" ...  First one laster a few months and then printer will.not print correctly.  ...  "
comment
" ...  But every 1 label I print probably 50 more get wasted. ... Now all of a sudden it prints 1 label and a dozen blank ones.  ...  "
comment
" ...  At times it spits out way too many, trying to read if there are any labels. ... Other times it won't let me print anything at all because it thinks it's out of labels when there's a full role of DYMO brand in! ... It's sad I have to go buy a new label printer already.  ...  "
comment
" ...  We use the for printing ebay shipping labels but its very difficult to setup. ... Not recommended – Avoid this printer at all costs.  ...  "
comment
" ...  But over time, wasted too many labels because of random spewing and printing not being aligned. ... Then it randomly starts spewing more labels out without any prints. ... I'm done dealing with this printer. ... Some days it is connected and your prints will go through. ... Some days it isn't and your request to print gets lost in limbo.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I have had this printer for a little overall 18 months. ... Duplicate labels are printed ... Labels are printed halfway between two labels ... Off center prints. ... AVOID THIS PRINTER AT ALL COSTS.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Besides randomly printing/wasting blank labels . ... it’s printing capabilities has really gone downhill in the last several months. ... I checked and replaced both cords it used, but sadly it’s the printer.  ...  "

comment
" ...  This one included labels that caused the whole thing to freeze up because some kind of old glue was stuck to the labels and I didnt know it before using them. ... It got chunks of hard dried glue on the roller. ... Then it would not feed the labels through correctly cutting them off in the middle. ...
