    I really love this little printer. I say little as it is a lot smaller than it looks in the picture and that is great as it saves desk top space and I mean the real wood desk top here.

    Now this printer comes with a roll of starter 1 inch wide tape and some amazing super easy to use software that makes typing a label as easy as typing an email or even a review.
    The first label to come out will be about a 1/2 of an inch blank which you throw away and then comes your real label. Now this looks like a waste of tape as in cutting off that 1/2 inch blank. I at first assumed my software must be set up wrong but found no solution to prevent that wasted 1/2 inch blank. I contacted via email the Brother folks and they told me that was normal due to the way the tape cartridge is made. Just make sure to check off "Chain Printing" and if you print more than one label only the first will have that wasted label and the rest will not.

    The tape just snaps in real easy and one can use batteries or the AC adapter that comes with it. The printer looks like a very stable high quality printer and comes with basic printer software built in. It is also shipped with a DVD with good Printer Software and I recommend installing that as it has all of the great features on it. You can easily toggle back to the basic software with just a push of a button if one so chooses to use that.

    Is there any feature that I would like to see? Yes and that is batch printing various labels with one print command as to printing each one separate, but no big deal as it just takes a few more clicks and time to print one at a time.

    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.

    This is so nice, I can adjust type style, size etc and print to the label maker directly from the computer. Such a time saver. I label things I never would have before!

    Great label maker!

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

    Initially got this for making quick labels for my files. Did not take very long before I discovered so many more applications for this.

    Set up went quick, plug in the power, plug in USB, put CD into computer and follow instructions on screen. The label maker has a battery compartment also if I ever needed to make labels off my laptop, but I don't think I will ever use it away from my desk.

    The software is really easy to use and has enough templates to cover everything you could imagine. Within 5 minutes of installation I was making labels.

    Overall, a great machine, makes wonderful labels that is graphics capable and is fast and easy to use.

    Highly recommended.
