            Comments about Brother PT-9800PCN Desktop Bar Code Network Printer:

            Bought for printing QR codes for our store. Not every product has a barcode on it, but in our Point of Sale we have given every item a unique alpha-numeric code. In order to track sales faster and better, we wanted to give everything a QR code. This prints usable code on 3/8" tape so labels are discrete. Included software is easy to use and can read many database types, incl, .mdb, .xls and.csv.

                So far the perfect printer for our small company, testing is underway on how long the labels will last. Will update after the tests.

                    This product is used to print bar codes from my desktop. It is so easy to use, the software that it comes with is intuitive, with may bar code options available. To put in the cartridges, it is easy and pops right in... I would recommmend this to anyone looking to generate high quality bar code labels.
