Brother P-Touch PT-9600 Professional Labeling System is rated out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PanditJI from Great Quality I got this labeler because of prior use of co-workers machines. Works well and easy to use. More features than I really have need for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by brileyboy from Still the best out there I have had a ton of label makers...even the newer ones and none compare to this model. This printer really prints logos amazingly! Text on all the other brother labelers are great but the images on this are fantastic. Even with grayscale items. This printer also will print all the way to the edge of the label. The others need more margin but when you load this printer in your profile from the software it will allow for more print area. Love the half cut feature. I really wish brother would make a new version of this with high print resolution and wireless capability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dduff617 from solid "pro" level machine, but expensive machine is very "substantial" - built for heavy use. keyboard is neither rubber membrane nor little plastic calculator buttons, but instead is a real full-travel keyboard - something you just don't see much any more. resolution is double that of the normal p-touch consumer-grade printers, which means you can print sharper-looking labels. you can print very fine print and still it be legible. while the machine's design feels 10+ years old, this is not as bad as it sounds, since the basic functions of printing text, symbols, etc. are solid and you can always use the USB connection and brother label software if you need to do something really non-standard, including stuff like company logos. (i've only used mac version). it has better than average support for cutting labels. more convenient and saves tape. can cut through tape but leave backing uncut, which is very handy. can split backing to make labels easier to peel. prints up to 36mm (1.5") wide labels, which i find handy occasionally (most go only up to 24mm or less). unit has lots of bells/whistles - native ability to print barcodes, insert date/time stamps, generate serial numbering, memorize frequently-printed labels, etc. i rarely use these, but i can see they might be valuable for office/lab/warehouse applications. supports rotated and "rotate and repeat" printing - i use this a ton with brother's "flex-id" tapes for labeling cables. it's ability to show you a preview of what you are about to print is to be kind, "poor". for basic text labels, this is not a major issue. for fancier labels where you're using a laptop with p-touch software, this is not an issue. but it can be a pain for the middle ground, where you're trying to use some of the more sophisticated features on the native interface, multi-line labels, constrained sizes, etc. a more modern design would provide an LCD screen with a real "preview" mode. takes rechargeable batts (good), but batts are old tech - ni-cad or maybe ni-mh. replacement battery costs more than most p-touch printers! it looks like they could have made it support off-the-shelf AA batteries as an option, but it doesn't. a/c charger is bulky/awkward - with a substantial "brick" and cables on each side - not something you want to have to carry to a job site. overall, machine is very good but needs a 21st century update, mainly with improvements to display and battery. (though it looks like my unit will be going strong for another decade or more). it's hard to justify the cost (5x or more compared to other models) unless you really need the pro-grade features. likes: + feels like "pro" machine - i.e., something you could use 20x/day for years. + great print quality with higher-than-standard resolution. + ability to use p-touch software & USB for special/complex jobs. dislikes: - dated interface, primitive display. - unit is pretty big, heavy, and bulky - even worse with a/c adaptor. - display is a very "90's"-style LCD. - mediocre battery/charging system, super-expensive batts. - super expensive.
