PTE550WVP is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Handy Just started using the P-touch E550W so only used a few of the options. Connected to my PC easily with lots of extras available. Unit ideal for a work environment it feels really well made and can deal with every day usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Printer I bought this printer as i needed something more substantial that i already had. The build quality is very good, very robust and could quite easily cope with site conditions. The rechargeble battery is a nice addition to the package too. All in all, a very good investment for any business.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent printer with only 1 flaw in my opinion The PT-E550WVP is a great printer and has a good set of features. It's easy to use on the most part with one exception which is printing from a database which I feel is not easy to do. The manual is clear on the whole and the desktop and mobile software is ok I guess but again I feel the database printing side could and should be explained better and covered more both in the manual and online. The printers screen is bright and easy to read in all light conditions but I would have liked the keys to be back lit which would have made operation easier in low light conditions. The fact this printer has WiFi built in was one of the main reasons I bought mine. I also like the fact there are tons of label sizes and colours available not to mention the ability to print directly onto heat shrink tubing. I also like the fact that this printer has a rechargeable battery as standard which seems to last a decent amount of time between charges. I carry a set of spare AA batteries tho just in case. I do use my printer a lot I have to say simply because it makes labelling a pleasant and quick task and the end result looks professional. The printer comes with everything you need to get you up and running quickly and with a 3 year warranty peace of mind too!.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
