The Dymo Labelwriter 400

Labelwriter 400The Dymo Labelwriter 400 is without a doubt the greatest thing since sliced bread. (What was the greatest thing before sliced bread?) Seriously, this thing will save you time and ensure your mailings get out promptly. I don’t use it to print postage – I just use it to save myself from the tedium of having to hand write an address on an envelope. It’s a small thing, but it makes a big difference.

The other interesting thing I found was that I was using this device in parallel with (rather than instead of) my Brother PT-1950 P-touch Labeler, which prints a much smaller label that’s ideal for labelling file folders. I was surpised to see the 1950 is not stocked by Amazon anymore; it has been replaced by the Brother PT-80 P-touch Electronic Labeling System.

What prompted me to write this review was a nag email from Dymo to review their product on Power Reviews. I like the idea of Power Reviews; having a third party host your product testimonials is probably perceived as more free of tampering than hosting them yourself. And the fact that you can shop through their review interface should yield more conversions than forcing shoppers to go to another site to read reviews, then hit the back button 100 times to return and buy. Their story and partner information are very impressive; this is a site you should watch.
