Granted, this is no metal tool. It must be treated with care & not forced. I labeled an entire set of shipping tubes, containing machine shop tools with their fractional sizes. I am happy to find a product which does not rub off or smudge & is easy to read. Even leaves a little tag to peel off the backing. So, treat the DYMO gently, and you will enjoy the value of the product. I wish they made a pro version with metal parts.

The letters are w a y t o o w i d e l y s p a c e d; in addition, they randomly move up and down on the tape, so things don't line up horizontally. I bought one in the early 1990s which was much, much better. They shouldn't have tried to "build a better mousetrap" -- it was a simple, well-designed device; there was no need whatsoever to re-design it. In terms of being loud and the labels having poor adhesion -- that's been the same since these were introduced over 50 years ago, so I was already expecting that when I bought this new one. But the issues with the letter spacing really bothers me. I want Dymo to send me one of the old ones!

    Comments about Dymo Xpress Pro Labelmaker:

    Not sure why DYMO is still making/selling the guns when they no longer make the 3D tape to go with it???? The link on this site for 3D Embossing Tape does not work - called the corporate office was told that unfortunately this product has become obsolete... The tape is hard to find online with office supply companies and is becoming very expensive do to supply and demand.

            Comments about Dymo Xpress Pro Labelmaker:

            Whoa the production quality control must have improved since the first review of this product! I just bought mine in December 2012 and can't be happier with it. True, spacing is wide, and there's the occasional misalignment (but nothing as atrocious as the "canned goods" example from the other review). Like another customer I bought it for the nostalgia factor and need for something that doesn't require batteries and electronic displays. I loved mine some 30+ years ago and recently was yearning for one of those again. I don't know why so many customers are upset about the large spacing and occasional misalignment - I remember that's how things were with my old one 30+ years ago. Anyhow I love my new one. And there *is* a space bar on my daisy wheel - next to the scissors.

                  Let me join the ever growing list of dissatisfied buyers. Cheap it may be
                  but that does not excuse Dymo for deliberately misleading buyers. I bought this model because the illustrated examples on the packaging show neat and tightly spaced lettering. The truth is anything but. The letter spacing is random and about one and a half to two times the illustrations. Shame on Dymo.

                        I used these labelers back in the 1970s, and found them very useful to identify personal belongings, notebooks, file folders, etc. Then the product disappeared from view for decades. I just found it again at my local store, and bought it both for the nostalgia factor and because it, like a mechanical typewriter, can still be useful to me. It works just like I remembered it: turn the wheel, and press the trigger. There was no such thing as a user manual in the package, but it wasn't really difficult to understand how the thing works. The labels are still like I remember them - strong and durable. This thing gets the job done, creates sturdy plastic labels, and is so old-fashioned that the labels really stand out.

                        Works great for what it is. Bought mine a year ago and never had a problem with it. Not sure why so many people had so many problems with theirs. I've already went through about 16 rolls of labels, and it still works great.

                            The old Dymos usef to be great, but the new / current ones do things like cut clean through so you can't seperate the labels, or fall out of alignment. This makes the consumer shell out MORE MONEY for higher quality "digital printers" and accessories to a possible "sibling company", making even more money for Dymo Corp. and their subsidieries. DON'T FALL FOR IT! keep taking the unit back until you get one that works!

                              Consistently jams when going from letter 'e' to letter 'r'. Sometimes when it cuts the label, it cuts off the easy-peel strip. It doesn't have a blank space option.

                                I bought one of these for scrapbooking earlier this week and couldn't even get it to work straight out of the package. I couldn't get a single label to print because they cut and stayed right where they were inside the machine. I'm returning it tonight and getting a better model.

                                I've always liked this type of product for making quick custom labels. But sadly, the ones available now are much more difficult to load, they have too much spacing between the letters, and the spacing and letter height is very inconsistent. But the worst part is they last about as long as a battery in a flashlight. Do they have to be built that poorly? I'd be willing to pay more to get a higher quality product from Dymo, but they don't seem to offer one.

                                        I have the model before this one & when I was ready to cut off the label, I just squeezed the white handle. That would be the white handgrip handle on this one. Squeeze it firmly to cut the label off. Hopefully this is the same mechanism as the one I have & this helps you.
