OVERALL We generally like the p-touch, enough so that I have talked clients into buying one. It can produce good looking, easy to read, clear labels. If you need to print the kinds of labels that this will print, it ought to be on your short list of candidates. The unit is intended to be portable and it does have the ability to run from batteries. We have taken it with us to client sites, but have always powered it from AC instead of batteries. THINGS THAT COULD BE BETTER Getting Software Getting software for this unit from Brother’s WEB site is a bigger pain than it ought to be. Why make us jump through hoop just to get the software? The process makes it harder to convince someone else to buy it, when they watch how much work it is to get the software so you can demo it. Ability To Set Margins Often we find the margins are just too big. But there doesn’t seem to be any way to set smaller margins. It would be nice if the ability to set the margins were a feature of the software. Better User Interface The Software has a lot of features, but one often finds that it isn’t obvious how to accomplish what you want to do. Ability to Do Larger Labels Often we wish for a unit that could do wider labels. Brother does make some, but they are noticeably more $$$ and not Macintosh compatible.

Works best on Windows machines, since a lot of functions are not available on an Apple machine. That said, the instruction sheet is like a large map, and is poorly written. Very difficult to find information on how to use the P-touch software, not the P-touch lite (very confusing, to say the least). I finally got the labeler running on my Windows 8 machine, after giving up getting it to run on my iMac. You need to download the software users guide from the disk included with the labeler if you are going to use the labeler on a Windows machine. This is so you can use the many features that the labeler is capable of. Why Brother made this so complex and confusing is beyond me. Anyway, once it is set up and running with the full p-touch software package, it really is a nice labeler with lots of nice features. Still a little difficult setting up unique labels, but it still can be done with a little patience. Brother really needs to run some user panels on new products before they introduce them into the marketplace. A lot of the issues I found with this labeler could have been avoided, if the software manual, and a better installation guide was included with the package. There is no reason in this day and age for Brother to have a customer search around for information on how to properly install their labeler.... everything should be plug-and-play and not require the user to have expert computer skills to use or install this labeler. My Brother laser printers were a breeze to install, sure seems to me that Brother could do as well for their labeler purchasers. I love my other Brother products!

Great device

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-P700 Electronic Label Maker:

Other than it seems to require updating all the time, it's pretty good. I don't turn my computer off at. When I turn the device on, I seem to have to always do an update or something.

Great Versital Label maker

By QinM

from Reno, NV, United States

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-P700 Electronic Label Maker:

Easy to load, both the cartridges and the software with plenty of font styles and layouts. I should have bought one years ago. However the only issue is I'm now having print issues after only a few weeks of use and there is no code telling me what the issues is so I'm going in circles trying to get it to print again. Hopefully once it's going again there will be no more hickups.

The printer makes very nice labels and with Brother's label software (free download) it becomes very powerful and versatile as well. Being able to use all your installed fonts as well as clip-art and photos is fantastic!

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-P700 Electronic Label Maker:

This is my 2nd PT-P700 and I use them both. The very large print enable me to see from a distance. My vision is less than 20/20. I have many trays of items to label. I use large labels help me organize lots of documents.

Works and makes great looking labels

By Anonymous

from Wisconsin, United States

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-P700 Electronic Label Maker:

The only thing that doesn't impress me is the fact that every time to print a label it also feeds out any extra piece about an inch long which waste label stock with every label you print. I can understand that for the first label but not every one.

Easy to use!!

By unika

from seattle WA

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-P700 Electronic Label Maker:

Great product! Easy to use. I use it on my Mac and PC and it worked right away. The only reason why I gave it a 4/5 is because you cannot modify the format to eliminate the 1+ inch of blank tape that prints on either side of your target message which results in waisted tape and having to trim label by hand. Other than that it's great!!!

So so

By Anonymous

from Penn Yan, NY

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-P700 Electronic Label Maker:

I am not thrilled with this product. The editor will not recognize the printer as a printer so I can't use it. If I just use the lite editor, it leave a large amount of blank on either end that is wasted. This brings me to my next problem which is the fact that the different tapes are ridiculously expensive.
