The Brother PT-2730 Electronic Labeling System is a portable label maker that can work independently or be connected to a PC for advanced functionality. The machine can work on batteries or with the (included) AC power cord. Users can choose from eight fonts, 17 frames, and a wide array of type styles and symbols. It comes with an automatic tape cutter built in, and a library of more than 50 pre-formatted labels. I found it easy to use; read the Full Review to see the pros and cons of this new (and low price) label maker from Brother.
