Ratings and Reviews

Customer reviews

PTP700 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent device I have used an aged P-touch portable (PT-1750) that used TZ tapes and was hoping to use up my old stock of labels but the TZ and the TZe are not compatible; you can use the TZe tapes in older devices but not TZ in the PTP700. As for the machine itself, is does an excellent job. I use the Windows P-touch Editor 5.1.100 software and it prints a much smoother text than the old one, uses the Windows TrueType fonts installed on your PC and allows small graphics to be imported (Black & White)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dated software but does the job As another review has mentioned the software for Mac is dated and not particularly easy to use. Also the snap function (copy and paste from external source) isn't working for El Capitan. However I found it available cheaply online with a money back offer from Brother which made it very good value. Didn't realise till after I had bought it that I couldn't use my older Tz tapes from handheld printer. Need to use Tze tapes instead. Couldn't find anything remotely similar elsewhere ...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good printer for fully flexible labels This is a good printer if you want to fully customise your labels with logos, layout and graphics. It's also excellent for printing lots of labels with mail merge. The software for Mac is a bit clunky, for example if you insert an image it sets it to 0x0 and doesn't maintain the aspect ratio by default. It's generally not as polished as something like Pages but it's serviceable. (Think MS Word 2003). In principle you can print to it from any software as it's just a printer but when I had a quick go I couldn't get the paper size right. The range of tapes is good and unlike the main competitor you don't have to have an 'industrial' machine for the more industrial tapes. The printing is clear but a little bit low res, I think it probably has roughly the same number of pixels across as my handheld printer but they're spread over 24mm rather than 9mm making graphics and small text look a bit blocky. You do lose quite a bit bit of tape (about 10mm is cut off and discarded) each time you print an individual label which is a bit of a waste but if you mail merge it doesn't do that for each one so printing 20 or 30 labels at a time it's not a big problem. I bought this on a cashback which made it exceptional value for money for a USB printer that will print industrial tapes. I just wish the DPI was a bit higher.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but what do I do with my old tapes? All told, a fine little machine. Just what I wanted. Easily operated from my PC, with a small footprint on the desk. But what do I do with my old supply of tapes? I have a much-loved and long-lived hand-held P-Touch, and I find that none of the tapes I already have will work in the new machine. It would seem that, whilst current tapes will work in my old machine, my new machine takes only much more recent tapes. And, yes, my old tapes are Brother OEM tapes! Seems I can't throw away my old machine just yet!
