Wasteful printing

By Roger

from Kent, Ohio

Comments about Brother® PT1230PC PC Connectable Label Maker:

The printer itself is fine. Makes nice labels. The problem is the cost of the special tape at about $1 per foot and the intenional wasteful printer setting that forces you to waste 1" of tape every time you print a label. I do a lot of small labels (1" to 1-1/2"" so I am throwing away 1/3 of the expensive tape.

Great buy for clearance item @ $7.50

By http://ns-bc.co

from Pleasant Hill, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Brother® PT1230PC PC Connectable Label Maker:

PROS: Simple Setup; Small Footprint; Battery Powered
CONS: Always 1/2" lead on anything printed; no AC adapter

I bought this because it's on clearance and I sometimes need to make many labels in a row. This is easier to use than a handheld device.

It's battery-powered, which makes it portable, but it does not come with an AC adapter, which means it's wasteful.

The biggest drawback is that no matter the configuration, there is always a blank lead before your printed product spools from the printer. This printer wastes label tape.

I wouldn't buy this at full price.

Get you baseball bat out.

By AHolland

from Undisclosed

Comments about Brother® PT1230PC PC Connectable Label Maker:

I looked forward to replacing an old brother simple text labeller with this one. What a mistake. From day one I have not been able to get it to work. The only thing that worked was when I went for a home run using this for the baseball off my rear deck. I have wasted 2 days and a complete reload of Windows 7 professional 64bit in trying to get it to work. I did all the updates as requested/required. I am pretty savy when it comes to working a computer and another friend who is a programmer could not help either. Simply put this device does not seem to work under Win7 64 bit. A huge waste of time and I will not be using Brother devices again. I expected more from a name brand that usually makes good equipment.

Fallen out of Love with PT-1230PC label printer

By 1CitizenJane

from Mesa, AZ

Comments about Brother® PT1230PC PC Connectable Label Maker:

I Loved this little label printer... It worked perfectly, was fast, efficient, kept my files and office neat and organized. That was when my computer had Windows XP O/S. Then I got Windows 7, 64 bit system. My labeler has NOT worked correctly since! I spend more time trying to get the icon to appear on my system than it's worth! PAIN in the neck!!! A HUGE waste of time and GIANT step backward...

      Comments about Brother® PT1230PC PC Connectable Label Maker:

      this is a great little label maker! It is very mobile and easy to use. I love the idea that I did not have to download any software. Unwrap, place batteries, and plug into your laptop and you are ready to go. The quality of the laminated labels are also a plus. I am labeling containers that I will be storing and will make everything fast and easy to identify without needing to open every container! I am also labeling all the different remotes throughout the house, to keep them organized. I purchased extra label tapes and do not forget the batteries.

      I have an online sewing business and have enjoyed printing customized labels at the blink of an eye. It installed on my computer very easily and has worked like a charm. It works better than my regular printer. GREAT PRODUCT!

      Used to make Electrochemical Etch Stencils

      By MikeinSC

      from South Carolina

      Comments about Brother® PT1230PC PC Connectable Label Maker:

      We bought the machine to produce stencils for electrochemically part marking aerospace parts (Method AS478-7A) The self loading software is easy to use and the stencils work well in our application. You need to buy STE cartridges for the stencil material. We're getting perfect part marks on stainless steel and Inconel parts with this system.
