When you compare the specs of the Dymo LabelWriter 450 Turbo (1752265) with the Dymo LabelWriter 450 (1752264) there doesn’t appear to be much difference between the 2 models. They both use the same software, they both print at the same resolution, they are the same size, color etc – in fact apart from the word “Turbo” printed on the Turbo model, they look identical.
There are some very important differences though, and you might want to consider them before you choose which one to buy.
Dymo LabelWriter printers all use Dymo’s free DLS software for creating and printing labels. Additionally, since they use standard Windows and Mac printer drivers, you can print to them from virtually any application. More common apps include Microsoft Word and Excel, Microsoft Outlook and Mac Contacts.
LabelWriters all print at 300dpi, and can print simple text, graphics and a wide range of barcodes. Print speed is where the models differ though, with all models except the non-Turbo being capable of printing at around 72 Address Labels per minute (this figure is based on a 4-line address label). The non-Turbo does around 50 Address labels per minute. So that’s the first difference between the LabelWriter 450 Turbo and the non-Turbo. The Turbo is around 40% faster.
The other difference is compatibility with Dymo Stamps. Dymo Stamps is an innovative way for you to print your own postage at home/work without having to line up at the post office to buy stamps. You actually print your postage stamps on your Dymo LabelWriter. The Dymo LabelWriter 450 Turbo supports printing from Dymo Stamps, the non-Turbo model does not.
And that’s it. That’s a quick comparison between the LW 450 Turbo and the LW 450. The Turbo is faster, and it supports Dymo Stamps.

If you need to put just a little bit of identifying information on a CD or DVD, the Dymo Inner Core CD/DVD label (30886 / 120886) is the ultimate label choice. It measures 1-1/3″ in diameter and covers just the inner core of the disc you affix it to.
You can print a variety of information on this label, and even though it is quite small, users print anything from simple text (i.e. “Backup Disc 1”) to more complex printing that can include images and barcodes. We’ve seen these labels being used in Video Stores, home DVD collections, on backups of music CD’s, backups of Movie DVD’s and in large corporate electronic storage libraries.
Barcodes are extremely useful in CD / DVD storage libraries, and there are a number of different barcode symbologies you can print from your Dymo LabelWriter, such Code 39, Code 128, EAN, UPC and QR codes. Even though this label is small, the 300dpi print quality allows for printing small high quality barcodes.
To print on these labels you will need a Dymo LabelWriter. The LabelWriter is an inexpensive label maker that enables you to print labels for a wide range of purposes, such as : Address, Shipping, Filing, Name Badge etc. From around $80 the Dymo LabelWriter is a handy tool to have around the home or office.
