I use the dyme rhino for general work but the dymo XTL500 for more exacting tasks. But was very disappointed when the xtl broke down (sofware in it went tits up) dymo did not want to know. Why you ask? Because the invoice I had from a trade show purchase was not good enough for them. Had a bit of a struggle to get them to sort it and had to wait a few days to get it back. Apart form that the software is good and you can produce just about anything you need for labelling. Of course the xtl is pricey and the label cartridges

Looking on e-bay there is a 10% saving code for the PTE550 wifi connected version, so it's under £150.00 if anyone is interested.

And even though their website says the PTE300VP is in stock they do not have any and not expecting a delivery for at least another month. o_O

What's the eBay code/shop as I'm tempted to get one myself.

It's for use in the office, I print off a laser printer in strips that fit the Hager panel the software is called "Semiolog" very neat, but you need to know the details of the panel to get the correct format, you can also use/print the Hager standard colour labels for the MCB's, make's one look very professional don't you know. :cool:

I just measured the width of mcb/rcd etc, allowed overlap of 1 or 2mm. Then entered the details into the parameters of the software. Jobs a good en. To be fair, I think you'll find all these printers are just rebadged products, which includes the software.

When I said "details of the panel" I should have said model No as in "Hager Delta" thought my original "details" description could be miss-interpreted as layout.

Whichever printer you use remember to set the margin as narrow as possible, otherwise you waste half your expensive label tape in blank space.

On the Brother software the label sometimes appears on the screen with a double boarder, it is best to delete this as it restricts the size of print on the label, also the centre space called the cable size does not seem to bear any relation to diameter, 4mm is enough label to wrap around three 2.5mm cable's
