Ease of Use

You can not beat price and free shipping; not even eBay. I bought the label maker b/c my wife wanted it and to label everything with our daughter's name before sending her to daycare. She really loves the label maker. My only complaint, is that the label cartridge runs out fast; so purchase an additional one if you can.

-Leon C. quote

Our church has a HUGE mixer board for the sound system, and it's hard to remember which knobs and sliders control what. With the Brother BT1090's ability to select a smaller font and place it on the side of a label, we were able to put labels into even small open places. We're glad that the batteries seem to last a long time, since it takes 6 AAA's and doesn't come with an adapter in the box.

Works good

on 4/16/2010

Everything seems to work good. Interface could be a little better. Came with a big scratch across the LCD screen, but it still seems to work.

Works Great

Does what it is suppose to do. Overall for the price you can't go wrong with a handheld labeling device like the one above.
