Summary: If you don't need the type of sophisticated labels that a computer-connected label maker can produce, the Brother Brother P-touch PT-D200 (Est. $40) is a stand-alone label maker with great versatility of its own. User reviews say the hardware is durable, but one complaint surfaces regularly: Like all Brother label makers, large margins at the beginning and end of each label means expensive label material is wasted, particularly if you print short labels one at a time.
Pros: Easy to use, Loaded with features, Lots of label options
Cons: Wide label margins waste expensive tape, Some find label backing hard to peel off, Doesn't print magnetic labels
