This labeler is a great thing
November 11, 2013
By Peg1 from Chicago
I waited a while to get a labeler. After all, my primary experience with labelers has been with those things from the 60s that embossed plastic tape; that tape didn't stick well, and the embossing could flatten out... not so good, overall.

Then the Brother labelers came out. I was pretty sure I didn't want a handheld, so I waited around. I also didn't want one that was only usable when connected to a PC; I'm a longtime Mac person, after all. (I do run Windows on my Mac, but I prefer Mac software if it's available.) So I waited around some more.

I decided I was finally ready when the marker "labels" I'd been using rubbed off for about the 50th time. Time to get a real labeling gadget.

I was cruising Amazon, and saw this one. It had great reviews, it's not handheld (although it can operate on batteries, if I need that), and Mac software is coming (OS X 10.8 is available, but I'm on 10.9, and the 10.8 driver doesn't work). Sold... and for now, I'll use the PC software under Windows on my Mac.

This is a great thing. I'm labeling everything I can think of. The labels seem fairly durable; Brother claims they'll make it through the dishwasher, although I haven't tested that (yet). The print is clear, the tape sticks well (even better than I expected), and the print doesn't smudge. I like being able to use all of my fonts, even though the labeler itself comes with a fairly decent collection of fonts and special-purpose labels. It's easy to use (that is, once I read the instructions) standalone and easy to use on the computer. It takes a decent assortment of tape sizes, up to 24mm (just about an inch).

The only thing I wonder about is, why does it chop off a half inch of label tape, then print the label? Seems like a goofy waste of tape, but I'm sure there's a reason for it.

That's a very minor quibble, though, in view of what a good gadget this is. I recommend it highly, for almost any home or small business use.

A Bit of a Challenge, But It Works
April 21, 2013
By BrotherRandahl from Washington State
First Labeler for me other than one of the manual type ones of many years ago. A bit early to write a detailed report, but I found the manual that comes with it, although quite detailed, a bit challenging and not clear in places. I had to call tech support 2 or 3 times to get solutions, but I got them and I always have from Brother. I have 2 of their Printers, also, and they are top notch. I have finally used the Labeler to make some initial labels, ( Letters for my Keyboard Keys, as the decals wore out from my fast and considerable typing. Nothing else has worked in the way of replacement, but white letters on black tape works great and is wearing fine so far. Time will tell, but I can quickly make more if needed. The tape seems to stick well, also. All in all, I am looking forward to using this machine as soon as I figure it out a bit more.....I would say, Go for It!!! SHALOM.....Brother Randahl
