This Printer is awesome. Software works very well both on Mac and PC. The only issue I have is the wasted 1/2 inch cut between each label. You can turn off if you print multiple labels at once, but I find my self doing one label at a time. Excel interface is very easy to setup and import a list of labels. I like it so much I bought a second one for home.

It's nice and simple and has served me well, but it goes through label rolls quickly, and it's been getting expensive to keep buying more. I have it set on the smallest margins so it wastes less space, but every time I print a label, it prints out a small blank label first. If there's a way to turn that off, I haven't figured it out. Also, I have to reset my settings every time I turn it on. Sometimes I forget and end up wasting labels that I have to reprint with the correct settings. But it's a nice, easy-to-use label maker. No jams or major problems yet.

        Comments about Brother® P-touch® PT-2730 PC-Connectable Simply Professional Labeling System:

        I've had labelers in the past, but each one required the hunt & peck on a tiny keyboard. VERY time consuming.

        My first experience with a brother was with a PT-2700. I needed to make a LOT of labels, around 250 I think, and I was out of tape for the old office labeler. I borrowed the pt-2700 from another department and prepared to spend several days pecking out labels and more time to stick them on.

        Things were looking up when I found that I could connect it via USB. I had no software disk (no one had bothered to connect it to a PC) but I was able to download what I needed from Brothers website. Installation went without a hitch and I was on my way.
        I stumbled around a little and managed to lay out my first label. I decided to do a little reading. I was able to port my spreadsheet data (about 4000 parts worth) to the PT-2700. After adjusting some settings for cuts, away I went. I couldn't apply them fast enough to keep up. The label stock was a big improvement too. The old machine's labels would smudge if you tried to clean off a little grime. Not these guys, they put up with a lot of cleaners without a problem.

        Of course I had to return the PT-2700 to its owner, but after showing the savings in time spent on labeling, it was no problem for the company to pop for a new PT-2730. I refined my spreadsheet with a template to more easily port the data to the PT-2730 and got more creative with some 1" tape. The task of labeling all these part bins has become a breeze.

        OH NO! Now you tell me I need bar codes on the labels? Consider it done. With a little more tweaking, out come the labels with a bar code.

        One last thing. I found that after printing a batch of labels, the last one wouldn't cut until you ran the next batch. I found that if I entered a space on the keyboard of the PT-2730 I could press the print button and have the last label cut.

        With the great deal at Staples, I picked up one to use at home as well. I read quite a few reviews on this labeler and many people complain about wasted tape when making labels. Not to worry, just spend some time with the manual and experiment. You will find only about 5/8 " of tape wasted per batch printed. Now if it would stick all these labels on...

        BUY IT!

            The unit has lots of features and is easy to use. Comes with a power cord so your not buy batteries all the time. I had a 10 year old Brother P-Touch machine that I was replacing. The laminated tape is the only way to go for exterior use labels. I like that it can connect to my PC as well.
