Great Buy

by Dean on 1/15/2014

Mine is for home use so I don't use many of the features. I have used the labeler about 3 weeks and made approximately 50 labels of basically 2 different font sizes. I love it. It is easy to use. It will run off of batteries or the AC Adapter which comes with the machine. If you are a fast touch typist, this machine may slow you down. The keys are small and require more pressure than a pc keyboard (at least I think so). I’m a two finger typist so it doesn’t slow me down at all. The sample labels which came with the machine are approximately 1” width which is twice the size I needed for my application. So after using it for a test drive I purchased other tape. I got it for a great price and love it so far.
