Printing on 4x6 labels was something my regular ink jet printer was assigned to do until I got the 4XL...The labels from the ink jet were not waterproof, and it was always a hassle loading the label sheets. Now, the 4XL is assigned to all the USPS, DHL, UPS printing tasks and it does an amazing job...the labels are waterproof, highly durable, and the printing is hi-res quality.

This is my third Labelwriter; the other two became obsolete due to OS changes. This one has poor software and a serious manufacturing flaw, no ON/OFF switch. The software is difficult to learn; even the elementary distinction between a new address in a file and a new label type is obscure. The data import feature is extremely limited as it won't even import old LaberWriter files. The third-party postage stamp purveyor (En----a) has dismal software to drive its Dashboard Widget. There is no way to stop a charge to a postal account if the printer fails to actually print the stamps. The absence of an on/off switch is unforgiveable, but the charges for postage that failed to print are purely fraudulent. The software warns the uset to have enough labels on the roll to satisfy the order, but it doesn't say anything about a possible I/O error between the computer and the printer. I won't print more than one-at-a-time from now on when printing postage. The rolls of dymo stamp and label forms are shipped with a little adhesive sticker to hold down the end of the roll. When you remove the sticker it leaves a little adhesive residue on the first stamp or label in the roll, and on the label immediately under it. Imagine what happens when that sticky residue hits the printer platen on the first print job for that roll! Right: a bunch of accordian-folded labels, unstuck from their backing paper and jamming the printer. How many labels or stamps you lose in this event is purely up to how big a wad of paper it takes to stop the printer, since there is no OFF switch. Sure, you can throw the main circuit breaker for the house, but you'll never get (En----a) to understand that the printer didn't actually print all the stamps the computer said it sent to the printer.

Sucks at supporting MacOS Sierra

By NickZ

from NY

Comments about Dymo LabelManager Thermal Transfer Printer - Label Print:

I have tried all the available software versions but none could find my label manager PNP in MacOs Sierra. The Light version on the printer can, but I cannot enter enter any text more in the program. So I can only print empty labels! Expensive paper weight now....

This does NOT work with all Macs :(

By Little Ricky

from Texas, United States

Comments about Dymo LabelManager Thermal Transfer Printer - Label Print:

I purchased this printer as a replacement for another one that went bad after 3 years. This worked just fine with my Mac until I upgraded my OSX software and now it's basically useless. It is not compatible with Mac OS® X v10.8 "OR LATER" as stated on this site. I don't understand why the info on this page hasn't been updated OR why hasn't DYMO updated the driver/software to make it compatible with ALL Macs. :( Don't waste your money if you are a Mac user with an updated OSX system.

Doesn't work with Mac

By bkponi

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about Dymo LabelManager Thermal Transfer Printer - Label Print:

I've had this labeler for about 5 months. The software it comes with doesn't work. You have to download a new driver. After fussing with it for awhile I got it to work. Then I put it away for several weeks. When I tried to use it again. It no longer worked. I call customer service. They told me to download a particular driver (now I have three). It finally started working again. Just pulled it out again after a couple of months. Software is not longer working. I can print black labels but can't type anything on the label. I even tried downloading new software. Still nothing. The company doesn't seem to put many resources into supporting Mac. Time to move on.

DO NOT BUY - BATTERY ISSUE

By Product is now trash

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dymo LabelManager Thermal Transfer Printer - Label Print:

I have barely used this device but the expensive proprietary battery is dead. Also the device intermittently shows up and then disappears, probably battery related again. Nice overall concept, really poor, poor engineering. I will never buy another product from this company it's a waste of money

Poor battery design

By Alex45

from ZÃ1/4rich, Schweiz

Comments about Dymo LabelManager Thermal Transfer Printer - Label Print:

The printer doesn't work without battery. Despite the fact that it's connected to the PC USB port and it's powered on. If the battery dies, you'll have to spend more than 50% of the total costs to buy a new battery. A no-go.

Does not work well with Macs!

By Casper

from Phoenix, AZ, United States

Comments about Dymo LabelManager Thermal Transfer Printer - Label Print:

Item does not work well with Macs - downloaded all new software from DYMO website and still nothing. Software will not recognize printer and just queues print jobs. Read several other reviews online about a possible fix (unplug and let it sit for 5 mins, then try again) but it didn't work for me after several attempts. Apparently there is a design-flaw with the plugin and it is extremely finicky. I don't have time to deal with a device that is that troublesome. Returned this one and trying another handheld product that does not need a computer.

Frustration and Heartburn

By Trey123

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dymo LabelManager Thermal Transfer Printer - Label Print:

This thing never works when you plug it in. It pops up goes away pops up again you click the software, a 30 second job turns in to 2 hours of googling. I could print labels faster with a hammer and chisel.

I liked it, now I need to replace the battery...

By sbsjsu

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dymo LabelManager Thermal Transfer Printer - Label Print:

I ordered the LabelManger PnP in February 2015 along with labels, but didn't use the unit until September 2015 when I discovered that the labels that I purchased were not for this unit. Beware that not everything that says "D1" is for this label maker. Although that's what is stamped inside of the machine, that is not the model number. Look for LabelManager PnP labels. On to the labels... it took several attempts to figure out how to print from an Excel spreadsheet, but I finally nailed it down. I love not having to manually enter each label, but I was not expecting it to be so complicated. I couldn't explain the process to someone else if I tried. Oh, and one thing I haven't figured out is printing multiple times from the same file. If you are in Import Data and Print, once you hit print, you have to go into Import Data and Print again if there are other labels that you needed to print on a different color tape, for example. The Import window closes and you have to start again. And, then there's the battery... In August 2016, my unit stopped working. I tried a new USB cord and a new USB port. Then, I read the reviews and started to hunt for a battery. The rechargeable battery is listed at approximately 50-60% of the cost of the printer. In retrospect, it was not the wisest label printer choice I could have made. Now to decide if I should buy a new label maker or buy a battery. Dymo, is there a way to make the battery last longer than 1 year?

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
