Well Done!
February 21, 2011
By Chuck from Toledo, OH
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.

Major improvement
February 21, 2011
By ocd1 from Royersford, PA
'Had been using a Brother PT-320 for about 15 years & saw this on sale at a local office supply store (while pricing replacement tapes). Considering that it included a 1" starter tape & an AC adapter (the 320 didn't), it was a great buy!

The 320 worked fine, but with the various shift & function keys; fairly complicated setup each time; & small, unlit, difficult-to-read, one-line screen; it was cumbersome to use. Enter the 2370 with a large, bright screen; computer-like keyboard; & interconnected computer software. What an improvement! It & the included software were virtually intuitive to use.

The additional font availability using computer fonts was great! Font styles & sizes can be mixed on any given label, previewed on the computer, & printed out on the 2370. It will stop you if you are trying to do something that won't work, so you don't waste tape.

I purchased this for personal use, but for a business it seems to offer even many more possibilities with integrated, pre-formatted labels having business-related functions.

Not only has it been practical to use, but a bit of fun as well! It's been useful for file folders; file drawers; workshop parts drawers; all the electrical plugs in various power strips; various power adapters in surge protectors; USB plugs in hubs; telephones for various rooms; CD & DVD files; multiple, specialized battery chargers; even labels for the 26 drawers in a roll-top desk; etc, etc.

BTW, my old 320 has been given away & is still in use.

Note: Internet pricing for replacement tapes can be much better (about 35% less) than local stores, so you might want to plan ahead so you don't run out like I did, even though this purchase was the fortunate result.

Easy to Use and Easy to be Creative

By LSMs from Boston
Works very well, can easily connect to a pc to download images and apply to labels. Up and running in minutes. Label cartridges may be a little pricey but produces a lot of labels.

Good Value Works Great
February 19, 2011
By Stevef731 from Chicago, IL
Purchased this item more than a month ago and I have been on a labeling frenzy since then. I love the fact that it works on batteries and comes with the ac adapter. I installed the software on my Windows 7 PC with no difficulty. I have not needed to use the it connected to the PC yet. I did test it on the PC though and it works fine. Overall the machine works well and is simple and intuitive to use.
