Product Reviews
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Label Maker Pleased with the included features and the ease in setup. April 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Label printer I use this printer often to label many IT related items, Workstations with the Station ID, Backup tapes, Network cabling, etc. Its not the fastest printer, but is does seem to be reliable and accurate.The included label maker software if somewhat intuitive 0 a little quirky but once you make a label or two, very easy to use. The key is to make sure you've selected the correct tape size that is in the printer, before you start creating a label.Strongly recommend this label maker printer for all the labeling needs you may have to keep things well organized. May 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great software makes it a winner In writing Amazon reviews about scanners, I remarked that there is no such thing as a good or bad scanner, only good or bad scanner software.The same is almost as true of label makers. The label-creation program that comes with the PT-2730 is remarkable for its features -- and complexity. It's not something you'll master in a few minutes. But it does have templates for common labeling needs, and if you want to do something that's not obvious, the Help system usually has an answer. It is far superior to the software that came with Brother's TX computer-connected labelers.One of the program's best features is the ability to drag-and-drop text //or images// directly into the label you're creating.I have two gripes. The PT-2730 doesn't take the TX tapes I used with my older machines. Nor does it take 24mm tape. (Only one or two TZ machines do.)For those new to labeling machines -- note that the regular tapes will not stick to polypropylene (eg, buckets, trash cans). The tapes with "high strength" adhesive are required. October 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Labeler This Labeler is great for making multiple labels, it can be connected to a PC and linked to a database or spreadsheet to print from. The software that came with the unit is clunky and could use updating, but it is functional and saves a lot of time. July 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great ... Some waste The label maker works great and has filled my need for an inexpensive, PC/MAC connectable labeler. The only distraction is the 1 inch waste of tape at each printing. This is not much of a waste, but over time will add up. Other than my perceived problem with this item, the labeler is well worth the price. July 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice product I have used this product a lot and find it very useful. June 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything I expected Initially outraged as the manual makes no mention of P-touch Editor or printing labels from a database. After checking the website, I learned that I needed Editor, installed it, and have printed labels from Excel. Total control of what records to print - one record, a range, or all. Not too difficult, easy editing, and I love it! I recommend the PT-2730 connectable, even if you don't think you need to print from a PC. It's a good capability to have in case you or someone you know does eventually need it (you could end up a hero to an organization, family member, or friend). March 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Label Maker The label maker arrived on time and so far it does a great job making labels. January 12, 2014
