Hands on with the DYMO LabelManager 260P

by Mark R

I’ve had a chance to try out the DYMO LabelManager 360D, and I just got finished trying out the LabelManager 260P, which is sort of a one-handed version of the 360D.

The 260P uses DYMO D1 labels in 1/4″, 3/8″, and 1/2″ widths, and is capable of two lines of text. It is also a Portable and Rechargeable Label Maker, and has a battery that can be recharged at the wall via cord.

The user can choose from 3 fonts and six text styles, and can highlight the text with 8 box styles or underlining. You can also save 9 labels in case you need to use the same text again.

I will have to say that the only improvement I would make is the keyboard. It is not a QWERTY, and so all the keys are in alphabetical order. The number keys are these thin jobs that hover above the letters, and the punctuation and special symbols are two buttons that often require the arrow keys to find what you need. I actually would have preferred a model with smaller buttons, QWERTY keyboard, and individual symbol keys.

However, I think everyone needs a labelmaker every once in a while, and this one is very portable and practical. You should be able to get the DYMO LabelManager 260P for a price of $65.99 on the company website.
