LabelWorks LW-600P Label Printer
Top Customer Reviews
You might think from the description that this printer would be a fine choice for printing cable wrap labels. After all, the description mentions labeling cables no less than five times, and they even sell a version of this printer that comes with the cable wrap labels included. I certainly jumped to that conclusion, and I couldn't have been more wrong.
See, the cable wrap labels have to be printed vertically, which should be fine, because the printer is capable of doing that. Except that vertical printing is functionality that is only included in the Windows version of the Epson Label Editor software. That's right. If you're using the OS X application, "Label Editor Lite", you can't change the print orientation. Oh, but what about the iLabel app for mobile devices, which they also mention four times in the product description? You also can't change print orientation from it. If you want to print cable wrap labels, you have to use Windows, which means that you're also tethered by the USB cable. So much for "portable".
And lest anyone suspect that I am just one of those people who can't figure out how to use a product, and then posts angry reviews about it, here's the official response from Epson when I asked them how to print vertical labels with the LW-600P:
"Thank you for contacting Epson regarding your Epson LW-600P.
I'm sorry there are features that require the full Windows version to be used."
I really wanted to like this product, and I expected a lot more from Epson, since they've done so well at not marginalizing Apple products in the past. The LW-600P is a half-hearted attempt at something that could have been a lot better; the hardware is sound, but the software is practically nonexistant. With a proper, full-featured mobile app, I could justify giving this more stars, but as it is, the lack of functionality and the deceptive product description leave me no choice but to give this only one star.
If you're looking for a label printer, look at Dymo's products instead. At least I haven't caught them blatantly misleading customers about the capabilities of their products.
Update: no thanks to the LW-600P documentation or Epson customer support, I discovered that there is a *second* mobile app that will let you print cable wrap labels. You can find it in the iOS App Store or on Google Play as "Epson Datacom". This app has a much different, more modern UI, and appears to be specifically for printing IT-related labels (for cables, patch panels, etc.). I don't get why they couldn't just update the iLabel app with this UI and functionality, or why even their Customer Support team doesn't seem to know about it. I'm upgrading my review, but only to two stars; it's still not clear how much other functionality is lacking from the mobile apps, and the fact that I have to have two separate apps on my phone to use this printer is just plain idiotic.
Others have pointed out you get a roll of tape with this unit. What's not often pointed out is you actually get TWO rolls of tape - a 1" full roll and a 1/2" sample roll. The sample roll is shorter than a full roll but it's useful (see photo).
I'm only giving it four stars because there are a couple of things that annoy me about it...detailed below.
First - bluetooth. While it's really easy to connect to the device like you would any other bluetooth device, the label printer does not auto connect each time it is powered up (like your bluetooth speaker does). This wouldn't be completely awful except the unit powers down each time you change out label tapes. So if you're printing labels and you change tapes you need to leave the app, go back to your bluetooth connection screen, reconnect the printer and resume. Annoying! No reason it couldn't autoconnect like other bluetooth devices.
The app itself has templates for just about everything you can imagine, but doing your own tweaks on the labels gets a bit perplexing. For instance let's say you want to create a series of labels all with the same font size. Some labels might be one line, some might be two line but you want them all the same size. The labeler by default autosizes the type to the maximum height. There is a font size setting but it doesn't act the way you think it would. Kinda hard to describe until you play with it but I struggled with this part.
Another annoyance is the app's "margins" setting. In this context "margins" refers to the wasted blank tape on either side of your label horizontally NOT the white space above and below your label. There are two settings: standard and minimum. When set to "standard" the label comes out as you've grown to expect from labelers - with a good 1/2" on either side of the printed part. One might think "minimum" would be a tape-saver but...not so much (see photo). You DO get a nice closely-cut label with minimal space on either side BUT inexplicably the printer first prints a 1/2" nub of blank tape, cuts it, then it prints your label! (see video) If you look at the amount of tape used with both options (see photo) you'll find it's pretty much the same...you save MAYBE an 1/8". Annoying!
I work in IT and so I decided to try printing some cable labels with it. If you're in IT be aware that there are two version of the app: One is called "Epson iLabel", the other is called "Epson Datacom". The datacom app is more limited than the iLabel app but has some nice templates specific to IT like Patch Panel labels, faceplates, cable flags, etc. You can get to the same labels in the iLabel app but they are buried in the templates. I bought a cartridge of the "self laminating cable wrap" to try out and it works fine. In the Datacom app it has a nice template for TIA-606B labels if your datacenter uses that standard. You can also create your own. The tape labels are plenty tall enough to have two lines of text but the built in templates refuse to let you use it. I was able to get something close by making a standard label and inserting blank lines beneath the text to push it up to the top of the label (trick: you have to insert a space character on each blank line). The bottom row of text is slightly off the edge but pretty close. The white background on the Epson cable label tape is not completely opaque - so if you apply it on a cable over the text on the cable itself it can make the label a bit hard to read. I wouldn't use this as my primary cable labeling tool but for in-the-field situations where you need to label a few things quickly it's great.
The Epson tapes are very high quality and I really like that they all come with split backing so you don't have to struggle with getting the backing off of the label - just fold it in half and you're good to go.
I really love this printer overall. The annoyances detailed above really aren't a huge deal to me - I just wrote them up in detail in case they're significant to someone else. The printer really makes it easy to do labeling around the house and at work, and I'm really surprised there aren't more bluetooth/portable labelers on the market...it's an obvious solution.
I bought this device thinking it would make printing labels easier and faster. As a follower of GTD I want to be able to quickly label and file documents as I go about my day. The reality is that I dread using this thing because half the time it doesn't work.
Also, why not have a wifi option, so it works like a standard network printer? Bluetooth is good when away from wifi, but it's rare we'll be using this on the move.
