Consumer review (newegg.com)

Instant love!

 

Got this this thing as a stand in in case our bar code printer system goes out (a $1000 plus Zebra printer) but it's going to get much more use than that. Far exceeded my expectations.

Love this labeler! Tons of label choices... colors, sizes, tamper evident, extra strong adhesive, fat labels, skinny labels, it's got lot's options. Easy to use software that's very flexible. Any font style, size, graphics, it even can integrate with...

Labels are a tiny bit more expensive than some labels and you may have to Google search for the more exotic labels at a good price

Good

 

I looked at Google's shopping reviews before buying, reviews looked good.

Works well, I would recommend this product

Does not come with a power chord, You must use 6 triple A batteries. I don't know if it is mentioned anywhere in the details, I could have easily overlooked it

Use of TP-1280

 

I suggest that Brother make it shorter to save tapes in the next Label Maker generations.

This device is easy to use. I mastered it within 1 hour of use. If you use an AC adapter, you can save a lot of money on batteries

The tap is too long that wastes the tape unecessarily

What do you expect?

 

These work great. At this price, its disposable, so I can beat the snot out of it and not have to worry about it pinging my IT budget. I can't imagine wanting more from a labeller, but then again I don't really put much thought into improving that...

It labels

It doesn't connect to the internet, have an API to Google Maps, or a GPS...it's a labeller, what do you want it to do?!

So-so; not easy to use

 

Otherwise, for the price it's a good label printer. It doesn't seem to jam at all and has worked 100% of the time for me. Although I don't use and abuse it every day.

Spacious keyboard, lots of options, can use different styles of tape, hasn't jammed like some of the other Brothers do

Getting around the options is time consuming - have to constantly scroll through different options to change settings such as font, size, etc. They need some shortcut keys for font size, etc. Not the end of the world, and if I used it every day I might...

Brother Label Machine

 

I love this!!! I now have labels on all my sewing needs and don't have to look through tons of boxes to find what I need for my project

The labels were just a little difficult to peel off the paper, but I do have arthritis n my hands. Most people won't have any trouble

Fun toy

 

I was able to add a picture of myself to a label, that was using the computer interface. It has a lot of potential, the iterface could use a little twicking. I do get a little concerned about how much tape I might use playing with it. Beware it put...
