PT-D400 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 194.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good replacement Love the new features on my new brother labeler, especially the new design features. So much versatility. My only drawback is that the tapes from my old labeler do not fit my new machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This PT-D400 is Packed with Features I purchased this Label Maker to replace an older one, with far fewer features, that I’d had for a long time, until it finally had a fatal meltdown. I was hesitant to get this model, whereas I was uncertain of needing all of the options (like a stereo and rustproofing), yet the price was exceptional and I thought it would be fun. And it is! It works really well, though I am still getting acquainted with some features. I highly recommend the PT-D400.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the PT D400 It's perfect for labeling all the dehydrated herbs and vegetables I did this summer. I can easily identify each jar and I'm really pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Label Printer This is the cat's meow if you are looking for a table printer. Now I can label everything from files to my antenna switch in the radio room so I know which antenna is which. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Labelmaker I really like my PT-D400 because the labels are beautiful. But there are some flaws. First of all, it was ridiculous that a power cord was not included! I had to buy one! Second, the images and the text are not as clear as I expected they would be: they appear to be composed of many individual dots. That should not be. And third, even when I make the margins smaller, so much tape is wasted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Labeling Printer The unit works well, does a nice job. It is a bit complicated to use if you go beyond the basics. Only problem is trying to insert the 24 mm tape. It would not go in and work. All others work well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great labelling machine with lots of features If you want to print a label, 50% of the tape goes to waste

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My review I wish the graphics were easily to would be cool if it lighted up otherwise it is great. Besides the price for the tape is spendy

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for Purchased this one today, was expecting to be a good investment, not a headache. First, I had to find six AA batteries to even work the machine. There is a plug but needs to be bought separately. Now I can finally start to create my first label, which is hard to read the display even with my glasses on. Finally, I got to hit thr print button, to my displeasure, nothing happened. Upon opening the cover to find the tape broke on my first label. I can't afford to pay for new tape if this machine keeps breaking them not to mention the amount of batteries. Now I can't make labels on white tape. I brought the white print on lime green tape thinking that would stand out; to my dismay, it is horrible. White on lime hard to read the printing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SYSTEM ERROR AS SOON AS PURCHASED! We used our new PT-D400, once and then got the System Error01!. Went on line to fix and the solution did not help. Next step is diagnostic and repairs!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portability Use printer on boats for labeling wires. Saves time hooking and moving electric cords.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Printer This machine offers s large selection of labels to customize just about any job. While being a bit complex to change fonts, at least to me, it’s still a great printer!! I’d buy it again in a heartbeat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Printer The only issue I have wityh this label maker is that it does waste more tape than it should when printing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great label maker Great at making labels for any type of project. I have used Brother label making product from the beginning when they were advertized in airline magazines.
Date published: 2019-03-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good Over all it's a great little unit that is very easy to use. Set up is simple and you can get to work fast. The big thing is that my unit did not come with a power cord and there were none at the store so I have to run on batteries. It's not a deal killer just an annoyance. For the price I would rather see the battery version as an option but I was not part of the marketing research.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gift! I am very pleased with my gift thus far. Haven't learned all the features it can do yet but it has been fairly easy to find online all the things it can do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use and Flexible I was very happy to find the PT-D400 label maker to use in a fairly level of organizing files both at home and at work. I like the way it can sit on my desk and be available instantly. It has many features that allow custom labels. It has received multiple uses including file labels, filing box labels, recycling bin labels, and even labeling food given to family and neighbors as gifts. The little symbols to include on the labels are also fun. Nice product and nice size.
