5.0 out of 5 stars STABILICERS NEVER FAIL ME., March 5, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Stabilicers® never fail me. All other brands of "ice creepers" I've tried, were not stable. My ankle would turn and cause a balance issue which could have resulted in a fall or a sprain, if I was not quick on my feet. Some brands would fall off the shoes or boots with a couple of steps taken. With their straps, Stabilicers stay on the boots or shoes. Yes, they are heavier; but, safety is very important. These cleats are specially designed for great gripping. No, short, self-tapping screws don't work well!

5.0 out of 5 stars COMFORTABLE & WITH A GOOD TREAD, December 13, 2015
Finding comfortable slippers with a good tread in the heel is hard. Most slippers after some wear will have you about to fall or slipping on the kitchen floor; especially, if there's some water on the floor. As you can see by my attached photo, the tread on the Dickies® Memory Foam Slippers have a fairly deep tread design.

The slippers are comfortable and my experience with memory foam slippers has found that it is better to have two pairs or more and alternate wearing them every few days as the memory foam needs to have time to rise back up. It doesn't have that quick response of a memory foam mattress. Another nice feature of these slippers is that they are made with Thinsulate® insulation. Although it is the lowest weight insulation, as in low quality gloves, 40 grams [per square yard] of Thinsulate does make the feet warmer. The best news is that the "big box" retailer, WM sells them for $8.50 in both black and tan. The black ones have sold the fastest and only the small, medium, & XL (13-14) sizes are left in black. Large (11-12) is in tan only. I went to four WM and only two had any Dickies Memory Foam Insulated Slippers left. They are easy to spot with the red Dickies logo. And, they may not be in the row with the rest of the slippers they sell. Check a couple of aisles.

A nice, different color than the usual red or white twist ties. Came with the tie in & twisted around cutter. We didn't have to fish for it through one of the small openings. Thanks Weststone!

3.0 out of 5 stars Prints more lines than lesser models; BUT…., October 30, 2015
My new Brother PT-D600 labeler's big advantage is that you can print more than two lines on a label from 1/2"/12 mm and wider tapes. On a 3/4"/18 mm tape, I can get, four lines of easy-to-see type (Models 1830 & 1880 = 2 lines). In that regard, the PT-D600 saves money spent on labels. However, almost weekly, I'm finding something that isn't listed in the owner's manual. Just found that it wouldn't print 5 lines on a 3/4"/18 mm tape--even with 6 point type; although, instructions say it can be done. On the 3/4"/18 mm tape there is enough space for six lines. On a 1"/24 mm tape only 5 lines can be printed. Brother claims 7 lines can be printed.

I spoke with Brother's Customer Service and they said I had pushed "Enter" too many times; therefore, it would not allow extra lines and that I had to erase all the characters I had entered. If I did that, and re-entered the info, I'd have the same problem again. "Enter" was pushed only when I wanted to begin a new line underneath. This labeler is good in some ways and sucks in so many other ways! The programers of the software should be retrained!

Here's more ways it will frustrate you: The Brother PT-D600 prints the letters A, M, & N in extra bold when the Style is set as "Bold." This is the second unit to do so, as I returned the first one to Staples. Even at $50.00 on sale, with a software defect like that, it makes my old, user friendly, PT-1830 (with 5 label memories) look better. In fact, I often switch to it to do labels that are only 1 or 2 lines as it is quicker & with no frustration.

Many reviewers complain about the 1"/24mm of blank tape wasted before the label is printed (on any Brother labeler). Unfortunately, due to the design of the Brother label cartridges, which contain three spools of the different layers of the tape, one always gets a blank piece chopped off when starting a label--including chain printing. However, with chain printing each label is cut off just before the beginning and at the end of the label (assuming you've selected: "Small Margin"). There are no : dots separating each label as with the less expensive units such as my PT-1830 model.

Another problem is I have to press both "Print" then "Ok" two times each, to get it to print. On the older 1830 "Print" does it with one press! Since the 600 does more, they had to make it more complicated. Seems no one thought: "How can we make this more user friendly?" That also goes for the small, user un-friendly owner's manual. I hope they print the next edition twice the size and with black ink instead of trendy, gray, watered down ink. As it is, you may need a magnifier to read it!

