The Epson LW-300 and LW-400 printers are very similar in capability. The primary differences are enumerated below:
1. The LW-300 supports tape widths up to 1/2" while the LW-400 supports tape widths up to 3/4".
2. The LW-300 can store up to 30 labels while the LW-400 can store up to 50 labels.
3. The LW-300 can print up to 2 lines per label while the LW-400 can print up to 4 lines per label.
4. The LW-300 takes 6 AAA batteries while the LW-400 takes 6 AA batteries (batteries not included with either printer).
Both of these printers offer 14 different fonts in 10 different styles and both have more than 300 special characters that can be printed. They each also offer a variety of "frames" that can be set to print around the selected text.
The biggest difference, however, between the two printers is that the LW-400 can create special formats. It can create flag labels for cables, wrapped labels for cables and, of great importance to some users, it can print barcodes in 8 different formats. When printing barcodes, the LW-400 is also smart enough to recognize if you don't have a sufficient number of digits entered for that particular barcode format; it won't let you print the barcode until you have entered the proper number of digits.
Both machines are easy to set up. Once they are out of the box, you'll be printing labels in 2 or 3 minutes. Changing tape is easy on both units and both accept the same wide variety of tape media (bearing in mind that the LW-300 is limited to a maximum tape width of 1/2").
Having said all that -- and even though I'm impressed by the printing capabilities of both of these units -- I am disappointed in the print quality. Both units print purely horizontal or vertical lines very well, but curved lines are rough. They look pixelated. The resolution of the print head is simply not sufficient to render smooth curved lines. I also have a Brother label printer and, although it doesn't offer the variety of fonts and special characters that these Epson printers offer, the Brother labels are crisper and cleaner.
These printers would easily garner 5 stars if their print quality was better. Print quality aside, these printers are well thought out and engineered. They are simple to use with intuitive controls. While the print quality is not exceptional, it will probably suffice for most users.
The only negatives are:
1. it uses 6 AAA batteries, not included. Or you can buy the AC adapter
2. it prints a bit slowly
3. I didn't see a clear button, so I had to delete every character before typing in a new spice. However, I didn't search hard for it.
The positives are:
1. it's awesome
2. it's easy to set up and use
3. the labels look great (see my photo)
4. it comes with a starter roll of tape that is more than sufficient
5. it's fun to use
6. it has a quality feel for a great price
7. replacement tape is inexpensive
I am very happy with this purchase and would highly recommend it.
1. It's rather large, I think. It's not comfy to hold in one hand as I did with my previous label maker.
2. The buttons need a bit of heavy handedness. You have to give them a good solid press, or it'll easily skip.
3. The cut button is needlessly huge.
The listing has a good pic of the front, but I've made a couple of pix of the back of it.
In one pic you can see the view window for the label cartridge. Very handy, that, plus it's indented enough that it's what I use to brace a finger to allow me to hold it with 1 hand. It works for either hand, despite the honkin big cut button. You can also see where it's molded into the case the size of the label spools needed, which I appreciate VERY much. And that useful little 'quick tips' bit was all I needed to get me started.
Other pic you can see all the innards. This is part of what allows me to overlook its overall large size - plenty of room to get hold of the cartridge and/or batteries. Having had a much smaller one, I well remember struggling to change the cartridge.
You'll need to fiddle around with buttons to find the various special effects menus and how they work, but it really does have what I consider to be some serious extras there. Frames, fonts, sizes, multiple lines, etc. Extremely useful.
They have plenty of different label types, like iron-ons, etc. Lots of different colors. And of course, as others have noted, this one wastes a lot less tape on beginning and end blank space.
Definite home run for me.
