QL-1100 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good labeller Good mail labeller, does what it is supposed to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy Love the QL-1100. When I bought it and it did take a hot minute to figure it out. I am very pleased with this product. Hasn't skipped a beat. Clear print every time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it, too much hassle. Can't get it to load properly on my computer, even though I have had techs remote in to try and fix it. Would prefer a refund. Much to expensive for the lack of work it does. You are better off just using a regular printer with 2 labels per page.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Labels are way too expensive Great printer, but the labels are too overly high quality and I don't want to pay the premium for a short lived shipping label that only has a life need of 10 days. There needs to be a cheaper option for shipping needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lazer Fast Printing [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This printer just shoots labels out. I use mostly for printing shipping labels. It is extremely easy to refill. Requires no ink which is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Praktisch für Versandlabels Vor allem die automatische Schnittfunktion des Druckertreibers ist gut gelungen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from QL-1100 Once set up is complete its fairly simple to operate.
Date published: 2022-08-30
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incredibly environmentally unfriendly Each roll of labels comes with its own plastic holder that has to be thrown away after, this also means that you can not even choose to buy more eco friendly labels to use with the printer and as the plastic holders are not recyclable contributes hugely to unnecessary plastic waste
