At that sort of price may be worth it, I have the 550 and think it's brilliant, but do look up the cost of the print cartridges they are not cheap, but they do make your installations look very professional, hand written scrawl on CU's IMO are very amateur, dare I say cowboy. :eek:

The brother printer is a good bit of kit, I’ve just started using the next model and that’s really good.
I tend to get the cartridges off the internet as they’re normally a third of the price of the genuine ones.

Thank you. I missed out when it was half price a few weeks ago on electricfix. Hopefully it'll be on offer again soon (I have £10 and £20 vouchers too so it'll be a right bargain 😀)

I have both 300 and 550W, got the 550W as I wanted to be able to do custom templates and more importantly database and barcode/QR code lookup

Be careful If you buy your cartridges off the internet, check where they are coming from, most are manufactured in China and can take an inordinate time to get here.

I don't know if the 300 has the software interface, but that particular bit of the 500 I find very useful, but it's Windows based so will not work on a Mac unless you have Windows set up to run on your Mac.

I get mine on next day from Amazon.

One of my customers has supplied templates to use which you update the printer via the app, saves a bit of time.

Brother PT-E550WVP
links to the pc or tablet can design labels and store them on the printer and does the job.
can easily make up labels for a fuse board.
its often on offer in places I paid around £120 several months back. toolstation beat other prices by around £30

Both Hagar and Legrand have software for their individual boards, giving the spacing needed to allow labels to be printed, the Brother 550 is ideal for this.
