Great label maker

Love it. Simple, and easy to use. Maybe wastes a little too much tape, but considering how well everything works, that's not a big deal. Tape options and colors are many....Read complete review

Love it. Simple, and easy to use. Maybe wastes a little too much tape, but considering how well everything works, that's not a big deal. Tape options and colors are many. Printing options and fonts and pictures and other settings are myriad. Biggest problem is you'll have to control yourself and not label everything in the house.

Manual & 400 screen to hard to read

Manual & 400 screen to hard to read! The screen is too dark to read, needs back lighting on this kind of product! It's not fun to hold a flashlight and punch keyboard!

Awesome label maker

By Le kats

Comments about Brother PT-D400AD Versatile, Easy-to-Use Label Maker with AC Adapter:

I love that it's portable and you can choose to use batteries or just plug it into your wall and use it without batteries. There are tons of options on fonts and frames. The only downfall is the way it prints out.. uses extra tape.

Product was easy to set up and use. 6 year old grandson had fun printing labels out. Cartridges change out easily. I will enjoy using this in my craft room.

Purchased to use for clothing labels. Ironed on as per instructions. I like the name tag labels. Some are holding fine. Others come off easily but can be ironed back on. Pleased with purchase.

Overall good, but...

Comments about Brother PT-D400AD Versatile, Easy-to-Use Label Maker with AC Adapter:

Overall good, but... it needs a backlight as the screen is hard to read. One reason I picked it was because it has an power adapter. I hate batteries.

I love my label maker. It is, to me anyway, easy to operate and I have made use of it every day by finding something that just has to have a label on it! It's satisfying to have a way in helping organize my office, business and home..

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
