Easy to Use
November 25, 2012
By amtrakfan54 from Portland, OR
Easy to set up, and easy to produce labels. I especially like the AC adapter plugin feature for those "marathon sessions". I do model railroading in N scale, and there is always something to label:town names, switches, wiring, etc, to lend clarity to what we're looking at. Sure beats guessing, especially when it comes to electrical wiring. I like that it has a "Cable" format setting for marking wires. Anything to lend clarity to a spaghetti of wires is a good thing.

PT1090
November 25, 2012
By Cherylynn from Ohio
I puchaed two PT1090, one for personal use and one for work. I am having difficulty with both of them. One has some kind of insect inside on the screen and doesn't advance the tape. The other doesn't advance the tape and the cutter no longer works. I have not had them very long and am disappointed in the quality. I cannot get to the "local" service center and will probaly purchase a labeler from another company.

Works great but not really user friendly
October 8, 2011
By Sabugs from San Antonio TX
I bought this because it looked simple to use and had just enough features to suit my needs. It worked great but I had some problems figuring out spacing and how to get the best use of the amount of label tape. It seemed like there is a lot of waste and I was never able to figure out how to make it better. The directions are not very clear in general. I'm not unhappy with it, just a bit disappointed.

Response from Brother
November 2, 2011
Most TZ labels have a clear laminate top layer. This durable laminate helps the label withstand abrasion, fading, moisture and chemicals, providing a crisp, readable image. The process of adding this laminate layer results in a leading edge margin of blank space. Using "full" margins will result in a label with centered text, but with blank space on both sides. You may be able to reduce the total amount of blank tape by choosing a different margin setting, or by using the chain printing function.
