I bought this for convenience so I could make labels at my computer/desk rather than getting out my Brother 1400 portable. The software for the 1230C plus the computer keyboard are an easier interface than on the portable. The 1230 is very simple to install and use - I didn't even bother downloading the full software package - the self-installing app included right in the 1230 is plenty for everyday use.

I looked forward to replacing an old brother simple text labeller with this one. What a mistake. From day one I have not been able to get it to work. The only thing that worked was when I went for a home run using this for the baseball off my rear deck. I have wasted 2 days and a complete reload of Windows 7 professional 64bit in trying to get it to work. I did all the updates as requested/required. I am pretty savy when it comes to working a computer and another friend who is a programmer could not help either. Simply put this device does not seem to work under Win7 64 bit. A huge waste of time and I will not be using Brother devices again. I expected more from a name brand that usually makes good equipment.

Great label printer

By Orchids

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-1230PC Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Desktop - Label Print:

I purchased this printer to make plant labels. I have over a thousand orchids and I like to clearly see the genus and name of the plant. When dividing the plants, I able to make multiple copies in tons of different fonts.

Sorry, can't recommend this

By Radoguy310

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-1230PC Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Desktop - Label Print:

I pick this item up to make life easier for cable labeling and a few other things that needed clear labels in my office. No matter how much I tried, the printer would only print about a third of whatever was displayed on the screen. I tried adjusting the settings with no success. I need to find another product/manufacturer.

Good productd

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-1230PC Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Desktop - Label Print:

Use it all the time. Even got it work on a network. However, recently it has stopped working, or will print just part of a label. Reason, batteries are low. But it used to send a warning when you tried to print that the batteries are low. Now, it just stops printing, even in the middle of print cycle. Second, it really has been going thru batteries. I will put new batteries in (and I check them with a digital battery voltage meter) and within a week, the batteries are low again No, notice, just stops working. By the way Brother tech help is great.

Easy to use

By photo35

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-1230PC Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Desktop - Label Print:

This little printer works great, easy to use. Only one regret to the wasted label tape if you only need one label or if you print multiples. To get the most of the label tape print without or only one space between each label. Doing so will save wasted tape at the beginning of each label. That is why I only rated it 4 stars. Still a good buy just create more than one label at a time with only one space between each new or different label.

A little concerned

By Organized123

from Mississippi

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-1230PC Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Desktop - Label Print:

I have had my P-Touch PT 1230 PC label maker for a couple of years. Oh, how simple is was to make really great labels. Today, it has decided to not stop the tape from dispensing- even after it has written the label, it just keeps running and running. Now, I have a long blank label. Rolls of labels are expensive. Could someone at Brother tell me how to fix this so I can love my little machine again? I would also like to know how re-roll the unused white label back into the cartridge.

Fallen out of Love with PT-1230PC label printer

By 1CitizenJane

from Mesa, AZ

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-1230PC Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Desktop - Label Print:

I Loved this little label printer... It worked perfectly, was fast, efficient, kept my files and office neat and organized. That was when my computer had Windows XP O/S. Then I got Windows 7, 64 bit system. My labeler has NOT worked correctly since! I spend more time trying to get the icon to appear on my system than it's worth! PAIN in the neck!!! A HUGE waste of time and GIANT step backward...

I have an online sewing business and have enjoyed printing customized labels at the blink of an eye. It installed on my computer very easily and has worked like a charm. It works better than my regular printer. GREAT PRODUCT!
