Once you plug it in, it becomes available as another drive on your system which has the software on it (no install needed.) Just run it, and it pops up with a picture of the tape (WSIWYG.) When you're done typing in/formatting it the way you want just click "print" and it spits out a perfect label, every time.
Note that the USB sharing device I used is not a printer sharing device, but a USB sharing device (also sold on Amazon - IOGear makes it.) This isn't really considered a "printer" by your system so keep that in mind. (I don't think you can share it out as such.)
I did have one issue. When I was printing 25 copies of a label, with about 5 to go, it jammed. Kept printing, but the label got jammed in on itself and scrunched the output back into the cartridge. The cartridge was pretty much wasted, however, it was nearly spent already. I'm not sure there was even enough tape to have finished all the labels anyway. Not sure if it was a defect in the cartridge or an issue with the printer. I have printed many labels since with no further problems.
I have to constantly relabel things for my job (I print about 96 labels each time I relabel) and with traditional P-Touch Label makers I was wasting a lot of time trying to get the format correct for my labels, cutting them to the right length, and reprinting them because I trimmed them too close or I cut the label at an angle and it didn't look good. On top of this, I was wasting a lot of tape because the label maker I had could only hold a certain amount of characters before I had to print forcing me to have waste at the beginning and the end of the print. Now, I know that I can print up to 40 inches of labels per print and only lose the first inch. On top of this, I can make each label with the font(s) of my choosing and with as many lines as I want. Furthermore, I can tell the software to print only label 15 of the sheet, or I can print a range of labels on the sheet.
Speaking of sheets, this brings me to talk about the software. Someone else here mentioned that the software isn't very flashy, and I'm okay with that. It's basic and easy to use. The big difference between the Mac and Windows version is that you can have multiple sheets in the Windows version. What are multiple sheets? If you've used Excel you've probably seen the tabs for, Sheet 1, Sheet 2, and Sheet 3, at the bottom of the screen. It's the same thing with the P-Touch Editor and that's great because I each project I do requires different size labels so I can have one master file instead of 9 to 12 different files per project. If you use the Mac software, you only get one sheet and if you try and open a file you edited with the Windows version, you'll only see the first sheet that you did in the Windows version.
The only thing I would change about this product is that the Mac version needs to be comparable to the Windows version. Of course, since you have to navigate through Brother's Japan website to find the Mac drivers and Editor software, a better request would be for them to create a US version of P-Touch Editor and make that the same as the Windows Version
Bottom line, if you're doing serious labeling, buy this printer or any printer that connects to a PC. If you're only printing a few labels occasionally, then just buy a regular Brother P-Touch.
