The printer determines 2.2 by 5.9 by 5.7 inches (HWD) and weighs 1.2 pounds. It's larger than a typical hand's width, an imprint on the bottom doubles as a finger grip; I had no problem holding the printer in one hand and typing with the other.

As holds true with the Epson LW-400 $29.99 at Amazon, the LW300 is a completely standalone label printer; there's no chance to hook it to a PC if you wished to. The benefit of that is you can print labels anywhere you can bring this ultraportable gadget. The drawback is you're consigned to making use of the little QWERTY keyboard to develop your labels.

The Editors' Choice Brother P-touch PT-2730 ($100 street, 4 stars) runs either standalone or linked to a computer system, as does the Dymo LabelManager 420P ($110 street, 4 stars), though the Dymo's own keyboard is alphabetically organized instead of QWERTY.

Producing labels is simple enough, though it takes some time to obtain utilized to the function secrets and I discovered myself continuously describing the guidelines.
