TOY BOX: Label the Turbo a hit for order-seekers

If you derive great pleasure from organization, DYMO's LabelWriter 330 Turbo is for you. Even for those with just a normal level of appreciation for order - unlike myself - I still recommend it.

The Turbo is essentially a mini-printer designed to make labels. It sits on your desktop and connects to the computer through a USB or serial port. (No more running to the network printer to manually feed label sheets before coworkers print something.) Through the included software, users can personalize labels by adding graphics, changing fonts, or including date and time. There is a built-in database that saves addresses or previously made labels to avoid ever having to retype. An icon also appears on standard applications so labels can be printed directly from Microsoft Word, Outlook, and Palm Desktop. Additionally, it runs on a thermal print head, so there's no toner, ink cartridges, or ribbon. The only replacement supplies you'll ever need to buy are labels. The verdict: If you love organization, you'll love the 330 Turbo. Any questions? Write us at toybox@prweek.com.
