    I needed this label maker for new stainless-steel plant markers I purchased to identify my collection of hostas. I was apprehensive about needing to use the computer but after setting this machine up I was more than happy with the results. I use a 1" X 3 1/2" label and these are perfect. The instructions are perfunctory and the live chat with a Brother technician was all but useless.
    As others have pointed out, when you print a new label, approximately 1" of tape is jettisoned and wasted. I wanted to print a series of labels and had no idea how to do it. The Brother tech sent me a com plicated set of instructions on how to transfer label info from a database, something I did not need. Under "Layout", I discovered the "manage sheets" tab and this allows you to sequence up to 16 labels at once, saving quite bit of tape. This is not inconsequential as the tape itself is quite expensive.
    All this being said, it is easy to use and format and fulfills my needs to a T.

    The information on the box says that it is a connectable label maker for PC and Mac. It is connectable but getting it to work is another issue. I purchased this because I wanted to stop using one of the handheld Brother label makers, print barcodes and have the luxury of typing on a keyboard.

    It is not plug and play the way most printers work today. The print drivers must be downloaded form the Brother website which is not clearly stated in the instructions. If you don't do this correctly the Mac thinks it is a storage device and not a printer. Once you have accomplished getting it to be a printer it still will not work. The label software will launch but the label size is letter size. No amount of manipulation will change this to label size.

    It was necessary to write the company and ask for help. On the printer there is a button called P lite. It is on the top left and side of printer. It is necessary to turn the P lite function off before you can actually print a label. This information is not in the instructions.

    After two days and two emails to Brother I was finally able to get the printer to work. It does recognize the size or width of the tape in the printer. It does not auto length the tape based on how much text you type. This must be done manually. Also, it tends to print the last two or three characters in some unrecognizable form. Unless you are desperate don't buy it.

    Wasteful

    By Machine Shop

    from Windsor Ontario

    Comments about Brother PT-P700 PC-Connectable Label Maker for PC and Mac:

    Great product. I bought it on sale. Works well.
    However it does waste a lot of tape. I use the short margin but it still cuts a good 1/2" of tape before it prints.
    Seems it will cost more that the Brother I had to operate. The cost of the tape per label is pretty expensive.

    Good Label Printer

    By juici

    Comments about Brother PT-P700 PC-Connectable Label Maker for PC and Mac:

    Much more versatile Label Maker than the PT-1800 stand-alone keyboard type. Software is very capable and flexible. Numerous fonts and symbols. Completely scaleable. Easy to use. WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) on you computer screen. Very please. Recommended.

    Could be better....

    By Docc

    from Chsterfield, MO

    Comments about Brother PT-P700 PC-Connectable Label Maker for PC and Mac:

    Works best on Windows machines, since a lot of functions are not available on an Apple machine. That said, the instruction sheet is like a large map, and is poorly written. Very difficult to find information on how to use the P-touch software, not the P-touch lite (very confusing, to say the least). I finally got the labeler running on my Windows 8 machine, after giving up getting it to run on my iMac. You need to download the software users guide from the disk included with the labeler if you are going to use the labeler on a Windows machine. This is so you can use the many features that the labeler is capable of. Why Brother made this so complex and confusing is beyond me. Anyway, once it is set up and running with the full p-touch software package, it really is a nice labeler with lots of nice features. Still a little difficult setting up unique labels, but it still can be done with a little patience. Brother really needs to run some user panels on new products before they introduce them into the marketplace. A lot of the issues I found with this labeler could have been avoided, if the software manual, and a better installation guide was included with the package. There is no reason in this day and age for Brother to have a customer search around for information on how to properly install their labeler.... everything should be plug-and-play and not require the user to have expert computer skills to use or install this labeler. My Brother laser printers were a breeze to install, sure seems to me that Brother could do as well for their labeler purchasers. I love my other Brother products!

    Great Labeling Accessory

    By Vlberr33

    from Orange County CA

    Comments about Brother PT-P700 PC-Connectable Label Maker for PC and Mac:

    Extremely efficient label printer. Sits unobtrusively on my desk next to the monitor. Just press the on button and the app shows up on my dashboard. Open the app, format the label & hit print. Couldn't be simpler! Ignore/forget the printer & it automatically shuts off. Then it just sits and waits for its next use. Purchased this model to replace a stand alone P-touch labeler. Much easier to use.
