Rated 5 out of 5�by ocalakid55 Awesome label maker
For years I used the P-Touch Label maker and decided because I'm on my desktop computer more and more these days that i would treat myself to a Label maker that allowed me to display on screen the label , size plus add characters and symbols like Chinese symbols , all from my computer and then print the label quickly and error free . No more wasted tapes printing out what i thought I had typed. This unit sits neatly next to my desktop screen within easy reach . The only fault would be not having a Shortcut on-screen so I don't have to hunt it down among my other programs . But anyway I love this Label Maker .

Much more versatile Label Maker than the PT-1800 stand-alone keyboard type. Software is very capable and flexible. Numerous fonts and symbols. Completely scaleable. Easy to use. WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) on you computer screen. Very please. Recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5�by Docc Could be better....
Works best on Windows machines, since a lot of functions are not available on an Apple machine. That said, the instruction sheet is like a large map, and is poorly written. Very difficult to find information on how to use the P-touch software, not the P-touch lite (very confusing, to say the least).
I finally got the labeler running on my Windows 8 machine, after giving up getting it to run on my iMac. You need to download the software users guide from the disk included with the labeler if you are going to use the labeler on a Windows machine. This is so you can use the many features that the labeler is capable of. Why Brother made this so complex and confusing is beyond me. Anyway, once it is set up and running with the full p-touch software package, it really is a nice labeler with lots of nice features. Still a little difficult setting up unique labels, but it still can be done with a little patience.
Brother really needs to run some user panels on new products before they introduce them into the marketplace. A lot of the issues I found with this labeler could have been avoided, if the software manual, and a better installation guide was included with the package. There is no reason in this day and age for Brother to have a customer search around for information on how to properly install their labeler.... everything should be plug-and-play and not require the user to have expert computer skills to use or install this labeler. My Brother laser printers were a breeze to install, sure seems to me that Brother could do as well for their labeler purchasers. I love my other Brother products!

Rated 5 out of 5�by Vlberr33 Great Labeling Accessory
Extremely efficient label printer. Sits unobtrusively on my desk next to the monitor. Just press the on button and the app shows up on my dashboard. Open the app, format the label & hit print. Couldn't be simpler! Ignore/forget the printer & it automatically shuts off. Then it just sits and waits for its next use. Purchased this model to replace a stand alone P-touch labeler. Much easier to use.
