Quirky software, very good printer
I really like this printer, but the software that it is bundled with is a bit quirky. For example, one day it started placing all text within a frame on any new label. I figured out how to turn it off temporarily, but it comes right back with the next new label. Really annoying. I can’t figure how to make it gone and keep it gone.
It prints beautiful labels any number of ways. They are always crisp, easy to read, and do the job well. The Brother software has tons of features, some are hidden deep within the sub menus. Often trying to find a feature requires going to the on-line help (which isn’t always easy to maneuver through.) which can be a pain. And the help info is hit or miss as to if the topic one is looking for exists.
This printer is more temperamental than some of the other label printers I’ve had from brother. For example, it has jammed more times than any other brother label printer. When it jams, the tape cartridge is done. You cannot repair it, you just have to toss it.
But those are minor inconveniences that can be overcome. For the most part the printer works well, does exactly what it is supposed to do, and does that well over and over again.
I like the chain printing feature which saves quite a bit on tapes. Otherwise every label has an 1” to 1.5” of leader before the actual text.
