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!

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

Though I bought it for myself, I used it recently to create custom labels while on the road for my company. I love the flexibility incurred through being able to connect it to my PC and save each label. A real time saver!

Nice product

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

I like the fact it does labels up to 1" wide and the software version is much better than the old version I had for an earlier PC compatible Brother Printer.

Printer is Great. Software is Good.

By mjd164

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

I've been using this printer for about 6 months. Mechanically it has worked flawless; no jams or misfeeds, and the print quality is great. I only print black on white text, so I can't comment on graphics or resolution. As several others have mentioned, the software is not exactly intuitive. All the bells and whistles are there; different fonts, text sizes, auto spacing, sideways printing. There are all most too many options, and they are not always easy to find. My biggest problem is the overly long feed on many of the labels. At one point I went to continuous mode, which saved tape, then the printer reset itself. I have no idea what happened, and I'm still looking for the way to get consecutive labels to print without adding 1.5 inches of tape to each end, otherwise, I would rate it as 5 stars.

I can't tell, it has never worked

By waltwin

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

The first machine that I purchased, after speaking to one of your technicians I printed one label but no more. The same problem repeated, that being when I select print something flashes on the screen but no printer action. I spoke once again to a technician and he advised me that the machine was defective and should be returned which I did. He advised me that the replacement machine would work as configured on on Windows 10. I installed the new machine and the same, original problem exists.

Good device but...

By m n h

from Florida, United States

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

So far this has been a good device, BUT: While the description on the box says that it uses the TZe tapes but does not caution that the older TZ tapes will not work in it. My previous printer would accept BOTH. Since I have a supply of the older tapes I am stuck, and Brother hasn't offered a method of replacing them.

By Disappointed purchaser

from Texas, United States

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

The biggest complaint I have is the waste of printing the tape. what I mean by that is how there is a 1" blank tape that is ejected and cut before the actual tape is printed! That means for every 12 tapes I print, I lose 12 - 1" pieces or 12" (1 foot)! That is very wasteful and costly. That I don't like and therefore I will not recommend this product to any one.
