Good but

Like some of these new phones, you have to scroll thru to get to a particular character, just a minor annoyance. One character missing from all of the symbols, signs, wingding’s etc. is a STOP sign symbol. The largest size font is the same on 3/4" tape as on the 1/2" tape, just more white space at the top and bottom. The same goes for multiple lines, on both size tapes the label wording is the same size The display screen is quite bright, good for use in the office, but it makes the ke...

A major disappointment is the lack of availability through Epson of the AC adapter. I prefer the adapter when possible in the office and try to save the batteries for when AC power is not available like out side or in the warehouse. Battery life has been good so far to be fair.

Useless device

This device has a very bad user interface and equally poor user guide. It is almost impossible for a lay person to use and it does not do what I had expected. The device description does not give real examples of the labels that it can print or I would not have bought it. As it is I am glad I had some spare batteries laying around so I did not waste money on them as this thing is going straight to the trash and I will never buy another Epson Product.

This device has a very bad user interface and equally poor user guide. It is almost impossible for a lay person to use and it does not do what I had expected. The device description does not give real examples of the labels that it can print or I would not have bought it. As it is I am glad I had some spare batteries laying around so I did not waste money on them as this thing is going straight to the trash and I will never buy another Epson Product. If you plan to buy one be aware that it only prints very small letters and is very hard to use.

Epsom Label maker LW-400

By

from Michigan

Great machine with a lot of options.. I used it a great deal the first month I had it and have most everything labled that I use all the time. I had not even thought about using it to identify cords, cables and power supplies for my computer equipment.. the flag lables work good to identify key rings too.

Creativity!

By

from Houston TX

This labeler is very versatile in its usages. You are able to get as creative as your imagination takes you within the parameters of what is offered. Being able to use 3/4" as well as 1" tape (the variety of tapes is almost limitless!) makes it great for all types of projects. Although I have found the instructions a bit hard to decipher due to lack of detail & assumptions that you should already know the answer, I feel that with repeated use, I will be able to master most of the intricacies of the labeler. If you have never used this type of labeler before, be prepared to waste some tape in the process of learning how to use it.

PePerfect for home organization

By

from Atlanta  -  Quality Oriented

I am doing the beginning of the year clean out and organization. I am labelling everything so I can locate it at a glance. Labels are very easy to read and the portability of the label maker is key!

Not all combinations of font/sizes look good

By

from San Diego, CA

Its OK printer, the UI is adequate and easy to understand, in spite of what other reviewers say. My issue is with the font rendering quality - it tends to over-dither large font, making it look "dirty" and not only kerning is nonexistent but also at some smaller font sizes the letters tend to either overlap or to leave ugly gaps between. So matching font and font size combination that look OK is a long trial and error process, and I only ended up with just one that does not look ugly - Gothic with 2-line printing size. Bottom line, if you don't care about typography it you'll be happy with this printer, but if your eyes hurt when looking at poorly kerned and typeset text - then seek alternative.

Nifty label machine with lots of features.

By

from Boston MA

Just like using a new cell phone for the 1st time there is a learning curve with using the LW-400. The people complaining about it being hard are the ones that haven't taken the time to get familiar with it. For the price it is one amazing little machine. Some cons: the screen doesn't display what the actually label will look like. It just displays the Icons, Text and how long the label will be. The manual is sparse. It is just a few pages long and explains things, but could have been much more helpful if it gave examples.

Exactly what I spent hours researching for.

By

from Bremerton, WA

After comparing the main three brands as well as reviews on multiple sites for the main contender. There were many complaints about the instruction manual's clarity. As well as many endorsements of it's ease of use. I must say that the people who can't understand this machine need to take classes in technology to bring them out of the dark ages. This product is wonderful and a pleasure to use. This company thought of everything for enjoyment and ease of use. But, yes, the tape is overpriced.

size of font

By

from Indiana

I was surprised to find that the font was so small and could not be increased to full width of the tape. It was inadequate for the outdoor labels I had planned to make. It will be fine for indoor projects such as labeling computer and printer cables.

Very useful LabelWorks. I can use it in everywhere, anytime. And it very easy to manage. Choose from a huge range of symbols, frames, fonts, barcodes and tapes in a variety of styles, sizes and colors.

Shopper  I'm trying to decide what to get. Why did you pick this one?
GARRY K  This label printer has the least waste of tape of any printer offered. The tape cartridges are reasonably priced. I also like the large selection of symbols and the ability to create flag and wrapped labels for cables.
