          Comments about Primera LX400 Color Label Printer:

          We were so excited about the possibility of printing our own labels for our ever expanding eccommerce business and we thought that this printer would do the trick. After printing our first label which contains a lot of black in it we realized this printer was a bad investment. The black looks purple/blue and there is a blue hue around all the white text. We contacted Primera for pointers on getting it to print better but we were told that to print what we wanted we need their more expensive model .Because the lx400 is a 3 color process printer it could never get the colors right according to primera. The lx900 which is double the price is a 4 color process printer which is fantastic if you want to spend $! We are very disappointed that even though this is a lower model it cannot even produce a basic label with black in it. Save your money for the lx900!

              Comments about Primera LX400 Color Label Printer:

              We are a new start up and need numerous labels for different sized products so we can't go with a professional printer. As one reviewer said if you're printing just one label at a time you will go through a lot of labels. This is correct. Also, in setting up your printer for a run you will go through a lot of labels and ink. I hate this printer. We tried to return it (didn't buy it from B&H) and the company wouldn't take it back. I am going to call customer service tomorrow so that maybe they can guide me to print one [*]label correctly. Then I'll deal with the other 60 or so we have to do. A time, money and resource waister

                Great for small business labels. The only down side is that it goes through a lot of labels if you are only printing one at a time, by the time it re-loads the labels, it by passes about four labels before it finds one to begin printing.

                  As a small winery we needed a cost effective way to print small runs of high quality labels. This printer does just that. We also find the label making software easy to use to customise our own labels and make specialised labels for our customers.
                  An excellent product that really delivers.

                  Print one roll and the inks out, thats $50+ just for the ink plus the cost of the labels ($20/roll), [...]. Lets do the math, $70/300 labels = $0.23/label. Compared to Professional print service >$0.10, lx400 is best used for short runs.

                  I havent even used my first roll of labels and the ink is already out.

                  My label has a black background and the color looks dark purple.

                  The label size choices don't offer 3x5, which is what I ordered from a label supplier for this printer.

                  I couldn't get my label to print to the right end of the label, so I had to put a white border on three the left, top, and bottom to make it look like I intended to have a white border.

                    Comments about Primera LX400 Color Label Printer:

                    I purchased this to make custom labels for my electronics company. I had been using my large format printer before and this is much better for small labels. The printer loads and aligns easily and the media (I'm using only the TuffCoat Extreme) offers results that look very close to a finished laminated label.
                    Primera's printer driver is along the lines of any other Epson/Canon/HP it has its unique things to get used to but is easy enough after you do.
                    The NiceLabel SE software that is bundled works sufficiently for basic tasks however it has some bugs/issues. For example when trying to print to 2x8 inch labels using Windows 7 it would simply fail with a useless message along the lines of "Error while printing." Using Primera's knowledgebase I found the problem was it needed to run with administrator privaleges. This really shouldn't be necessary just to print, and Primera tells you to turn off UAC completely, probably not a good idea... If I didn't want to put barcodes on the labels I probably would just use Illustrator or Photoshop.

                    A very great printer but is rather expensive. Does a quality label and you can find different labels. The setup is easy and the printer is very functional in the capabilities. The ink I have found is about $40 a pop but you can refill it.
