    Great label maker, but no adapter

    Comments about Brother PT2030 Refurbished Desktop Office Labeler:

    I like this office labeler. Works well, for a great price. You can choose the size and font and style of your label and it's easy to use.
    The only downside is that you need batteries because it does not come with an adapater. Other than that, I highly recommend it!

      The machine functions as it should. Very easy to use. Anyone can start using this right out of the box. I have not even opened the instructions yet.

        Comments about Brother PT2030 Refurbished Desktop Office Labeler:

        This kind of labeler is great for labeling storage boxes and bins in attic or basement (doesn't fall off after a couple years like stickers, or leave goop like duct tape), on shelves (so you know where to put things back in kitchen or kids room or home office), for notebooks or scrapbooks, etc. Tape is easy to peel off smooth surfaces and reposition.

        PROs:
        1) Durable -My 1st Brother labeler is still going strong after 7-plus years and being dropped many times. This model seems equally sturdy. I got a "refurb" for only $20, very affordable.

        2) Larger tape - I upgraded because this model can use up to 3/4 inch tape, which I've found much more visible on boxes in the attic or basement, instead of max of 1/2 inch in most budget models.

        3) Features: You can do one row of text above the other. Preview button shows how it will look, helps avoid tape-wasting mistakes. Lots of pre-designed label layouts, symbols, fonts, frames, designs, etc (though I rarely use). Many of TZ tape types/widths/colors available. Nice window on top of labeler lets you see exact tape currently loaded, without opening it.

        CONS:
        1) TZ tape cartridges are expensive, and there isn't a generic version I've found.

        2) CAVEAT: Know the price for replacement TZ tape. Staples' is currently very high, literally twice the price at some other big box or online stores you know. So shop around online first, print out competitor prices, and ask Staples to price match, which they will do. Otherwise, buy your TZ tape elsewhere if the price here stays high.

        3) Very easy to waste tape (large margins, tape feeding out after printing, etc), and instructions don't make it easy to figure out how to minimize wastage (it's possible though, see below).

        4) Menus in this model aren't entirely intuitive. For example, I've repeatedly had to go back to the manual when I can't find where the pre-set "blocks" feature is.

        5) The little backing curls (pulled off each label to use it) are really annoying-- they end up scattered on the floor, they flutter and miss even when dropped right over the wastebasket, etc. Probably true for any labeler brand, but really pesky.

        TIPS:
        1) ALWAYS press "Escape" (= No) each time after printing, when the "OK to Feed?" message comes up. This avoids it adding about an inch of extra blank tape margin after your label.

        2) Set to "chain" setting if printing multiples of same label at once, which leaves only small margin between each

        3) Enter a bunch of labels at the same time, with a couple blanks between each, THEN print them all at once, which makes only one wasted margin at the end (use scissors to cut apart labels).

        4) Better yet, when you print your last label, escape, then print a blank space once or twice (escape after each), until you can see your last label has just cleared the built-in cutter, then cut. There will be less leading blank tape for your next session.

        5) If you accidentally start printing label(s) again or see an edit needed, hit the power button to abort. Then turn unit back on to clear or edits.
