Download the additional Desktop software
Reviewed in Australia on 22 August 2020
I bought this for simple around-the-home labelling duties. Well made. Bigger than I thought it would be. Glad they supplied cable as the USB connector into the unit is an old-style that I did not have lying around.
Would recommend downloading the additional full Desktop software from Dymo site. It's not very intuitive but once you work it out it's fine and offers a lot of extra options.
I had setup issues when first using related to what appears to be a know-issue with the tape-cartridges. You load the tape unit, and when printing it makes lots of noise as if it's working, but the tape does not move or print. Some searching online indicated this was a common issue and relates to the tape cartridge and not the printer. I was able to solve it eventually by following the online help from others. Seems to be a hit-miss thing depending on the individual cartridge. So am expecting to encounter this again.
That issue aside, I'm very happy with this printer. Great labels and the convenience of using my computer to create them rather than dealing with the (necessarily) clunky interfaces on the stand-alone units. If you don't need a portable stand-alone unit then this is the one for you. No batteries required either. Powered by rechargeable internal battery and charged by the same USB connection to PC.
