Great stuff but needs wifi
It's really great machine compared to what's on the market but make sure you have wifi if you really want to use it's full capacity!
Definitely recommend it!

PTE550WVP - A little caution for small hands
This is perhaps the only aspect I could share any constructive criticism over.
The PTE550WVP is easy to use and no doubt the fullness of its features and functionality will never get truly tested, but I will try - for now it does everything expected and needed.
When working on a flat surface, no issues and its not until trying to use effectively one handed that the ergonomics could be enhanced. If you have large(r) hands than not a problem to operate, but if like me... then the unit does become a little hard to manage holding with one hand.

Bought this at an nic event for a very good price. This is one of the most useful and most used tools i own

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.

So Glad I chose Brother
I nearly bought the Dymo equivalent machine but something kept pulling me back to the Brother PTE550WVP and I am so glad I opted for it. It worked seamlessly out of the box and after downloading an app it worked faultlessly on my Android phone. I already have a Brother QL-1060N PC based label printer which I use for envelopes and such and the software is the same as used by the Brother PTE550WVP so I can also print via wi-fi direct to the PTE550WVP making life so much easier, the print quality is good, labels are readily available, it's a no brainer - what are you waiting for?

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.
