Excerpt: I purchased this to replace an older P-touch that was battery powered. My main goal was to have a labeler with AC power. By purchasing the PT-2730, I got that and the bonus of connectability with my PC which greatly enhances what I can use it for.
Excerpt: I purchased this item to do multiple labeling projects and it is great. After reviewing several brands the PT-2730 was ranked the best among the label making machines. The reviews were correct. I also liked the fact that Brother had multiple color label tape available for this machine.
Excerpt: Excellent label maker. Almost didn't purchase it because some reviews stated that it cuts & wastes a half-inch everytime you print. They didn't read the instructions very well because that's not entirely true. If you print a series of labels (they can all be different), only the first label gets the extra cut. Then when you know you're on your last label, turn off "chain-printing".
Excerpt: The Brother P-touch PT-2730 is a quality labeling system that easily connects to a personal communter and prints easy-to-read labels. The P-touch software is reasonably intuitive and provides considerably variety across a wide range of labeling applications.
Excerpt: I love this labeling system. It's the best one I've had yet! I have had many others in the past and none have worked as easy as this one. You have many different fonts to select from as well as different font sizes. Not only that, there is a selection of different size and color tapes to choose from which allows us to label different bins for different areas of our business. In the past I was only able to label with the same size and color.
Excerpt: This label maker is great, and works from both battery and plug in. The ability to print tall labels (1") is really handy when needing multiple lines of text, or a border to make something stand out. It can hook to a computer via USB, but I haven't used that but once. It might be handy if it can pull data from a spreadsheet for something like serial numbers or whatever.
