Performance, Durability, Possibilities
I LOVE this thing! I got mine used. I've had it for years- it still works like new. Mailing labels & shipping labels are EASY and the software generates bar codes the USPS can use so mail processes quicker through the USPS sort facilities. The software is very good. It allows importing of PNG files as well as GIF & JPG. This is AWESOME FOR CREATIVES. Since the software is meant for office uses there's no kerning or leading in the typesetting process.

I LOVE this thing! I got mine used. I've had it for years- it still works like new. Mailing labels & shipping labels are EASY and the software generates bar codes the USPS can use so mail processes quicker through the USPS sort facilities. The software is very good. It allows importing of PNG files as well as GIF & JPG. This is AWESOME FOR CREATIVES. Since the software is meant for office uses there's no kerning or leading in the typesetting process. This is okay. I use Photoshop or Illustrator at a 16-bit color depth and work in ultra-black to get the best contrast, exporting to PNG. On large labels: My illustrated characters are printed on shipping labels. I distribute them as self promotion items and everybody delights in receiving them. On tape labels: I use (primarily) the 19mm for design deco-tapes when I mail packages & envelopes that are meant to promote my creative work. I wish the larger width tapes had more color choices. It is amazing what I can do with this printer and everyone just loves getting limited edition stickers and customized deco-tape on their mail and packages. FUN FUN FUN I do wish the labels wouldn't fade when outdoors in direct sunlight. I should note this isn't a good medium for urban art of that sort. This technology is not meant to produce labels for outdoor use unless intended to be temporary.

GOOD LITTLE PRINTER - BUT-----
The 450 Duo is a good printer if you don't use the tape. (Labels only) Buy a twin label instead. I tryed to get help when I first got it but the usual BS and generic replies are all I got. It is now three years old and very well used and works fine for labels only.

This little printer does not sit idle. It works hard going on 6 years now. I have three Dymos on line and they perform well. The 450 twin turbo is having issues now but still works on one side. The LabelWriter 450 is also doing great.
When it works, it's great, but it breaks down from time to time.
Makes it perfect for use with DYMO Postage. When you don't need fancy shipping labels, Dymo Postage can be a free service, just buy a roll of postage stamps. Print whatever amount you need. And the Laminated Labels is a great bonus !
Great machine for both address, shipping and file labels.
I agree with the other reviewer's that the tape jamms occasionally, but I've found that if I load the tapes correctly, they won't jam. I love having such a quick machine at my desk. It makes filing a breeze!
I admit we are not "heavy" users, but we have gone through 4 or 5 rolls of address labes and 2 of the tape rolls over the last 3 years and it has never failed to function as designed (except when I installed the roll upside down, oops) no problem, just installed correctly and everything was good again. Highly recommended!
I use this product daily and I've never had a problem with it. I really like how simple it is to use and only went on this site to see how much they cost because I want to buy one for home. The labels are easy to peel; bend the label lengthwise as there is a split there already.
This printer is easy to install and easy to use. I went from a small portable unit to this one. I wished I had done this a long time ago. This printer is so easy to use and is very fast.
Used to make labels that I do not want to fade over time.
easy to send out mailings
