Impressive labeler
March 30, 2012
By Lobod80
Great compact labeler with easy to use software preloaded in the device, just plug in USB and ready to go on any computer - very portable. Labels print great, one line or two with clipart, if so desired. Got the unit at a great price, couldn't be happier. Yes, a bit excessive on the lead in/out, but chain printing (multiple labels in one printing) helps. I installed the higher featured standalone software too, but don't bother with it and just use the built-in software, which meets all my needs.

Great Label Maker
September 21, 2011
By KansasTom from Wichita, Kansas
The PT 1230 PC I purchased was a refurbished one that I bought from a closeout firm. I love this thing. Not only did I get it for 25% of new cost but it is also better than the Dymo I have been using. I am so sold on this unit that if and when it ever does quit working I would buy a new one in a heartbeat.

The only downside is the battery drain. I put 6 new batteries in the unit and after 20 or so labels I had to replace the batteries. I solved that problem by purchasing an AC adapter.

So much easier
September 18, 2011
By JBatDCA from Washington, DC
Very handy, more convenient than the handheld units. Intuitive operation and the ability to save templates as PC files. Only drawback is the excessive tape leader and trailer.

So-Far-So-Good
July 30, 2011
By BigEd from TTown USA
Haven't used it that much so far, but like what I see. I love the quality of the product and the labels it can produce. The price was right. A couple of cons; 1- Tape is still quite expensive. And 2- The wasted 3/4" leader on single labels.

Response from Brother

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.
