DYMO LabelWriter Duo

 

Both printers are part of DYMO's new generation of label printers, which includes the LabelWriter 400 Turbo, with a claimed speed of 55 labels per minute. The Duo is essentially a LabelWriter 400 Turbo mounted on top of (and nicely integrated with)...

Combines a standard label printer for paper labels with another printer for plastic labels. Same footprint as a standard label printer

Height and bulk make it more imposing than a standard label printer on a desktop

If you need a label printer for both paper address labels and permanent plastic, nylon, or polyester labels, the DYMO LabelWriter Duo excels at doing both.

This Dymo LabelWriter has two heads, hence the name, and as far as label printers go, it's up there with the best.

This is an extremely well-made and versatile printer for handling the specialist task of printing labels. Having the facility to print on robust plastic tape is a bonus and although the running costs aren't low, the results the LabelWriter Duo produces...

Who needs a label printer? Surely they're just a luxury you can bypass with a sheet of labels in your regular A4 printer? Well, not quite, particularly if you need to print individual labels to a variety of addresses. Dymo has built up a good range of...

This is fair, since A4 label sheets for a regular inkjet or laser printer cost about 40p per page from a high street stationery store, plus about 3p for toner or ink. The equivalent cost using this device works out at about 28p. But that's not what the...

DYMO LABELWRITER 400 TURBO

 

I have been using Dymo Labelwriters since I had my first Macintosh. They are easy to install and don't take up much space on my desk. I wouldn't think of trying any other type.

Very fast, prints label in only seconds

Can't think of any

Consumer review by:

DYMO LABELWRITER 400 TURBO

 

Works as advertised and price was very reasonable. Quality of manufacture of the Labelwriter is very good. Operates very quietly and very fast. Well worth the money and would buy again without hesitation.

Prints extremely fast and software is very easy to use

They call it CD label but it is less than 2" in diameter so you can barely appreciate it. The labels got stuck all the time. The machine software malfunctioned and I had to reinstall it. Smart paste worked once and did not work next five times. The...

Poor product, labels gets stuck all the time, CD labels are a joke

I have been using a Brother QL-500, but it doesn't work with the postage labels required by stamps.com. I purchased this machine for that purpose. It was very easy to hookup to the computer, and I was printing labels within 5 minutes.

easy to use; nice compact size; looks nice; easy label tear-off; no ink cartridge to run out of ink at a bad time

haven't found any yet

DYMO LABELWRITER 400 TURBO

 

As the world turns with being young and restless, technology stands still for no one. Here in the Louisiana area, the company uses the LabelWriter 400 Turbo mainly for security reasons to have visitors, clients and vendors presence clear known.

Precise and very quick

At this time, none
