I bought this because I thought it would be fun to have but in the back of my mind I was kind of expecting I would bore easy of it the way many do when buying something like this. However this little gadget is awesome. It's super easy to change out the ribbon so I can jump between colors (bought a combo pack of labels with it) so easy that I am not limited in style. I researched various brands of label makers to be sure I got the best quality. This brand had the highest ratings. One of the things people focused on besides the variety of fonts since you can hook it up to your pc and use any font you want was that this brand wasted the least amount of Label. It leaves about a half an inch on either side of the writing. The only part that is a little annoying is the extra steps you have to take to even add a period let alone other symbols (which they do give you a very decent variety to choose from) If they made it easier to use punctuation It would be a perfect gadget

Some things are not worth saying as they are what they are. This device is an absolute gem. I've purchased two of them: for work and home. I will be getting one for my kid to keep him away from mine!

      I just received the Labelmanager and found it very useful. Anyone who has experience using a computer can certainly navigate the software or printer controls.

      works great

      Comments about Dymo LabelManager 280 Label Maker:

      I have had no problems with this labeler.  Instructions for use without a computer could be better, but the unit is pretty intuitive.   Tape is easy to apply, rechargeable battery and no AC makes the unit small, portable and easy to use.

      Very easy to use, have no problem to download the software from Dymo website. Also, we can use any font from PC and Mac, and even can type in a different language. The label looks clean and has no printing jam at all. Highly recommended!

      Comments about Dymo LabelManager 280 Label Maker:

      Device works- it prints labels. The label tape does not exit the device rather it rolls it self up inside the device, wasting tape. The recommended software will not download to my Windows 7 computer.

      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.
