Brother PT-2430PC


Some products look so good and work so well that you'll want to come up with a reason to get one even if you don't actually need it. The Brother PT-2430PC ($80 street) is that kind of product.

Portable. Uses batteries or power adapter. Simple setup. Easy to use. Doesn't require software installation

A bit on the slow side

The Brother PT-2430PC prints waterproof plastic labels, letting you use a PC keyboard and screen to design the labels and without needing its software installed on the PC.
