I purchased this printer to replace a DYMO label printer, as DYMO has limited support for Windows Vista and no support for Vista x64. Brother, to its credit, has great support for Vista x64. I had troubles using the printer to creat shipping labels after installing the driver, finding that when printing from either Word or WordPerfect I received 2x2 inch squares rather than the 2.3x4 inch rectangles I specified, which resulted in my labels being cut in half. I called Brother's tech support line and, after being on hold for literally two seconds I reached a friendly and helpful support representative. Unfortunately, the good experience then ended, as I was told that Brother only supported the use of this printer with Brother's proprietary label printing software. Since I wanted to use the printer to print documents directly from Word and WordPerfect, I was told that I was out of luck as that was an unsupported use (except to the extent I used the Word plugin that comes with Brother's software). A printer that can be used with only one software product is of very limited use and Brother's failure to prominently disclose this fact is inexcusable.

-Dan quote

This is a great tool for the price. Set up was a breeze although it took a couple of tries to get the labels in correctly (the business end of the label should point down). Once loaded, the software was easy to use. I imported my logo and was making black and white labels in no time. They print quickly and offer a professional-looking alternative to hand-written shipping labels. You can also print on multiple label sizes by swapping out one roll of labels for another.

Brother Labeler

by Jack on 6/28/2008

I've only had the labeler about 2 weeks and have used it serveral times. It's worked like it's supposed to each time. A lot more convenient for a shipping label than just making one with MS Word on plain paper and taping it on. I should have had something like this years ago. Read More
