    Brother PT-1230PC reviews

    PT-1230PC PC Connectable Label Maker is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great labeler! I am so used to the big clunky labelers that are such a pain to load and type, but this has been such a great change! I just started making different canned foods so I use it for that, as well as a side farming business to label my products and packaging and it's wonderful! Eventually I will upgrade to fancier labels for the farming stuff but for now this is perfect, and I will always use it for household labeling I'm sure! So easy to use and so compact, it's great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Product While I've only had this label maker a short time, I love it. It's nice and compact in size and works great. I like the fact that I can design my own labels. I would recommend it over and over. Only thing I didn't like is that it does not come with a wall outlet plug. They can be purchased separately.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok label maker Good for regular labels. However, vertical orientation is flaky. Instructions for downloading template labels did not work - the driver didn't install correctly on any of the three computers I tried, so the update software required for templates download does not work.
