Everything I expected
March 13, 2014
By jschlimmer from Janesville IA
Initially outraged as the manual makes no mention of P-touch Editor or printing labels from a database. After checking the website, I learned that I needed Editor, installed it, and have printed labels from Excel. Total control of what records to print - one record, a range, or all. Not too difficult, easy editing, and I love it! I recommend the PT-2730 connectable, even if you don't think you need to print from a PC. It's a good capability to have in case you or someone you know does eventually need it (you could end up a hero to an organization, family member, or friend).

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.
