    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.

    This printer is special because it has an embedded USB drive with simple software that installs as needed then goes away when turned off. It prints well and does all the basic things a Brother label printer should do - and you can download the full software package if you need it. However, if you have used Brother tapes in the past, be aware that any OLDER ones (i.e. not the "e" versions)have been made obsolete by the installation of a useless peg in the newer machines - like this one. This is a blatant attempt to make you buy new tapes when you upgrade, as I did, from the older machines and still have the tapes you may have acquired in past years. I assume this was also done to thwart the users of generic tapes (which I have not used) - sort of like changing ink cartridge formulas on inkjet printers with each generation to keep you "in line". Phooey!

    Deceptive Information on the Box

    By Bother printer is no friend of mine

    from Orange County CA

    Verified Buyer

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

    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:

    It really does just plug and play! Has software loaded on the label maker and a simple push of button on top starts that software! You can make labels instantly thereafter! If you want more complex labels then you can load software onto your PC. Given simplicity, ability to put batteries in bottom and take and work from laptop anywhere, it's just great!

    Only ok

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

    If you have a Mac you have to change the default printer setting every time you use the label printer and the change it back to use your normal printer. To change fonts and sizes is not at all intuitive. It also cuts of about a 3/4 in piece before it prints a new label

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

        Despite the samples shown in store and on the box the software that comes with this printer has absolutely no ability to develop barcodes. If you want to do this it will need to be done from another program and imported as an image. There is no way to control the margins and it wastes an excessive amount of tape.
