Made to hold up to everyday use (which, believe me, the definition of “everyday use” is very subjective in the world of professional label printers), the Brother QL-570 has everything that all the other QL-500 series has, like the ability to create high-resolution label images, 2.4 inch wide label printing ability, a 2 year warranty, heavy duty cutter, and easy access to labeling supplies via many consumer outlets.
Plus, it can churn out about one label per second. That’s fast!
Everything that is included with this label printer is good, except for the software. Before getting one of these products to try, I read a couple of online reviews that pointed to how poorly-executed the software is, but I had no idea how ridiculous it would really be.
After trying unsuccessfully to use it to print a simple address label, I had to reroute printing from MS Word to finally get it to work, but, in the printer’s defense, it worked like a charm minus he software
So, bottom line, ditch trying to even use the software and print from a program like Word or OpenOffice.
