Excerpt: I bought this to label a few things around the house--mostly boxes of storage, etc. Holy moly, I went crazy! It's very easy to use and very intuitive. I didn't even look at the instruction manual. I just started using it. If there is an issue I do have with it, it's that on either side of the writing on my label is a HUGE amount of label space on either side. I'm assuming it causes one to have to buy more labels...
Excerpt: I have to admit that this product does everything I wanted it to do, and much more. It will create graphics on the label tape, multiple border styles, etc. It can increase/decrease font size, change spacing of characters, print barcodes -- you name it. If you're looking for a highly-capable device and are willing to learn how to use it, it can do anything. However, if you're looking for something that you can take out of the box and make labels, get a simpler product.
Excerpt: This Brother Labeler has really helped me become better organized. I can now find what I'm looking for much quicker. I found it easy to use and know that I will be using it often. I keep finding more uses for it and will definitely recommend it to family and friends. I am sure that when my grandchildren discover I have it they also will be labeling everything they have.
Pros: Bright Colors, Doesn't Fade, Easy To Change, Good Value, Strong Adhesive, Tough
Excerpt: This is a clever little device. It is compact and light. It is very easy to swap out the label tapes for different applications. Even though the keyboard is small, it is in the traditional QWERTY layout, so relatively easy to touch-type. It does, however, have a couple of down-sides: 1) the AC adapter has to be purchased separately, and must be ordered on-line as Staples does not carry it in store; 2) the number of foreign fonts and characters is quite limited.
Excerpt: I now have two of these same model. Haven't let me down yet and one I have had over a year. Also, other models I have had the batteries would die with time and being turned off, like with in a month. Not sure what is different but this one has much better battery life.
Excerpt: Works fine. Like other writers, the unit, at it's SRP, should come with an ac adapter, or the adapter shouldn't be so expensive. One inch of wasted tape on each end of the label is rediculous. Don't misplace the instruction book. This labeler does way more things than most of us need and without the book you won't know how to do any of it. I solved the ac adapter problem by "repurposing" an old 9volt dc adapter.
Excerpt: We were looking for a labeler that would cause our office to look better, more organized yet didn't cost hundreds of dollars. This product was very reasonable priced yet it did all we needed it to do and more...still working great! Easy to use. The set up time was minimal and it has ease of use. We have used it for mailings. We have used it to redo all our file folders and for many other things around the office.
Pros: Easy To Change, Easy to use, Good Value, Works Good
Excerpt: This has been a great labeler for organizing around the house and I particularly like that it has different fonts, so that the labels don't have to have a sterile, institutional look to them. I would have scored it higher but I feel like for the price, it should have included a larger cartridge of tape (not just the sample one). I also would have liked if the packaging showed the fonts.
Pros: Easy to use, Mobile, Variety Of Fonts, Versatile
Cons: Incl Cartridge Too Small, Sample Cartridge Too Smal
