Good Labels, Awkward Keyboard

 

I got this on a NewEgg deal for $9.99 free shipping, I got it as a second labeler to keep in my toolbox and I didn't want to spend a lot of money. Next time I need a P-Touch, I will spend more money for a better keyboard layout.

Brother makes great quality labels, this unit is no exception

Keyboard layout is 6 rows of 5 keys - NOT QWERTY ; This makes typing labels a bit of a headache, and it is not easy to make labels quickly

They give out the labelers at a lose so you will buy their refills. Check out the prices of refills before buying.

Came free with a HDD. Works as advertised

I wish refills were cheaper

Easy set up, easy to use, excellent quality results

Little large considering the size of the tape. New tapes are expensive (but they last a while)

Consumer review by:

Great deal !

 

Thank goodness NewEgg ships to U.S. Military overseas APO AP boxes and fast for being in Japan. Love you NewEgg!

Cheap, writes on two lines, many different colors of labels you can buy for this, no power cord needed. Clear keyboard, many symbols, preview option, etc

Replacement tapes are expensive, but that is how they make their money, same as cell phones. No power cord, but hey at least they tell you what volts to buy or steal from another product to use, so go get a power cord and you're all set

Consumer review by:

Needs expensive tape & batteries

 

It is cheap and fun

Needs a big power supply, or lots of AAA batteries ; It doesn't come with much label tape ; New label tape costs more than the printer

Consumer review by:

Good Product

 

As mentioned, lots of label waste after time, not sure what label cartridge costs as it came with a sample cartridge and I have not looked up what cartridges cost.

Very nice key layout, multiple fonts and sizes available. prints nice clear labels. Have used to label wall outlets, hard drive enclosures, price was very good as well as great Newegg shipping

Only comes with a sample label cartridge, not sure how many labels I can get on it. When printing labels, there is a gap of 1 inch before the text is printed and 1 inch after. So for every label you print you use an additional 2 inches of label that...

Cool

 

Cheap, small, great keyboard layout

Can't seem to shrink the margins up so not so much label is wasted, like another reviewer stated it prints 1inch b4 and after text. Waste of label if u ask me. Sample cartridge was also a con, but for the "special" price i got it at I can;t complain...

Have contacted Brother, but they have not yet responded.

Good features and price

Dead on arrival. Costs more to ship it back for an exchange. Local authorized service center refused to fix it claiming that it was not worth their effort
