Customer Reviews

PT-D400 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 220.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Easy to use as long as the guides are handy. There's no way I'd be able to memorize how to get to all the symbols and special characters. Beyond that, this is a great label maker. I most recently used it to label my yarn cubes so I dont need to open the doors to know whats in them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LED SCREEN HARD TO READ I am getting used to my Brother Labeling machine but I find the LED screen impossible to read. I like the black lettering on the older model I have. Had I known I would not have bought this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great improvement on previous older models My older model wore out. Current PT-D400 is such an outstanding machine, which seems to handle all my requirements. Of course, as with any new machine, it takes a while until you find all the features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a life saver for me, I got all my network server cables organized and easy to find. I also use this to name things around the kitchen, office and tools.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Label Printer Love the label printer. Great tape selection and clear print. Love the cable option which I have used extensively. Only issue I have it is not too intuitive in menu selections and can be hard if the printer is not used regularly.
