"Proprietary Labels Required"1.0 starson by agilitygsd
Pros: Easy to Use
Cons: Proprietary Labels Required
Summary: The printer and s/w are easy to use but the problem with this printer is that it requires a totally proprietary label with special spindle and adapter to use.
We custom ordered our labels with our logo on them from our local print shop for use in our DYMO and they worked just fine - we cannot do that with the QL500 because of the design. You are locked into purchasing the Brother brand of labels. If you only need to print the occasional label that's fine (but then if you only need an occasional label you probably don't need a dedicated label printer).
We've long known that the inkjet manufacturers are making their money off of ink cartridges - now we know how they plan to make money off the low cost label printers - the labels.
