Got this for my 80 year old mother who likes to type letters and won't use a computer. She was so delighted to have a new ribbon she sat down and typed several letters. Can't believe htese are still made and that you had them.

Ribbon okay, product it goes in sucks!

The ribbons work fine, but the typewriter is lousy. I have problems with the word processor not showing what I have typed, the correction function sticks all the time, changing functions is complicated...Read complete review

The ribbons work fine, but the typewriter is lousy. I have problems with the word processor not showing what I have typed, the correction function sticks all the time, changing functions is complicated and time consuming. I liked my Smith Corona way better just wasn't able to find one in a hurry. When I find another Smith Corona, the Brother typewriter will enter the junk pile.

One of the few places to find this item

Comments about Brother 1230 Correctable Film Ribbon, Black, 2/pk:

I today's world of digital info our old typewriter still has a few uses that requires us to use ribbon and correction tape. This is one of the few places you can still find on the shelf. It works well and always seems to be in stock. It's old school but it's nice to be able to find it without having to order the item. The 2 pack seems to last us about a year and never gives us any issues such as jamming or poor print quality. Brother has made it so that it works on multiple devices and does not seem to have a short shelf life.

Title is accurate, complete and concise

Comments about Brother 1230 Correctable Film Ribbon, Black, 2/pk:

With laptops, tablets & PCs, one rarely uuses a typewriter anymore. However, as a clinical psychologist in private practice, I sometimes am required to submit certain claims for services on good old-fashioned paper claims. Luckily, I never discarded my Brotherss typewriter, and- luckier still -Staples carries the replacement ribbon cartridges. The ribbons continue to work well, producing crisp and clear characters, althopugh the typewriter itself now has some limitations. I'm just glad I can easily find the replacement ribbons at our local Staples Store and don't have to go on long Internet sorties to find them!

Comments about Brother 1230 Correctable Film Ribbon, Black, 2/pk:

I am one of a few still using a word processor rather than a computer, although I have a HP computer I bought in 2010 from Staples.
My only worry is that Brother will discontinue making the ribbons so I always stock up when they are available

Comments about Brother 1230 Correctable Film Ribbon, Black, 2/pk:

I called Staples to see if this product was available, was told to bring it in
and if they did not have this particular brand they could match the cartridge.
True to their word I went and asked for help, someone was there within a few seconds. My typewriter is old (most typwriters are obsolete) with computer and such, but I still need the typewriter for some forms I have to
type in the office.
Once I bought the ribbon, placed in the typewriter, it was perfect, I did a few minutes of typing to make sure, the ribbon was working properly. When I started typing the forms I needed there was not a word that did
not print u clearly. I proceeded to type about a dozen forms(3 pages per form) and all of them came out perfect, all letters, words typed were clear
as can be. If the ribbon were not of good quality I know the words I typed
would have letters that did not come clear and black.

Some of us still prefer a typewriter for specific occasions. Brother's replacement is dependable and of excellent quality.
