Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wasted Tape Bought this machine as it is compatible with Megger PAT420 tester. The problem is that it wastes as much tape as you print ie 4cm of tape per label.Not sure if this is due to Brother of the software in the PAT tester but it makes it an expensive label .I am sure it is only a software tweak but judging by the forums this is not available

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother USB Label Printer Very pleased with this little box which prints very good quality labels and is connected to my PC by USB. I also own a hand-held Brother labeller which, although very portable, does not have the huge range of options that this machine provides. I can add images, symbols and a wide variety of text fonts. The software is fairly straightforward and my only regret is not buying one last year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The PT 2430 PC is just what we needed We bought the printer to create attractive stencils for our Etching machine using ST-151 Stencil tape. The easy to use software has enabled us to incorporate detailed art work into the label

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!
