I’ve always wanted a little Brother

Stylish! Will go well with the £1000 8k TV.


What does it matter? Do you use your plugs as decorations? Practicality wins this one!
I could have written them smaller, which would save paper and link and they’d look better, but they’d also be harder to see.

ps I don’t have a £1000 8K TV, but if I did, I would still label the plug because it’s hidden.

pps have you got a link to that TV?

He ain't heavy...
It's a really good, properly laid out (qwerty keyboard and number keys). Been on a few times at this great price point. Has a few really useful tools on it like sequential numbering, great if your doing Pat testing or patch panel layouts etc. Hot from me.
how much are labels for these?

i wanted it for home use to label plugs, cables and some smart switches? is this an over kill

Orignal Brother (which are the best quality) are anything from £9 up, cheapo copies are a few pounds and mostly ok but not as sticky.

Note this printer has a max 12mm width label which isn't wide at all... ideal for label smaller things like cables, sockets, sandwiches etc.
Bought it last time it was on our offer for the same price. Nice features but horrible tape wastage. Due to cutter location there is always a few cm clearance gap on every label you print. The only workaround is to set device to chain print mode but that has it's own problems and you need to cut every label with scissors. We are using Dymo label makers at work and never seen anything like it!

Unfortunately bought 5 spare tapes before the unit arrived but as soon as they are used printer goes as well. Such a bad design - well bad for customer that is

Yes Brother label printers all waste tape, best to print off a long string of labels in one go and cut into pieces otherwise every print wastes about 4cm of tape.... it's almost like Brother somehow benefit from you wasting 30% of the cartridge!

I use these printers a lot and find for more serious printing the desktop versions like PTD600 are excellent as you can use the (awful) Borther software to make some great personalised labels and be more efficient with tape usage. These are printers are around £60 though.

I’d say it’s overkill. Just cut up a couple of address labels and hand write them. Might not look as smart but it doesn’t matter if they’re hidden. Plus it saves you £20+ and saves a wasted gadget lying around the house that will eventually go to waste

You should have used a label printer!

Can still wonk a printed label.
Yes you can use labels, depends on how you want things tonlook. It's a really good addition to any home or work toolbox. I've had 1 for many many years. Just looks professional, everything from labelling a laptop, plugs, network sockets, keyrings, the list goes on.
Anyone else really want one of these but have literally no use for it whatsoever other than to mess about making silly stickers with?! Or it's probably just me?!

Or have a 9v adapter (with negative centre) lying around, as I did incidentally. Perfect for something that will only be used every once in a while.

Shame about the tape waste and price though.