Customer Service is located in the Dominican Republic and is open Mon-Fri 9 am to 9 pm EST. Tough luck if it's Saturday or Sunday! I started with the DR Customer Service in a 47 minute phone call with 23 minutes waiting for them to pick up. Be sure to give your phone# right away, in case there is a problem with the phone system…they can call you back. They couldn't figure out the problem, so I was told that another office in Tennessee would call back in 2-4 hours. A Customer Service supervisor called back & while I was waiting, she got the PT-D600 to compare with mine. The extra bold A-M-N letters didn't show up in the supervisor's labeler. Perhaps, she had a newer unit, with the software problem fixed. Subsequent phone calls = no change in software--yet.

To get the unit to underline some words, you have to select Underline first; then, type what you want. Ditto with centered and underlined text. Select "Align" & use down arrow to get to "Center."

Also, with the 600, one has to go through a selection of 15 choices of everything from "Font, Size, Width, Style, Line, Align, Frame, Symbol, Length, Cut Option, Tab Length, Bar Code, Time Stamp, Tab, & Save." And, because the screen isn't wide enough to show all of them to the right and in columns, you have to remember where something is and press down ' or, up ' on the screen to get to it. For their next model, I suggested the wider/longer screen improvement, a larger and more user friendly Instruction Booklet, and longer Space bar to make typing easier.

2.0 out of 5 stars MATTE/DULL FINISH NOT PRINTED ON PACKAGE, September 28, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Nowhere on the package has Brother International Corp., provided the information that this is a Matte or Dull finish of lamination. Take a look at the photo of the clear package shown on Amazon. Packaging is now mostly cardboard and it doesn't even have that information either. Had I known that before purchasing it, I never would have bought it. Also, white print, even if it is large, just doesn't show up well. It isn't sharp like black ink. That said, we do use a lot of white on clear tape [TZe135] in 1/2"/12 mm & 3/4"/18 mm [TZe145] . (clear isn't available in less than 1/2"/12 mm). The white on clear is sharp compared to the white on Lime Green Tape [TZeMQG35]. The same problem exists with the Berry Pink tape [TZeMQP35].

5.0 out of 5 stars STOPS STINGING PAIN QUICKLY!, September 22, 2015
Stops stinging pain of leg ulcers! Also, bee stings. And, quickly. This is a wonderful product that we keep even in our cars, just for emergencies. When you have a crying child with a cut or scrape, ONE tab can take the pain away in seconds. That makes for a happier kid and parents. So far, we've found that any pain in the nerves is greatly reduced or gone with Hyland's Hypericum. Very useful if you're sensitive to pain. We use 1 tab before having acupuncture, which isn't painful--usually.
DON'T follow the manufacturer's instructions to take 4 tabs…take just one (1) tab and repeat IF necessary. The manufacturer wants you to use up the product and buy more.

Another reviewer wrote that St John's Wort was a better bargain. It isn't! Although Hypericum is a homeopathic preparation of St John's Wort, it isn't the same thing as taking the herb, St John's Wort, which is used for mild depression. As I discovered years ago, before any publicity was made about SJW, if you're under full-spectrum lights or in the sunlight often, you can wind up with skin blisters that look like huge poison ivy blisters...

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT AVAILABLE NARROWER THAN 1/2" (12 MM), September 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We use a fair amount of this Brother TZE White on Clear labeling tape. Unfortunately, it is not available in any width less than 1/2" (12 mm). I've asked the Brother customer service dept to pass on the suggestion that they make it in narrower widths. Probably will have to wait a long time for that!

It's fine; but, I'd like a red ink pad instead, as red is easier to see.

5.0 out of 5 stars HELPED ME LOSE 90 LBS/40.90 Kg IN 3 YEARS, August 4, 2015
1-2 caps and you can go without eating. Along with Super CitriMax (60% Garcinia Cambogia), I've lost 90 lbs over 3 years of on & off use. I don't trust other brands of Hoodia. Some are green in all sorts of shades. This is a light brown color.
