Brother QL-1060N Label Printer

 

Brother's latest label printer is fast and cheap.

Only Works with Brother Labels

 

I haven't used due to paper restrictions.

Will not work with any labels other than Brother DK Labels. DK labels have a special spool holder. If that spool holder isn't in the printer it won't work. Spool holder also tells the printer for which size paper is installed.

This thing is great

 

I've been using this with Excel - if you select the QL-1060N as your printer in the Excel print options, the dotted page break lines will show up on the speadsheet corresponding to the label size installed in the printer. This makes it quick and easy...

Extremely fast, large selection of labels, integrated easily into office network, automatically detects label size, printer driver works well with MS Office.

P-touch software seems a little cluttered, but really all I need is the printer driver and MS Office

useless for most applications

 

When you get told that it is compatible with labelling applications you expect it to give 4x6 inch label output since it is a 4 inch wide labeller. NO! It requires the narrower continuous label roll and requires you to snip the label into sections to...

Disappointing replacement for LP 2844

 

I replaced an LP 2844 with this for use with Endicia and their Dazzle mailing label software. It networked easily. Dazzle is fine with it, but the small international labels don't fit into the print area of a 4x6 label. [...] still takes them, but...

Wish I would have bought this long ago

 

Great tool for people who like to label. I had the p-touch for many years and wish I would have bought this printer many years ago. Multi functional and perfect for personal or business use.
