We owned another labeler made by Dymo and were not very happy with it. The keys were laid out alphabetically rather than QWERTY style and typing felt unnatural. We also could not find any store that carried blank label cartridges - even the store we bought it from (Best Buy) didn't. We had to order them directly from the manufacturer and probably paid more than we needed to.
Although the old labeler still works, we decided to purchase this one. It is a much better product. The keypad is easy to use and the unit has some great features built into it. I like the fact that you can change fonts, or frames and can print on a variety of colors. The labels seem to stick much better than the Dymo brand labels we used before. They adhere to surfaces that I couldn't get cellophane tape to stick to. Almost every office supply or electronic store seems to sell the label cartridges in several colors and sizes.
I only have two negative comments about this unit. First, sometimes it is hard to peel the back off of the label. You have to try to get your fingernail or similar object between the backing and the label and this is often difficult to do. Second, it needs SIX AA batteries to run. If you print a lot of labels you're going to be buying a lot of batteries. I wish that they could have designed it to run off of an AC power source also.
Despite these negatives, I think that this is great product. It works well, is compact, and is reasonably priced.

I love this little machine. It's tiny, taking no space at all to store, and you can easily carry it from room-to-room-to-garage-to-attic-to-basement to label all the stuff you're trying to get organized. The labels make a huge difference in household efficiency, and the process of getting things labeled suddenly becomes efficient itself once you've got this machine. (My one caveat: I, too, find the labels difficult to peel off from the tape, especially on days with high humidity. I'll try the tape-on-table process another reviewer recommended.)
I might add that because I carry this machine everywhere with me, I've now dropped it several times and my kids have knocked it off bookshelves and tables. The extremely rough handling we've given it has had no effect on the machine's operation whatsoever. You just pick up the scattered batteries, stick them back inside, and voila. Keeps on ticking.
Like other reviewers, I specifically chose this machine in preference to the more expensive ones. With something you're going to be carrying around a lot, the smaller the better as far as I'm concerned. And as other reviewers have already pointed out, the tapes are far less costly. This matters because you'll find you go through them fast. I've adopted a number of frugality measures in the kitchen, all of which involve cooking foods ahead of time in bulk and refrigerating or freezing them, and that means labeling. **Lots** of labeling. The labels are easy to remove from plastic containers even after containers have been run through the dishwasher several times with the label left on. If you **want** the label to survive dishwashing, you can count on that, too. I'm also using the machine to label boxes of children's toys and cards, boxes of office supplies, items to be taken to garage sales, etc.

Excellent product! This is one of the first electronic devices that gets my "thumbs up!" within the first day of using it! And it get addicting making labels, for this thing here, that thing there. Fun and easy!
Excellent design, very comfortable to hold in your hand with a good weight/balance [not too heavy, not too light] and good size. The buttons are not too small and the arrangement of the buttons are easily accessible and easy to learn.
Excellent accessories with different types of ink/tapes and sizes! Very good printout of labels, quick and no jamming! and easy to cut. Wonderful smoothness and professional look to the labels. Good stickiness to objects too [plastic, metal, leather, paper], waterproof as well.
I would recommend this 100%, Brother's has created a product that is affordably cheap and easy to use, fun and reliable. Nothing to complain!

I originally planned to get the ... PT-1700, but ended up getting this model instead because of the following reasons:
1. lower price (I can live with being limited to only 3/8" and 1/2" tapes)
2. cheaper consumables (the PT-65 and PT-85 are currently the only two models using non-laminated "M" tapes, which are almost half the cost of laminated "TZ" and "TX" tapes used by all other Brother labelers)
3. more portable
The only thing keeping me from giving this baby a perfect 5 is the lack of an AC adapter jack -- requiring six batteries is a bit much.

I bought this model over others mainly because of its low price (I paid $10 bucks with no rebate hassles). It turned out to be a decent buy but it becomes obvious that the low inital price will eventually be offset by the high price of label cartridges.

*** Plus Points Include ***

- Easy to use though you will have to read the short manual to understand how to change the font, print size, etc.

- Decent size that is portable yet still highly usable

- Good quality print with a reasonable amount of fonts and borders

- Replacement cartridges have a variety of colored labels to chose from.

*** Negative points are: ***

- It does not take laminated labels so the labels are for indoor use only.

- The labels are always printed with a huge gap at the beginning and end so it wastes a lot of label space (and thus it eats up label cartridges).

- The batteries are a real pain to remove because they are staggered on top of each other

- If you print 2 line lables you cannot change the fonts or size

- As other users have mentioned, it is not easy to separate the label from its backing.

All in all this is not a bad label maker for people who need something cheap and easy for the occasional label or 2 but if you are obsessive-compulsive or need to print a ton of labels you are probably better off spending a few bucks more on something that wastes less of its label cartridge.
