Motivation and Choice

I always wanted a labeler, from childhood, the time the labelers were all mechanical. Via advertising them in the comic books I read and wanted to have a, but I never had. At school name put in materials with pieces of paper and cellophane tape.

Decades later and I still labeling things with masking tape and cellophane tape. The masking tape often deteriorate and because of this misstep has needed to re-test and re-label a number of cable TV and Ethernet at home conduits. It was time to buy a labeler.

The choice by the Electronic labeler Brother PT70 It has been due to the brand known and low cost. It is the entry model, but enough for my household.

Unboxing and Tests

The Electronic labeler Brother PT70 It comes in a compact blister, with the instruction manual. On the back there is the battery compartment and the tape.

The use of Electronic labeler Brother PT70 is not 100% intuitive. At first I picked up a little. The WYSYWYG text editors (“what you see is what you get”) the last decades have left me spoiled. The labeler interface is more for WordStar DOS (yes, I'm old!) where we set sources, bold, Italic, etc. but the result only appears in print.

But soon I got the hang and now print labels in Electronic labeler Brother PT70 it is peaceful. It prints including accents.

Final Considerations

The Electronic labeler Brother PT70 It was an excellent purchase. Now I picked up the habit of labeling supplies and cables of all my electronics. This makes it much easier to find the right source or the correct cable to the power strip, the inputs of the receiver, etc. I no longer need be following cables to find which one is correct.

It is also easy to identify and USB cables to know which belongs to which device even when they are all together in the drawer, because I like to always know what is the origin of each cable, up to sell the devices with the correct cables when I solve rid of them.

On the downside I quote only the price of the tapes, which is not the most pleasant and the fact always be some waste at the beginning and end of each label, sometimes you have to cut with scissors.

Olá.Estou in my second router such. the first broke in a fall. It really is very good, but it has – At my point of view – a failure to consider: text goes over time, especially stickers subjected to heat or light – as is the case of the sources labeled vc. It begins in a few months to turn yellow and 2-3 years the text is very off. Because, I believe, It is to be a thermal printing. If not used in objects subjected to heat or strong light, hard enough.
