Overview

Print labels without a computer

The QL-820NWB works as a traditional label printer - simply design your label on your PC or Mac, and then print. In addition, your commonly used labels can be uploaded to the internal memory locations. Then, simply scroll through the stored labels using the control panel to select and print the label. You can even print the current date and time or let the printer calculate a future one, making it ideal for printing labels for food packaging and "tested on / next test due" applications.

Rating and Reviews

Customer reviews

QL-820NWB is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why doesn't P-touch Editor work with 64 bit Office I bought the best you had due to the fact that I believed that it would work with Office 19. It doesn't and therefore it has not improved my efficiency. I should have stayed with my QL-550 it's just as good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and easy to use It is a great label machine. Not complicated to set up and to use. We bought quite of few of these for our lab, and they are been working great so far. We had a couple machines that the label got stuck. We called customer support and they were able to replace the machines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Printer Bad Software It took all day to install the software and the Brother website did not help. I kept getting error messages until I finally found a place on the internet that showed how to do it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Printer The battery lasts 12 hours and prints clearly. Works with IPADs. Sometimes information doesn't get sent from IPAD which can be annoying and have to forget the device and pair it again. Not sure if it's the IPAD or the Printer. Other than that it is brilliant. Any critics should suggest a comparable printer which has the same features. I would love to know something better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fair with some great features Great features - Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The implementation of these features is what is lacking! It doesn't seem like you can just set it up with the Wi-Fi and forget it with it able to be printed to whenever you needed to use it. I am still working on it, though. I am also finding it doesn't accept the older labels of the same type and noticed the new ones, with the same number, have a larger base with more holes which enable the machine to read what label is installed - not acceptable! I kept the machine under the hopes I can learn to use it at a later date but it is VERY EXPENSIVE considering it has only worked for me when plugged directly into the laptop!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great printer Purchased this printer because of its 2 color capability. The red tends to blend in with the black giving it a hazey look. The colors look good when printed by themselves. I would recommend the vc500 if you want color although the paper is expensive. If you want red and black printing the paper for this printer is expensive as well. I purchased the battery pack as well it works great for portable operation. I really like the wireless capability and general label printing of this printer. It uses all the same size paper as my 720 printer so I can have different size labels in each printer without changing.
