    Brother PT-E550W Reviews

    PT-E550W Industrial Wireless Handheld Labeling Tool is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the Line I was shown the PT-E550W at a cabling industry convention and decided to give it a try. Of all the cable labeling tools that I have worked with during the past 20 years, the PT-E550W is the best. The labeler itself is easy to use. I can make any conceivable communications related label ahead of time for planned projects or on the spot for short order work. The printed labels are also very professional looking and the use of commonly accessible P Touch TZ tapes is a real plus (no over priced- factory order label tapes needed here). Whomever designed this one did a great job!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier to use than Edge I had the top of the line Edge for the last two years and liked it but had some problems moving company logos to and from the labeler sometimes. The quality and size of the icon had to be just right and printing was hit or miss depending on size of the tape. The 550 is a dramatic step forward in ease of use and power. First, the link to the iPhone seemed like a marketing bullet but it is really powerful to use. True WYSIWYG makes it great. I don't believe I have figured out the wireless function yet because I cannot print to the labeler without hardwiring it. Wireless has only been successful thus far sending a database to and from the labeler. Again, this could be me but it might be a limitation. But the star of the show is the true ease of use. The buttons, auto sizing of labels, LCD display, etc. all make it very easy to be productive immediately with little waste of label material (something I wasted a lot with the Edge). Super machine

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice Label Printer. Solid and versatile label printer. It will use an incredible array of label formats. The Windows software is fine but the Mac software is weak. It has difficulty with spreadsheets, etc. on a Mac.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PT-E550W Great printer for the price Very fast and easy to use

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and perfect labels Works fantastic. Like it can go from shrink cable to label and it is portable. Love the cable shrink. Not the machines fault – but would be nice to have cable shrink that would work on cables that have connectors at both ends. Again – great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great improvement from the label printers I had I had 2 different models of a competitors printers and this has out preformed in one day! I love the apps for the phone and computer. I also love the clear printing that this unit preforms. It makes me want to label everything.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Printer Purchased this after seeing a consultant using this. Works well for our need. Really like that some of the label media has a clear layer that protects the print and keeps it clean and free from smearing.
