        We have one of these already and it has been a great machine. We needed an extra one for labeling files and it works perfect.

        Comments about Brother® P-Touch® PT-2730 Simply Professional Label Maker:

        The only reason why I did not give it five stars is because I haven't yet used all the features.

        The qwerty keyboard earns it the first three stars. It's much faster input than lesser models with the keyboard having the alphabet in order (which I never quite got used to). Part of it is the Brother system which I've used for years because it works well for me.

        I give it the forth star for the completeness of the kit with the case and adapter included (and the great deal I got from Staples with a price match).

        I have a feeling I would probably be awarding the fifth star for the computer interface, but I haven't used it that way yet.

        great software makes it a winner

        By GrizzledGeezer

        from Renton, WA

        Comments about Brother® P-Touch® PT-2730 Simply Professional Label Maker:

        In writing Amazon reviews about scanners, I remarked that there is no such thing as a good or bad scanner, only good or bad scanner software. The same is almost as true of label makers. The label-creation program that comes with the PT-2730 is remarkable for its features -- and complexity. It's not something you'll master in a few minutes. But it does have templates for common labeling needs, and if you want to do something that's not obvious, the Help system usually has an answer. It is far superior to the software that came with Brother's TX computer-connected labelers. One of the program's best features is the ability to drag-and-drop text //or images// directly into the label you're creating. I have two gripes. The PT-2730 doesn't take the TX tapes I used with my older machines. Nor does it take 24mm tape. (Only one or two TZ machines do.) For those new to labeling machines -- note that the regular tapes will not stick to polypropylene (eg, buckets, trash cans). The tapes with "high strength" adhesive are required.

        Great Labeler

        By srhudd

        from Richardson, TX

        Comments about Brother® P-Touch® PT-2730 Simply Professional Label Maker:

        This Labeler is great for making multiple labels, it can be connected to a PC and linked to a database or spreadsheet to print from. The software that came with the unit is clunky and could use updating, but it is functional and saves a lot of time.

        Works great ... Some waste

        By loflandl

        from San Diego, CA

        Comments about Brother® P-Touch® PT-2730 Simply Professional Label Maker:

        The label maker works great and has filled my need for an inexpensive, PC/MAC connectable labeler. The only distraction is the 1 inch waste of tape at each printing. This is not much of a waste, but over time will add up. Other than my perceived problem with this item, the labeler is well worth the price.

        It works good but wastes too much tape each and every time you print a label

        Everything I expected

        By jschlimmer

        from Janesville IA

        Comments about Brother® P-Touch® PT-2730 Simply Professional Label Maker:

        Initially outraged as the manual makes no mention of P-touch Editor or printing labels from a database. After checking the website, I learned that I needed Editor, installed it, and have printed labels from Excel. Total control of what records to print - one record, a range, or all. Not too difficult, easy editing, and I love it! I recommend the PT-2730 connectable, even if you don't think you need to print from a PC. It's a good capability to have in case you or someone you know does eventually need it (you could end up a hero to an organization, family member, or friend).

        A Bit of a Challenge, But It Works

        By BrotherRandahl

        from Washington State

        Comments about Brother® P-Touch® PT-2730 Simply Professional Label Maker:

        First Labeler for me other than one of the manual type ones of many years ago. A bit early to write a detailed report, but I found the manual that comes with it, although quite detailed, a bit challenging and not clear in places. I had to call tech support 2 or 3 times to get solutions, but I got them and I always have from Brother. I have 2 of their Printers, also, and they are top notch. I have finally used the Labeler to make some initial labels, ( Letters for my Keyboard Keys, as the decals wore out from my fast and considerable typing. Nothing else has worked in the way of replacement, but white letters on black tape works great and is wearing fine so far. Time will tell, but I can quickly make more if needed. The tape seems to stick well, also. All in all, I am looking forward to using this machine as soon as I figure it out a bit more.....I would say, Go for It!!! SHALOM.....Brother Randahl
