PT-2430PC used with Apple
Excellent desktop label printer, found Mac driver on Japanese Apple site so I can use it with my MacBookPro. Much more economical to use than my previous hand-held label printer as in the Auto function the machine cuts the tape with little waste. I would suggest using the Editing software rather than just plugging it in and getting going as there is so much more variety in the designs you can use. I am so pleased to have upgraded to this machine and will soon need new tapes!
Thoroughly recommended as it is a joy to use.

PT-2430PC, Good Quality but is let down by Brother
Excellent product, but Brother has let itself down
I would have given this an excellent rating but Brother didn't write drivers for the Mac or other OS's.
I have worked with Brother kit from electronic typewriters (over 20 years ago),printers etc to some of the latest products, as soon as you see the Brother name you know it is solid equipment, even with it's sewing machines quality is embedded.
I dont understand why Brother does this sort of thing, brilliant equipment then falls short by drivers.
Overall great product, but somebody poke a stick at Brother and get them to go a few more millimeters and see an extra market beyond Microsoft.
Good effort Brother!

Generally Good, Watch for Tape Waste
This is one of very few label printers which has label tapes available in various types, including laminated, which is what I needed.
The only drawback is that the default settings are very wasteful on label tape, ejecting about 20mm of wasted tape for every label. It is a hassle to stop the printer/application from doing this. Label tape is quite expensive, so you want to make sure that you correct this.

Great little machine for printing all sorts of labels for around the house and particulary in the office (The office is why I really purchased) - I'ts makes things look so professional - There is a good selection of 'ready made' templates to download which again - gives that professional look to the labels

Great little Printer but let down by software
I have many years of experience with this type and make of printer in a work environment, but when extracting print data from a spreadsheet which it is supposed to be compatible with, it adds carriage return and adds fields into the print layout.
But when you understand its errors it does a fine job
