Great printer but the available apps need improvement
This is a great multi interface printer with USB and WiFi. I can create lables directly on the printer or on a couple of Brother apps on my iPad, iPhone or using Brother's P-touch software on my PC or Laptop. The P-touch software being the most featured, then the apps and then the printer itself. However, being able to create lables on various platforms has it's drawbacks and that is mainly where they are stored. To overcome this it would greatly help if the apps had Cloud support that way at least the files created using the apps and the P-touch software would be easily accessible across those platforms. Changing this great printer into an awesome printer!

Great Handheld Printer
Bought two of these to replace a previously fantastic Brother label printer which lasted 3 years of heavy use. The portable nature of the PTE550WVP makes it easy to take with you wherever you go, and the plethora of features means it can tackle any job you need it to. Would have been nice if it could print 36mm but it would have made it a bit cumbersome to hold in one hand (which you can do, if you have relatively big hands). Thoroughly recommended.

Upgraded from an old smaller machine with limited abilities to this. What a great machine. Good quality labels with good size range. Ability to print heat shrink too is great and makes for very professional results. Can print my own logo onto labels too.

Best labeller to date
As an electrician I need custom labels for a multitude of applications. Having used Brother products for the past 10 years the PTE550WVP is the best yet. The self cutting feature saves a lot of time on site, and now with the mobile connectivity I can create different label styles instantly.

Best label printer I have owned, perfect for all my cable installations

As an electrician, labelling is vital and with the never ending changes and updates keeping labels in a draw just wasn't going to cut it. The real benefit though is that my labelling of customer consumer units and installations with current warning notices has already paid dividends through recommendations. One client asking what I was doing; saying" the last guy never did that!"
