Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too much Tape being used to print the actual job. Good Product HOWEVER! it uses far too much tape Prior to the print and at the end of the print job. The exessive amount of tape used to print the job will end up negating the savings on the original purchase of the device. Pretty unfortunate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from YUCKY! Terrible! Forget it! My 3rd machine. Loved the others. This machine PT-D400 is very difficult to use! Display that supposedly lights up is Very difficult to see &/ or Read, Letters are black. Highlights in black . So forget about seeing anything no mater what light you have. Instruction manual lots of unnecessay jibberish. not quick or easy to provide instructions.. Choosing font and selecting size difficult. Too long to finally print. Time consuming to use. HeVier than previous machines Sorry I put chased. Waste of monrey, time Android energy… Waste of money. On

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gutes Gerät, Display unbrauchbar Grundsätzlich gutes Gerät, leider ist der Text auf dem Display nur bei direktem hellen Sonnenlicht oder beim Beleuchten mit einer Taschenlampe lesbar. Somit kann das Gerät nicht vernünftig bedient werden. Da das Gerät nicht zurückenommen wird, habe ich es gleich wieder entsorgt...!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO MUCH FUN! This is my favorite new toy! I just made a 25th anniversary card and trimmed it in ribbon with their names and clinking champagne glasses. I keep finding more ways to play with this. I'm amazed at the choices of fonts and icons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! Really like it, but being a senior on a small income can't buy the tape like I would like to. I just have to save money to buy tapes. I have plenty of ideas of how to use the tapes. Projects and labeling things too. So glad you have clear tape with black or white letters. Will take some time to learn how to use it. Are there any videos on goggle to watch how to use it.????
