5 out of 5 eggsGreat Printer!

Pros: Super fast - super easy to use. Great print quality

I can't believe how much faster it is than using 1/2 page labels through a inkjet printer!

Cons: None so far...

Other Thoughts: I saved quite a bit by buying doberman brand labels instead of Brother. Very nice quality.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Printer

Pros: Good speed, good durability, outstanding quality of the labels themselves.

Cons: Replacement Cutter blades are expensive and can be hard to find if you are going to be doing a lot of labels. Cleaning sheets are almost non-existant for these (only one comes with it) even though brother recommends using a cleaning sheet every few thousand labels (which would be once a day at least for me).

Other Thoughts: I run a mailing center where we use 40+ of these machines for 8+ hours a day solid. The #1 failure on these units is the auto-cutter motor burns out if you continue cutting with a dull blade. Change the blades regularily, and you wont have this problem.

5 out of 5 eggsI forgot to add...

Comments: While this unit has a slightly larger footprint than it's competitor, it has NO WALL WART and no in-line power supply. Just super flexible 3-wire AC cable. - VERY NICE!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Comments: I use the QL550 to print pre cut shipping labels for products and it works great I've never seen another lable printer auto cut and print so fast and so efficiently. The only downside is when it prints the lables them seem to go all over the place. All in all this is a great product and the software is very powerful when used with Excel though getting it to work with Access might take some work depending if you're printing from a query or a table.
