This is a nice labeler from both the Desktop and Portable use. PC Setup was very simple. Use of PC can be faster making a label with special requirements than using the keyboard.
The Large Display is wonderful.
Pros: Large easy to read display, Nice funtion key layout, Small and light weight enough for portable use, Many pre-loaded label templetes like cable/wire label.
Cons: No multiable print count of same label using keyboard, Always cuts beginning of tape when using small margin function on multiple label prints.
Still waiting to see if an optional carry case will be made available and if the cost will be reasonable.
All in all, a nice labeler.

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.
