wastes tape

un happy labble user!, Staples
13 December 2012
  • Excerpt: I contacted company and they indicated 'too bad' that's the way it works. I seriously want to return it! The machiune uses 3/4 inch of expensive tape to 'get ready' then prints lable 2 inches long (that was what I wanted.) But to waste 3/4 inch every time? thats rediculous!
  • Pros: Compact Size
  • Cons: Difficult To Use, I Contacted Company And G, Works Poorly

Worthless

buzz off, Staples
27 September 2010
  • Excerpt: CAnnot install this product which apparently is designed only for use with Windows Vista (don't get me started on Vista!!!). I scrapped Vista long ago bacause it's a piece of junk. This product is totally worthless to me.

Don't Waste Your Money

LittleBitE, Staples
12 August 2009
  • Excerpt: The excessive use of tape BEFORE EACH label prints makes this NOT a good choice. It waste about 1" of blank tape with each print. This is unacceptable and when I spoke to the rep about it she said that there was nothing I could do about it. It seems as if Brother as built is a nice way to keep people buying expensive label tape. I suggest that you buy the Dymo Label Writer machine. It is about $20.00 more but it does not waste tape or jam as easy.
  • Pros: Saves space
  • Cons: Excessive Tape Usage, Jams Easily, Loud
