adornos
- Tamaños de fuente de 8,10,12,16, 20 y24 puntos
- Orientación vertical y horizontal
- Hasta dos líneas de texto
- Diferentes marcos
negritas y cursivas
-Diferen0tes sets de símbolos (125) y cliparts (110)
- Muiltiples idiomas incluido español ( soporta ñ y acentos)
-Requiere 6 barias AAA
- Para mi gusto deja mucho espacio en blanco antes y despues del texto, que finalmente recorto, por lo que es un desperdicio de cinta.
I made over 50 labels and the batteries are still going strong. The only thing I wish it had was a clear button so I could erase the previously entered label and start fresh. Maybe there is one and I just haven't found it yet. For now, I've been backspacing to erase each letter individually.
The ink used on the labels is excellent. It does not smear when applying the label to the given surface. I had to press down on several of them as they were used on a curved surface and the print did not smudge at all. Very pleased with the product and quality of labels!
