Complex Beyond an Necessity

By bdmac

from Benton, AR, United States

Comments about Brother Versatile, PC-Connectable Label Maker:

There is no need for a small label maker to be this complex. It has more features than many PC's. I do not need two hundred or more fonts, and huge numbers of 'styles' or formats. What I did need was a good Owners Manual or Users Guide. I received neither of worth for the keyboard I use does NOT AGREE with the manual. The keys are different, oh, some perform the same functions as the illustrations, but not all do so. The display is too small for the multitude of display functions as well. My biggest complaint just has to be the lack of parity between the manual and the actual keyboard. Bummed out for sure.

Excellent device, works well connected to computer

By LateAntiquity

from Undisclosed

Comments about Brother Versatile, PC-Connectable Label Maker:

The device does exactly what its description says it will do. If one has used only the old plastic, embossed label type of label maker in the past (as I had), then the controls on this device might seem a bit intimidating at first. Similarly, the software (available free on the Brother website) seems complicated at first, since it combines features of both graphic and word-processing software. However, the printed manual (for controlling the device manually) is clear and thorough, while the online/software help function for controlling the device from a computer is exceptionally user-friendly. This device is versatile and has many uses around the home and in a business office.

Need to be a Genius

By Anonymous

from Florida

Comments about Brother Versatile, PC-Connectable Label Maker:

If you try to print labels while not connected to the computer you need to be a genius. It is like learning Greek. The instructions were written by a professor in a foreign language. There has to be an easier way. I build and repair computers and software and I would recommend this to any of my customers for ease of use.

Disappointed

By MacUser999

from North Carolina

Comments about Brother Versatile, PC-Connectable Label Maker:

PT Editor 5.1 does not work with OSX. It crashes, and basic file label functions like sizing and positioning do not work reliably. Purchased this label maker to replace PT-2100 when I converted from Windows to OSX. No OSX drivers were available for PT-2100, so I 'upgraded'.

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.
