Affordable, and does what it needs to. I use it for basic labeling, so some of the frilly borders and such don't impress me, but I won't complain about more features for the money, maybe I'll use them someday. My only complaint, and it's the same with every labelmaker of this type I've used, is wasted label material from large borders. I was hopeful that the selectable label length would remedy this, but it still has a large section of label material at the beginning of each label that I end up just cutting off. It would be nice to find a labeler that doesn't waste so much tape.

Brother makes a good product. This is an easy to use label maker with some nice features-very user-friendly, qwerty keyboard, lots of variety with types, fonts, borders, etc. It is well worth the price-but keep these things in mind...

If there is an AC adapter out there for this product, I have yet to find it. This labeler seems to be very touchy on batteries that are not at the peak of charge. Brother needs to offer an AC adapter-until they do, I recommend using rechargeable batteries.

Tape cartridges are a bit pricy, averaging around the cost of this labeler for 2 cartridges.

The label peeler was of no use to me. I was able to peel the labels by hand faster.

If it wasn't for the battery/adapter issue and the cost of tape cartridges, I would give this a 5 star rating. The product is very stylish and easy to use.

Unsatisfactory

By ragwingbob

Comments about Brother® P-touch® PT-90 Personal Label Maker:

This label maker has some desirable features, such as the ability to print two lines on a label, but the display is nearly impossible to read no matter what the lighting. If you cannot proofread what it is about to print, it is not worth much as the only way to see what it prints is to print it on expensive label tape. Furthermore, the instruction booklet reads like it is translated from some foreign language and is printed in tiny print that is hard to read. This review is about 450 words longer than it needs to be; it would have been shorter if you hadn't offered bonus points for writing more than 400 characters.

I saw this product on sale on an email that I had received from staples. I never used one before but I really like this product. I am still figuring out all the things it is capable of doing. It works great for labeling files and any office equipment. I would recommend this product to others.

Decent label maker at a very good price

By Bob

from Pottstown, PA

Comments about Brother® P-touch® PT-90 Personal Label Maker:

I had been thinking of getting one of these for quite a while, and happened to have some Staples Rewards, so the price got even better.

On the plus side, the label maker works great, and even comes with a decent amount of label tape.

On the negative side, it's really, REALLY hard to get the backing off of a label after it's printed! I finally figured out that I could use a utility knife or x-acto knife to carefully score through the backing and then peel it away from the label, which was WAY easier than trying to grab an edge with my fingernail or a knife.

The PT-90 also eats through batteries fairly quickly. When I first started using it, I threw in some batteries that I had kicking 'round (they were most likely partially used already), and it immediately started to show a"low battery" warning. However, the PT-90 still worked, so I just ignored that. After killing the first set of batteries, I put in a fresh set of Duracell batteries, but was only able to use the PT-90 for a few dozen labels before "low battery" came up again. If you plan to print a lot of labels, you probably want to choose a model that plugs in.

Comments about Brother® P-touch® PT-90 Personal Label Maker:

I have just purchased this item and have already been using up the tape. Very easy to use. I liked the idea that i have 3 different face plates to choose from, this makes it convenient if there is more then 1 person at work or at home that also has one. Great price, great look and easy to use. I would recommend this to anyone. I do wish it had an ac adapter. Im not sure if its the batteries or just how it is made but it is a little slow but all in all well worth the price.
