TZe labels feature a split back design for hassle-free application. Use one of our specialty tapes to create flexible cable and wire identification labels or create labels with acid-free adhesive that are safe for scrapbooking, and other photo-sensitive materials.

It runs with an included adapter and or 6 AA batteries. I mostly want to make flag labels to help me more quickly identify the mass wires that support my electronics. But other uses became known rather quickly. "don't open", On/off for light switches, reminders around the thermostat and so much more. Really glad I bought this. I tried to do the labels on the computer with the Dymo and it was a useless experience. I think you can do all that you need with this guy and you can save the extra cost to run a label program on the computer (like the upgraded models offer)
I use this primarily for "domestic organization" -- i.e., labeling storage boxes and such -- and this label maker is more than sufficient for that purpose. It is small enough to be easy to store, but not so small that I have to strain to see the screen or the keys. Most of the features you will use commonly (selecting font size, etc.) you can do without reading the instructions. My point here isn't that you don't need the instruction book, but rather that this thing is largely intuitive.
One tip: As other reviewers have noted, if you print labels individually this machine by default leaves annoyingly large margins on either side of them. You can partly overcome this if you are making more than one label at a time by using the "chain" feature, which helps cut down on the size of the margin between the labels.
Overall I'm very happy with this little label maker.
Minor Gripe: As others have mentioned in their reviews, it does squeak a bit.
Major Gripe: Every label job wastes about 1 inch of tape before actually printing. This is unacceptable--it seems to force customers to purchase more label tape. That 1" per job adds up over time...
I can deal with the minor gripe, but the major one makes it hard to recommend this product to anyone else. I mean if every labeler had this limitation out of necessity, then it would be somewhat understandable, but that's obviously not true, as even Brother's smaller P-touch labelers don't have this problem.
NOTE: Pressing the "Label" button and switching the margin to Narrow only eliminates the margin on the right. It will not eliminate the margin on the left. If you're printing with default settings (full margin), then it's not noticeable, but any other setting will leave the large blank space on the left.
Keyboard makes creating the labels so quick, printing is almost instant, the AC adapter means I won't ever have to fool with batteries, and the manual explains everything very well, making it easy for me to jump in and start creating labels immediately.
At the moment, I'm using them for spine labels on books, so I mostly did 2 lines. Big numbers and letters. I also used the 4-line setting when I had very thin books: small numbers & letters but very clear and readable. Auto-font chooses the largest font that will fit, depending on the number of lines needed. I easily changed the font size down when I needed the letters to fit onto a smaller space.
When I'm done with the books, I will try address labels and labels for the drawers and boxes that hold supplies for all my other hobbies.
I've not had any trouble with it, so I can't say how helpful customer support is...and that's good!
