Dymo Rhino 4200 Review

PRINTER Review

The Dymo Rhino 4200 has been around for a long time. I thought it would be worth doing this little review as it’s a great value printer for what it does. As I type this, the printer is on offer as £34.49 +VAT with free standard delivery which puts it in great competition with the Brother PT-E series. This printer features a great selection of tape materials and label types for any electrician or communications installer.

Colour Address Label Printer: Brother QL-800 & QL-810W Review

Brother QL-800 and QL-810W Review

First things first. It’s not full colour, so please don’t get too excited. However, it still is a fairly exciting thing because this a 2 colour printer that doesn’t require any ink, toner or ribbon. This is the first twin colour direct thermal printer from Brother in the QL range, and the first in the market it’s aimed at.

As I’m reviewing 2 very similar printers at the same time, I’ll review mostly the QL-800 and then mention any differences with the QL-810W.

Update: Leitz Icon Label Printer Re-Review

Leitz Icon Label Printer


Pros Cons
WiFi & USB I found the software still crashes on selecting address templates
Optional battery pack I found the mobile app to be slow and in some case unresponsive
Easy to load tapes No standby or power off which could mean a flat battery

Introduction

Leitz have released a printer that dives right into the middle of the market. With die-cut, continuous, paper and plastic labels, this printer will help suit any requirement around the home, office or even a warehouse. Compatible with Android, iOS, Mac and Windows over USB or WiFi.
Please read the original review first. They were a little disappointed with the score I previously gave it. They have since updated the software, released the mobile app for Android and supplied me with the battery and some other tapes to try. Consider this review the real review.Continue Reading…

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Brother P-Touch D800W Printer Review

Once again, Brother seem to have made a product without actually looking at the market to see if there’s place for it. Then they hold you to ransom by discontinuing what is now looking like its predecessor.
As you can probably tell by the tone of my first 2 sentences, I’m not a massive fan of this printer. That is to say I don’t hate it. It’s both great and terrible at the same time. The features are great on paper, but in reality it’s a different story. It’s like a cheap sofa-bed; you’ll never find one that’s great at being a sofa and a bed. This printer is neither great at being a portable printer nor a doorstop.

DYMO XTL 300 Review & Compare

DYMO XTL 300 Label Printer

It’s the little brother!

The XTL 300 is the XTL 500’s little brother. It does nearly all the same features but in a smaller package. It prints tape sizes up to 24mm wide in a variety of materials, has a colour screen, a clicky QWERTY keyboard and rechargeable battery.
