However, the advantage of Dymo Connect lies in its ease of use. On one hand, Dymo Connect provides some special printing templates like 30277 to help you print 2-up labels, such as price tags. On the other hand, designing labels with Dymo Connect feels very smooth.

Compare with Brother QL-1110NWB
The Brother QL1110NWB stands out as a highly popular label printer.
How does it compare to the Dymo Labelwriter 4XL Printer?
Despite both devices having a default resolution of 300 dpi, the Brother QL1110NWB beat the 4XL in printing speed. Working exclusively with its own label line, Brother delivers professional-looking, die-cut labels in less time.
Additionally, Brother's generic labels, similar to Dymo's, offer an advantage. Brother labels come with their own cartridges, featuring the "auto-pick" feature for quicker and easier label loading. The built-in cutter further enhances efficiency in the labeling process.
Different Label Version- US & International
If you're considering purchasing the Dymo LabelWriter 4XL printer, it's important to note that there are two versions of this model: the US version and the international version. These different versions determine the label series number. For instance, 4x6 inch labels are named 1744907 in the US version and S0904980 in the international version.
These two printer versions require different label sensors. The US version relies on index holes between labels as the sensor to help the printer identify each label. On the other hand, the international version requires both holes and black sensor marks on the backing paper.
Thanks to Betckey's product department, all Betckey labels designed to replace Dymo labels include both index holes and black sensor marks. This ensures compatibility with your printer, regardless of the version.
