Brother QL-710W review

 

This new label printer from Brother connects to a wireless network, although you'll need a PC to configure it. Once set up you can install Brother's software to print labels from PCs on the network, or download free label printing apps for Android or...

A Thermal Label Printer : Brother QL-710W

 

When I think of Brother my thoughts go towards inkjet and laser printers but the company does have another printer string to its bow with a thermal Label Printer.

While most printers are generally regarded as multi-purpose devices carrying out a range of printing tasks as they churn out documents of different types with the occasional photo tossed in for good measure, there are one or two types of printers...

Brother P-touch 18R

 

Having recently tested an entry level labelling machine ( P-touch 55 22/8/04) aimed at the younger market here I get involved with a larger machine that has even more functionality.

Easy to install

 

Easy install with Print server on a server network. Users found easy to use for the most part. However, the express add-in on P touch 5 does not work well with Office 2010 or on windows 7 pro 32 bit. Had to remove add-in as it conflicts with mail merge...

Great Labeler!

 

I wish that Brother would come out with a Mac version of their software.

This label is great! The rechargeable battery makes it very reliable. I have several other Brother P-touch Labellers but this one is my favorite. It interfaces with the software very well. The software is a little bit limited, but it is much more than...

The only real Con to this product is the limited text sizing options on the labeller itself. You only have Small Medium and large on the unit itself, but you can do infinite sizes on the computer with the software

Great Labe Machine

 

I purchase this after I purchased a new Laptop with Windows 8 and I also purchased a new all in one Brother printer. I did have to call customer service to help with the Label Maker because I have Windows 8 and needed the Editor installed on my laptop....

Great label maker

 

I was pleased by the small size and the number of features in the unit. The menus are easy to follow and it prints quickly and cuts automatically. For remote use their should be a battery option to use standard AAA batteries, but the rechargeable...

Ultimate Label Maker

 

The PT-18R is the ultimate in label making and convenience. While tethered via USB cord to a computer, any of your computer's fonts can be used via the enclosed Brother print software. The printer stays conveniently located - and charging - ready to be...
