Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good quality easy to use label printer at a very reasonable price This product is easy to use, has good print quality, and is exactly what I wanted to label plastic bins in my garage and herbs, spice jars in the kitchen. Nothing too complicated, but produces two line printing simply and changing font size etc. requires no effort. Only issue is using the slot to start removal of label backing. A bit fiddly. A great product at a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product The PT-90 labelling machine is excellent. I wanted a clear easy to operate machine for labelling the dozens of boxes in my craft room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PT-90 easy label printer For everday use in printing quality but small and handy self-adhesive labels, I think the PT-90 must be very hard to beat! It's neat and compact, very simple and quick to use and if used with the batteries, is very portable. It's not the smallest in the range but I think it offers the best of both worlds. Portable if you need it but robust enough to use with a mains adaptor on the desktop on a more permenant basis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Instant labelling Good product, recommended by books 'Getting Things Done' and 'Cut the Clutter'. I bought from Rymans stationers, and had a few false starts as they didn't sell the correct power supply. The books recommended buying a power supply and not relying on batteries, so that's what I tried to do. Don't buy the calculator adaptors as they don't work & aren't the right voltage. The correct adaptor is only available on-line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Printer At last I can print small labels for myself without having to print them on a pc and stick to things with glue. The PT90 is all that I expected and performs very well. It is good to have a keyboard, rather than other types of lettering. It makes it so much easier to print. Plus, I like the tiny photo symbols that it has.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A recommendation sold it to me! My friend has an earlier model of the P90 (A P60?), and I've seen the labels it makes, some of the uses for them and how easy it is to work. I'm not disappointed in mine and pleased to find it has a label backing stripper, too. I should be finding the P90 useful for house-sitters' information later in the year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brother PT90 I bought this product as a recommendation from a client and so far I have been very pleased with it's performance and versatility. I, in turn would highly recommend this, or any other Brother product, if they perform in the same manner as the PT90.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother PT-90 7******* I was originally looking for a plug and go for my iMac like the one I have for my Windows Laptop but there isn't one compatible so I chose the PT-90 instead and find it very easy to use and it does the job just aswell... 7*******
