Works, but documents are really bad.
December 4, 2011
By DougInNC from North Carolina
I unpacked the PT-1290 today after a good deal grabbed me on Black Friday. It works. Making settings and typing text is a slow process. Print speed is adequate. I liked that two tapes came with the labeler. Would have liked the power adapter to be included rather than just working from (my) batteries. I did like the unexpected feature to save up to 9 labels for later use, either more prints or editing later for changes.

The odd thing is that none of the packaged documents identify this as an existing Brother model, nor is one of the two included tapes anywhere in the package documentation. So favor yourself by printing the list of supplies for this model from the web site.

The key question, of course, is whether it will still work a year from now, but that is the warranty period so there is hope!

Terrific labeler
November 28, 2011
By MattTheTech from Tulsa, Ok
I have had many label makers. I dont have a particular preference for brand, I just need it to work when I need it. This has excellent features and makes it right every time. Bulky for transporting around but it works great so its worth it!!

Not worth it
November 27, 2011
By cole19 from Clinton Iowa
Very disappointed with the machine. It is difficult to use, with unclear directions. I was able to get some labels printed from the original roll of tape that came with the machine, but have wasted money purchasing refill cartridges. The feed doesn't work and nothing will come out. I have tried several times to load the cartridge and get this item to work. Goes through batteries quiet quickly.
