Nice little label-maker

I bought this for convenience so I could make labels at my computer/desk rather than getting out my Brother 1400 portable. The software for the 1230C plus the computer keyboard are an easier interface than on the portable. The 1230 is very simple to install and use - I didn't even bother downloading the full software package - the self-installing app included right in the 1230 is plenty for everyday use.

Get you baseball bat out.

I looked forward to replacing an old brother simple text labeller with this one. What a mistake. From day one I have not been able to get it to work. The only thing that worked was when I went for a home run using this for the baseball off my rear deck. I have wasted 2 days and a complete reload of Windows 7 professional 64bit in trying to get it to work. I did all the updates as requested/required.

A huge waste of time and I will not be using Brother devices again. I expected more from a name brand that usually makes good equipment.

Fallen out of Love with PT-1230PC label printer

By

from Mesa, AZ

I Loved this little label printer... It worked perfectly, was fast, efficient, kept my files and office neat and organized. That was when my computer had Windows XP O/S. Then I got Windows 7, 64 bit system. My labeler has NOT worked correctly since! I spend more time trying to get the icon to appear on my system than it's worth! PAIN in the neck!!! A HUGE waste of time and GIANT step backward...

great little machine

I have an online sewing business and have enjoyed printing customized labels at the blink of an eye. It installed on my computer very easily and has worked like a charm. It works better than my regular printer. GREAT PRODUCT!

Used to make Electrochemical Etch Stencils

By

from South Carolina

We bought the machine to produce stencils for electrochemically part marking aerospace parts (Method AS478-7A) The self loading software is easy to use and the stencils work well in our application. You need to buy STE cartridges for the stencil material. We're getting perfect part marks on stainless steel and Inconel parts with this system.

Easy

By

from Undisclosed

Had trouble with the software install but the webb site helped cure this.A little frustrated at first because the first half dozen labels were streaked,but now it does a good job.Label cartridge cost is kind of high.

I can't live without my label maker

By

from Tucson, AZ

I love my label maker. There is no end to the creative possibilities for this label maker. You name it, you can put a label on it. I made some labels for my husband, he put them in his shirt pocket, the shirt and labels went through the laundry/dryer and the labels were still good to use. Difficult to get off the item you put them on, you don't have to worry about the label falling off. I couldn't ask for anything better.

PT-1230PC

By

from Coast of Maine

Machine was purchased to provide miniature year & mint mark labels for labeling those extra spaces found in coin books. Using the pc connected version, I have been able to create labels suited to my purpose with any font in my computer. My tape preference for this purpose is black on clear backing

Best thing since sliced breat.

By

from NJ, Fl and PA seasonally

Works great. easy to set up for quick usage. The only complaint is that I would like to see less "wasted" tape on each side of the wording.
