OVERALL We generally like the p-touch, enough so that I have talked clients into buying one. It can produce good looking, easy to read, clear labels. If you need to print the kinds of labels that this will print, it ought to be on your short list of candidates. The unit is intended to be portable and it does have the ability to run from batteries. We have taken it with us to client sites, but have always powered it from AC instead of batteries. THINGS THAT COULD BE BETTER Getting Software Getting software for this unit from Brother’s WEB site is a bigger pain than it ought to be. Why make us jump through hoop just to get the software? The process makes it harder to convince someone else to buy it, when they watch how much work it is to get the software so you can demo it. Ability To Set Margins Often we find the margins are just too big. But there doesn’t seem to be any way to set smaller margins. It would be nice if the ability to set the margins were a feature of the software. Better User Interface The Software has a lot of features, but one often finds that it isn’t obvious how to accomplish what you want to do. Ability to Do Larger Labels Often we wish for a unit that could do wider labels. Brother does make some, but they are noticeably more $$$ and not Macintosh compatible.

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!

Associated Software

By 

from North Carolina, United States

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-P700 PC-Connectable Labeler:

In initially playing with it, I found the associated software difficult. I would set the tape size (TZe-231) and length, then started typing the description. If I went over the set length, it would stretch the label outline beyond what would fit for that length. All this was much easier to set up on my Brother PT-1800/1810. I expect I am doing something wrong, so looked for a tutorial on YouTube, but alas. I really need my PT-P700 in order to organize my rather extensive personal and genealogical documents. P.S. One would think that after all these years, you could find a way to eliminate the 1" of wasted blank tape.

I bought this as an upgrade to portable unit I've had for years. I like the option of having larger sizes to print on, and that I can import images / logos. I've found I incorporate logos far more often that I though I would

So much potential!

By

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-P700 PC-Connectable Labeler:

This product has so much potential but it will not consistently work except in the Plite mode. When I try to use the templates, it crashes the program every time!

Works as it should

By 

from Reno, NV

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-P700 PC-Connectable Labeler:

I have gone through one 1/2" label cartridge, and the printer has worked fine. The main criticism of the system is the wasted tape at the beginning of each label run. I can see that this is necessary because of how the tape is layered with the tape, print and lamination, so I don't mind that so much. I would encourage anyone purchasing the printer to download the free, full featured software (P-Touch editor), rather than using the quickie, autoloading program. With P-Touch editor, the tape wasted at the beginning of the label run is less, and you can string as many labels as you want together, eliminating more waste, up to the limit of the tape on the cartridge.

Want to use it for inventory labels

By 

from Pensacola, FL, United States and Katy, TX

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-P700 PC-Connectable Labeler:

Seems to be very good, but does not use old TZ tapes (different discussion). Not enough info, data, specs, guides, how-to-do on interfacing with PC application software, like MS Access database. Loading a different tape is awkward in that side cover entails picking up the PT-700 and not a simple open-door-replace-tape procedure.

Pretty good overall

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-P700 PC-Connectable Labeler:

I'm very satisfied with all this can do, with one exception. There is a lot of trim waste. I've tried all available settings, but so far have not found a way to reduce the waste that's trimmed off at the start of each label. If there is a way to.stop this, then perhaps the instructions could be improved to give clear guidance. But other then this, it's a great little label maker!

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-P700 PC-Connectable Labeler:

This is an awesome little desktop printer! I use it mainly for producing barcodes for my office & customers. For this, it's really tough to beat. Combined with the software you can produce enterprise-quality labeling solutions on a small business budget!

It works great. The software makes it easier than the stand alone versions. The only negatives thus far are: 1. Constant software updates, 2. wastes tape at the lead edge.

Printer is Great. Software is Good.

By 

from Michigan, United States

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-P700 PC-Connectable Labeler:

I've been using this printer for about 6 months. Mechanically it has worked flawless; no jams or misfeeds, and the print quality is great. I only print black on white text, so I can't comment on graphics or resolution. As several others have mentioned, the software is not exactly intuitive. All the bells and whistles are there; different fonts, text sizes, auto spacing, sideways printing. There are all most too many options, and they are not always easy to find. My biggest problem is the overly long feed on many of the labels. At one point I went to continuous mode, which saved tape, then the printer reset itself. I have no idea what happened, and I'm still looking for the way to get consecutive labels to print without adding 1.5 inches of tape to each end, otherwise, I would rate it as 5 stars.
