Ratings and Reviews

Customer reviews

PTE550WVP is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good upgrade This labeller is a good, if unplanned, upgrade from my previous Brother labeller (pTouch 2480) which sadly went missing in mysterious circumstances. Being able to produce excellent all-in-one labels directly from the laptop makes some jobs so much easier than before. When using the labeller standalone it is very easy to generate a wide range of general purpose labels, but some of the functions don't seem to be quite as intuitive as they were on the old one and some templates that I used are not included, hence only 4 stars. The half-cut function is excellent for producing a set of multiple and/or sequential labels and not having all the labels mixed up in a heap. Anything other than basic labels are probably better created on the computer using 'P-touch Editor' because that way super-whizzy labels can be produced very easily. Another bonus that I wasn't expecting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doest what it says My old printer packed up after years of abuse, and bought the Brother. Fantastic machine, easy to use and a great startup guide. Does exactly what I bought it to do and that is labels on consumer units, cable identity labels and warning labels. 10/10

Rated 3 out of 5 by from real use experience With using it for approx. 1 year, I can rate it as very good solution. Can't say that I'm using full range of functions, but what I need is done in a good quality. But I have big problem with long pieces of tapes cut-offs. I can't find setting to remove/disable it. I understand that company needs to sell more and more, but this is rubbish producing, so not ecological solution. And yes, not economical for user too. Some reviewers say, that manual is great - can't agree, some functions need one-two (sometimes more) tries to be sure how it works.

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!
