I am started a new weekly post collection on electronics. This idea was inspired by Blue Iris, so thanks Blue Iris ! Each week I will post a new review of an electronic or accessories that I have purchased. I will give the pros and the cons of the item and give an overall review of it. Enjoy !!!
Not long ago, I have purchased an electronic labeling system, called Brother P-Touch (PT-70). It is a cordless electronic labeling machine, very easy to use and it does an amazing job! Thanks to the very easy to follow instructions, I was able to make dozens and dozens of labels for many different items. If you want to take the label off, wash the item under some warm water (ex: bottles, plastic/glass containers) or just peel it off with your nails. Don’t worry, it won’t come off unless you try to take the label off !
Pros: – It was very easy to use thanks to the step by step instructions (that came with pictures to show you how to assemble everything properly).
– I really liked that it came with a built-in cutter, rather than a blade (like the ones at the end of tape dispenser) which usually give an uneven edge and a bad cut.
– The machine is equipped with a peeler which allows easy removal of the backing from the labels.
– There are many symbols and accents that you can choose from which allowed me to personalize some labels.
– It came with a sample of the label tape cassette that allowed you to experiment. (Warning : The tape cassette is very small and won’t last long !!!)
– This item allowed me to organize myself WAY better because I have now started to label bins, boxes, notebooks, water bottles etc…
Cons: – I didn’t really like that it only came with one font to choose from.
– There are only two size settings (large and small), I would like this product better if there was a size medium too.
– There are only two unit settings (inch and mm), I would like this product better if there was cm too.
TIP: You can preview your label before printing it because I accidentally printed the wrong name before discovering this option since I skipped it in the instructions. OOPS ! Remember that you can learn more about this item by trial, error and lots of practice!
