Brother P-Touch Home and Hobby Electronic Labeling System. Creates adhesive backed non-laminated tapes for many hime, office and school uses. Prints black letters on durable color tapes. Uses "M" tapes up to 1/2 inch. Prints in 9 type styles, 5 sizes and up tp 2 lines. Tape cutter blade cuts cleanly and safely.
The Brother PT-85 is a very portable labeler that fits right in the palm of your hand. It's easy to take anywhere and label anything! But don't be fooled--small as it is, it's packed with features.
The PT-85 will print nine typestyles in five sizes. It can print up to two lines and, like its bigger Brother labelers, offers text framing and underlining features. Easy to use, this labeler will even shut off by itself. An easy editing system allows you to change text styles quickly. This labeler prints black letters on durable color M tapes. One black-on-white half-inch tape is included. The labeler operates on six AA batteries, not included. --Linda Anderson

If you plan to do infrequent labeling, but want a good/compact device to do it, this is the unit to buy. At $29.99, you really can't go wrong.
One thing to be aware of is that the Label cartridges are not very big and you will replace cartridges faster than the more expensive labeler units (The cartridges are from $6-$9 each). One thing I don't like about this unit is that some common character like "#" and "$" are not easily accessable as you have to go thru several keystrokes to get the character to show up.
If you do alot of Labeling, want bigger cartridges or want a true Qwerty Keyboard, then the PT-1700 (at $10-$15 more than the PT-85) may be a better alternative
cons ... 1. heavy since has several AA batteries. 2. takes only one kind of tape. 3. not easy enough to remove tape from backing.
