Every seriously organized person needs one of these. And THIS is the one to get!
AWESOME label maker! This is the perfect gift for that compulsive somebody - OR - yourself if you live the organized life. Where to begin?
Okay, Brother includes the electric cord, aka AC Adapter, so you don't have to go get 6 double A batteries - HUGE plus - great job, Brother! And the USB cord is tucked into the package as well for simple PC connecting and Mac, too.
Next, the printer comes preset and stocked with tons of premade templates - YAY! The only thing that kind of amazed me was that there was no folder or category for presets for HOME. You have one for the office, business, etc - but Brother should realize that a ton of these printers are going out to those of us who may be considered by some - ahem - a little OCD, in our home life, lol. Anyway, it's really a minor curiosity and not a complaint.
The tapes load very easily and you are up and running in about 60 seconds after you plug it in, including loading the tapes.
There is a pretty decent sized keyboard with individual keys, Tab, Caps, Scale, Symbol and Accent buttons. Total unit weight is about two pounds without the batteries.
Super easy to use, fast, and has a built in cutter which is just awesome.
I love this thing!
There is a huge selection of tapes. For these, I would exercise a bit of caution - if you get the white lettering ones on any of the paler color backgrounds, they are very hard to read. Other than that, they offer six different widths, extra strength adhesive tapes, iron on tapes and laminated tapes. Every one I tried was excellent quality. The cartridges are compact - and easy to organize and store - ha!
If you have any questions, write in the comments below and I will get back with you. Otherwise, I am off to label all those darn cords under my office desk! Woooohooooo!
