Ease of Use

Easy to use alone or with computer only problem is the wasted tape before and after the print without a means to reduce waste. I think by printing several labels(words)one can predetermine space between each individual label.

-Roderick Wallace quote

As I have used this same machine at work for a few years, I am familiar with what it can do and how versital it is. If anyone needs a labeling machine, this one should be on your "must have" list. The only minor problem, it wastes some tape unless you "plan" multiple words and the cut apart manually.

Brother Label Printer PT-2700

by George Chenarides on 3/18/2007

PROS: I always like to "test" a unit for it's ease of use by not reading the manual for details of operation. After I read the initial setup I try to work the units features to see how intuitive they are. This label printer is a 5 Star product! Extremely easy to understand functions, easy to use, and great results. I found it on line for a total of $91.00 at I have not yet setup the computer connection so all of these comments are for its stand alone capabilities. I am hopeful the computer features will be as easy and pleasing. CONS: Only one I am not pleased about. When you select the "minimum" printout it sends out about 1/2" of tape that is cutoff before it prints. A wast of tape I do not understand.

One Slick Product

by John Burrows on 4/14/2008

Brother has always made the best (in my opinion) label makers, but this one goes a step further. Besides doing all the things that you would expect and then some, you can hook it to your computer for practically unlimited creativeness. I captured a company logo and shrank it to fit a 1/2-inch label, then added some text beside it. Even that small, the resolution is remarkable - you can't tell it wasn't done by a professional. I waited a long time to buy a label maker, and I'm glad I found this one. I highly recommend it. Of course, the tapes are a bit pricey, but you can find reasonable deals on ebay.
