Epson's first entry in the U.S. labelmaker market, the LabelWorks LW-400 is packed with design options. The 14.6-ounce device, which has a full QWERTY keyboard, lets you create and print labels measuring up to three-quarters of an inch in width using a choice of 14 fonts, more than 75 frame styles, and 300 icons. Tapes come in a variety of colors and finishes, including one that glows in the dark. You can store up to 50 label designs on the device. During our test, the two-line backlit display was easy to read, even in a dark room. It took about 15 seconds to print a 2-inch-long label with four lines of print. Cost: $50, plus $17 for a ribbon that produces hundreds of labels
