One of the most versatile PC & Mac compatible label markers on the market today. Great value!
When you open the PTD600 box, you'll find the following:
*Starter black on white TZe laminated tape cartridge
One place where this model stands out above lower level labeler models is that the power supply is included with this one. This unit will also run off of six AA batteries, which is great for a portable labeler. However, for something that will stay in the office, having the power supply is ideal.
Once everything is unboxed and you've installed the starter cartridge, go ahead and download the drivers and P-Touch update software from the Brother website. After that's installed, go ahead and run the machine update to upgrade the firmware if available an update is available. Next run the computer software update to see if there are any other updates.
Next you'll want to go and and download the P-Touch Editor from the Brother website. Please note, you'll need the serial number found on the bottom of the PT-D600 labeler to download the editor software. While you can create labels directly on the labeler, you'll definitely want to have access to this software, so you can create labels from your computer too.
Eventually you'll need to pick up some spare cartridges for your labeler. Please note there will be some variance in cost based on the size and color of the laminated label cartridges.
Besides the power supply, some of the premium features worth noting with this model are:
*full color backlit display
*auto tape cutter
We plan to use the Brother PT-D600 around our home office and my daughter will most likely put it to use for some of her craft projects. The ability to design labels directly on the labeler as well as on your computer, certainly makes this a versatile labeler.
The Brother PT-D600 Label Maker offers exceptional value for a labeler with such a wide range of features and functionality. My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
