Love This Lable Maker

By 

from Indiana

Comments about Brother P-Touch Brother PT-90 Label Maker:

This is perfect for labeling around the house or in the office! It does have problem with a message saying 'low battery' popping up frequently (sometimes after every print) but I just turn it off and on again (very quick) and it goes away. Iit works perfectly other than that. I love the features it offers and they keyboard style key pad is the best!

Battery Low signal even with new batteries

By

Comments about Brother P-Touch Brother PT-90 Label Maker:

Had one for 2 years until "battery low" signal started coming up and machine shut off. Bought a new one and it immediately started the same "battery low" signal. Will never purchase another

By

Comments about Brother P-Touch Brother PT-90 Label Maker:

I like this label maker but it is not exactly user friendly. I use it fairly often and have to check the directions each time to make sure I'm using it correctly. Also the battery life is pretty poor.

Love that labeler!

By 

from Wahiawa, Hawaii

Comments about Brother P-Touch Brother PT-90 Label Maker:

This is my third labeler. The first was one that printed 3/8" labels, which I used onn my file folders and file envelopes. The second, a larger one, printed address labels, which really came in handy around Christmas time. It saved me time addressing all my cards, and believe me, I had quite a list! My third one replaces my first one, because unfortunately an illnes caused me to forget everything for way over a year, and when I went back to it, the batteries had corroded and I had to replace the labeler. This is one handy machine, and I will remember to remove the batteries if the labeler is not needed for a while.

needs a power adapter option

By 

from Pa.

Comments about Brother P-Touch Brother PT-90 Label Maker:

this device prints nicely but it uses batteries too quickly I used duracel brand and the first set would only print one time and it said they were low. I used brand new ones. then I tried off brand it would not power on I went back to a different set of duracells and got it to print about 4 times before it said batteries low and stopped printing. There is no power adapter plug in i can see i think one should be available to stop using so many batteries In addition the slot that is supposed to peel the back paper off does absolutely nothing. Other then those two big issues this machine prints clearly, boldly with many options.

Horrible Product

By 

from Milwaukee, WI

Comments about Brother P-Touch Brother PT-90 Label Maker:

We had purchased a PT-90 for sporadic usage in the office. After printing only a few labels, the "low battery" indicator came on, so we swapped out the batteries for new ones. The same thing happened, so we cleaned the terminals as suggested and purchased an entirely new batch of batteries. Again, after printing only one label the "low battery" indicator came on and the machine stumbled through printing the label. At that point we contacted Brother customer service who replaced the product (and was polite and helpful by the way!). Unfortunately the exact same issue occurred. Rather than go through the hassle of yet another return, we've elected to go with another product from a completely different manufacturer.

Meets a need

By

Comments about Brother P-Touch Brother PT-90 Label Maker:

I purchased this labeler primarily to label my chemicals in my photographic darkroom. I choose this particular model because it was the least expensive. It actually has more features than I need.

Labeler Is What We Were Looking For

By 

from Fargo,ND

Comments about Brother P-Touch Brother PT-90 Label Maker:

The labeler is neat looking and easy to handle. First time users like me should follow the instructions carefully when using it for the first time. I did that and it worked it very well. I am pleased we bought it. I suggest that good batteries be bought for it such as Energizer AAA Pile Alkaline. I called Customer Service a couple times and I was very pleased with their response. They were knowledgeable and pleasant.

Comments about Brother P-Touch Brother PT-90 Label Maker:

Works well, but backing is difficult to peel off label. The slot on the back that is supposed to make it easy to peel is worthless.

By

Comments about Brother P-Touch Brother PT-90 Label Maker:

I have no problem with the operation of the PT-90. In fact it is very easy to use. BUT, I can't get the hang of using the adhesive strip separator. Takes ME forever!!!

PT-90

By 

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Brother P-Touch Brother PT-90 Label Maker:

We use the PT-90 for labeling our DVD and Bluray collection. It's easy to use for new movies since it sits in a drawer and opens up with the last number used. We organize by number, not name. Numbering our 600 + library took some time, but was easy using this little, hand held machine. Who knows what other uses we'll find.

Good product for the cost.

By

Comments about Brother P-Touch Brother PT-90 Label Maker:

Bought the label maker on special and was a good purchase. It works well for my purpose. I did find that it's difficult to separate the back of the label for application.

    How do I reload tape into the PT-90?

      A:

      To replace the cartridge of the PT-90 Label Maker, pull off the cassette cover (the double-arrowed notch on the top side of the unit). Pull the cartridge straight up to remove it, inserting the replacement into the same position, making sure it snaps into place. Make sure the end of the tape feeds under the tape guides. Close the cover securely, turn the labeler on and press shift+print to feed the tape through.

      A:

      On your Brother PT-90 Label Maker, pressing Fn+R will bring up the "Undl/Frame" menu, where you can select an Underline frame.

      Answered on 2/24/2011 by Adam
    • A:

      There is no underscore and the person that answered this before probably does not even know the difference between underline and underscore as setting up underline will affect the entire template, not just the place you want it. This is an issue with Brother P-Touch's and can't be fixed unless you use a printer that is connected to a PC.
