To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased these as the supposedly "compatible" off brand ones, are not compatible with actual Dymo machines. And that's because Dymo use a DRM system, which by the looks of it, is some form of magnetic ink printed on the back of every label. So, of course Dymo charge more than printer manufactures do for ink, for small rolls of thin card stock. And it is thin. That's probably the worst thing about these, is just how thin the cards are. The off brand ones are marginally thicker and it's noticeable. They feel sturdier. These print nicely, and do what they're supposed to. Marked down due to the rubbish DRM that Dymo use and how thin they are.
Bought these directly from Amazon.au in September 2018 when they were priced under $12. At that price they were good value for money instead of typically being overpriced in Australia. I've been using generic labels due to the markup in Aus and don't see any worthwhile difference other than a branded box on the Dymo product. It's odd the price more than doubled after I bought them.
