Great little printer!
I bought the PT-1230PC to supplement a handheld label maker but now I find myself using it exclusively for making labels as it's so convenient. I chose it because I wanted a machine that I could connect to my PC (via USB). Although basic software is embedded into the printer (making it genuinely plug-and-play), I opted to download the more extensive P-touch Editor v5 software. The full editor makes it easy to produce labels in any font installed on your PC with vertical or horizontal orientation, single or multi-line at any font size that will fit on the tape (even simple graphics). You get plenty of style and format options which let you produce high-quality, professional looking labels and there's a large range of reasonably priced tapes available with both transparent or solid colour options. The best feature of the labels is that the print is covered with a protective top layer which makes them durable and log-lasting. The printer is very small (just a little larger that the average external hard drive), unobtrusive and doesn't clutter up your workspace and it can be operated from either internal batteries or a mains adapter. Overall, a great little label printer which produces high-quality labels with the minimum of fuss. Highly recommended.

Excellent piece of equipment to add to any home/office set-up. Compact and very small footprint for what it does.Tapes are enclosed in cartridges so that when they are not in the machine, they don't spread all over the place and there is a variety of styles of tape available. Would recommend this item to anyone who wants to make labels for the home, school or office environment.

A must have for the home
My wife uses the printer all of the time for labelling kitchen jars etc. The fact that they are wash resistant is particularly useful. Quick and very easy to use producing an excellent variety of labels. A must have product.

I'm really pleased to own this labeller. It does exactly as it says. You can choose any font and the print product is good. No raised letters as on other labellers. I've had a pleasing result every time I've used it!

A versatile printer with a good selection of options and sizes of tape. Non invasive on the desk space-very compact. Uses your computer fonts not preselected ones. Cannot fault the device and very happy with it.

this is a good machine with great choice of fonts and I had really great labels until decided to download the upgrade and it hasn't worked since, don't know what happened or what I did but I now can't get the machine to work on my computer.

Excelent upgrade from the Brother -touch 65
I`ve been using the P-touch 65 for quite a few years now, and have always liked it. The extra features on the PT-1230PC such as the almost unlimited fonts and the ability to produce icons and graphics makes this machine really useful.
