    Just what I needed to print barcode labels. Super easy to use. I had to download the software since my laptop didn't have a cd drive, but once I did I had no problems. I did a simple search on how to do it and the instructions were easy to follow. It also allows you to build a library of your most used labels so that you don't have to keep recreating. Its lightweight and easy to store. It also is easy to change out the labels. You just buy the cartridges and pop them in. It was a lot cheaper than the alternatives that I was looking at.

    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.

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

    I really love this little gem. It is fast, easier to load and is NOT prone to tipping over like the other P-Touch Labelers. I DO NOT LIKE THAT IT WON'T TAKE THE OLDER TZ CARTRIDGES. THAT REALLY PISSES ME OFF. I also don'[t like that it will not take the full range of Label cartridges. All in all though, this is a great buy and on sale for $40.00 (Hoo-Yah!!!) you can't beat the price.

    Brother Label Maker

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

    First off, love this product, it does exactly what it says it will do. Very easy integration of the software and plug and play capable. The labels are very clean, crisp and easily readable. It is great for printing normal labels, bar codes and QR codes. It's a great deal for the money, and Staples has it cheaper than anywhere else, including the online stores. The only issue with this item, is that it prints much less labels than had been anticipated. If you use the 'auto' settings, it extends and cuts about half a label off each time you create a new label. The 'tapes' are pretty expensive peaking 20 dollars for an appropriate size label. Otherwise great product.

    Not good for small print

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

    Making barcode labels and the small print blurs together. My inkjet printer surpasses this print quality by far using standard Avery labels. Would be good for just address labels with larger print..

    Works like a charm

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

    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.
