Customer Reviews

The product is great and very easy to use.
Joe
The first worked fine but after a year kept saying battery low even though I put in new batteries.
ANDREW
Refills are widely available and reasonably priced for the amount of labels you get.

----- Update 1/20/12 --------

I've owned this for about a year, and I actually just purchased an extra one for my office. So far, this label maker has done a fantastic job.

Update on battery life:
I'm actually on just my second set of batteries in the year I've had it, so overall, I am quite pleased. Per my original review, I use Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable NiMH batteries. After my first few weeks of label making, I would say I've been using it to print a few labels once every 2-3 weeks or so. Sometimes, it's a little more frequent than that, but not often. The label maker STILL flashes the Low Battery! warning after every single label, but I always ignore it, press some button, and keep printing. Hasn't failed me yet.

Quality of labels:
Still the same, typical label quality. Yes, there's quite a bit of excess unused label that gets printed, but I suppose this is just a fact of label making. Not very efficient, and somewhat wasteful, but what can you do? I use the labels often for items in the refrigerator and freezer, and for this purpose, the print and the labels themselves have held up well, especially considering the cold temperatures. They're easy to peel off when I'm finished, and leave no sticky residue.

Overall, it has been a reliable and useful purchase.

----- Original review -------

I bought this labeler a few weeks ago. I wouldn't exactly call it the most compact thing I've ever held, but it functions well and has plenty of label options. Instructions were easy to understand, and I was printing my first labels within 5 minutes of unboxing it, even without really going through the instructions. I won't go into too much more detail on the functions, since they are pretty standard.

I got this shipment within it's estimated delivery date, and it is very easy to use and very convenient! I used this to label some of our bottles on the spice rack - the letters are very clearly printed out (with the small font, you can actually print out two lines of text), and the entire process was very simple, I didn't even need a manual to figure out how to do basic printing of labels (I don't even remember if it has a small booklet for the manual). The label itself holds well.

The device is very compact, lightweight (like a kid's toy), yet doesn't look like it's easy to break. It has a custom frame that you can change anytime you want, although I don't really care about these colorful plates as much. Vendor should've included a refill label cartridge instead. :)

I recommend this product for those who just want a basic labeling tool with preprogrammed patterns for small art projects and such. This item doesn't have too much to offer, but it works for a simple person with simple needs. I'm pretty pleased with it!

This is a great product but I wish it had an option where you could plug it in the wall instead of needing batteries.

Pros: inexpensive gadget,works great, clean lines, not too big, takes 4 AAA batteries, has cool styles like shadows and bold, has cute symbos
Cons: expensive labeling refills, writing is very small, uses too much extra tape at the ends. labels very hard to unpeel unless you have long talons (nails)

I am a very organized person so I got this at Staples for $15 at staples (on sale) and so far it works great. I have been labeling like a madwoman since I got it. I have labeled all my electronics chargers, my pet food/misc. items, my tv/dvd cords, my plastic drawers, and my electronics so far and I haven't even had this labeler for a day! My biggest complaint is that the writing is a big small unless you supersize it. It was pretty easy to figure out, but I did have to skim the manual first. I wouldn't use this one for my business, but it's great around the house.

I bought this model based on resolution and variety of label colors and characters. I could print FOUR (really, 4 labels) and now I have an useless piece of plastic (yes, it's all plastic).
It stopped working. Since I live in Brazil and it's not worth sending it to repair to the US, I've popped it open and tried replacing the most common components (for you guys out there, electronic hobbysts or professionals, I've replaced the IC and the capacitor, since ALL the other components are SMD). Nothing, didn't work.

OVERALL CONSTRUCTION: looks fragile. Not sturdy.

ABOUT THE BATTERIES SOME USERS ARE REPORTING AS A PROBLEM> YES, it is a problem indeed. On the SECOND, SECOND(!!) label I made, the PT-90 warned about low batteries and turned off. I WAS USING FRESH SONY non-rechargeable batteries. Later, I tried Duracell ones. Great, two labels later, same warning and the device went dead...

ABOUT THE MANUAL> as with most of the globalized and "economy" devices, it comes with a multi-language owner's manual. Even if it was well drawn, the instructions are confuse, incomplete. The labeler is easy to use though and the manual is necessary when you need to print some labels differently from the regular dimensions (label size and fonts). But the manual opens and unfolds eternally, going from a business card size to a kitchen towel one...

Of course, I'm very disappointed and I've heard a lot of people out there saying horrible things about this line and some other models from this company. The age of good quality Brother stuff seems to be gone. Run. Away. As fast as possible.
