DYMO will continue to offer the DYMO 4XL desktop printer, which does not require the use of their "Automatic Label Recognition" system and proprietary labels. Using the 450 series, like the 4XL, over the 550 will allow you the option to continue to use a variety of LabelValue brand compatible labels at a fraction of the cost.
