Excerpt: I had previously reviewed another label maker by Dymo which is plugged into the USB port of your computer. Using built-in software, you could create and print labels from your PC. I also made a snarky comment about handheld labelers and needing to be an expert texter. The P-touch 1290 label maker from Brother is one such label maker and I take back my comment about being an expert texter.
Pros: Lightweight, Easy to use keyboard, Versatile, Portable, Good price
Cons: Fancier labels and extra images, accents and icons can get a little tricky to produce, Comes with instruction sheet that takes a little time to digest
