damn YOU! Now i have label maker envy! I bought the handheld Brother PTH-110. it's a bit more compact when I'm tracing lines under the RV. Just thought it was more convenient size. It does a good job in that respect.The Brother PTD210 has over a dozen electrical symbols and lots of pictographs. But, they're not on the keyboard, so you have to press "Symbol" and then navigate with the arrow keys. Not hard to do, but would never have known how if HighTechLab hadn't made me curious!

I have an old one bought at Costco that looks like the same labels, and they sell refills. Works great either AC or AA batteries.
I do still use it, seems to work well and I love the symbols. I've made a number of labels, but not sure how many.
Measured it on mine, there is ~1" of leader and trailer, I frequently snip it off. So that's true. There is a "chain print" that runs labels together, but I haven't used it.
When I got it, I also got a few spare rolls in various colors, still haven't used up the original....Comes with a small reel of tape...
True again. It takes 6 AAA batteries or 9V adapter (5.5 mm DC bayonette at a guess). But, the adapter was never important to me as I always planned to use it "on the go". Still on the original set of batteries. There was one comment about how the batteries were constantly drained, I suspect that was a defective unit or they set it down such that the on button was pressed. Saw the comment " Requires a NEGATIVE polarity power supply... otherwise seems like a fine label maker", but haven't used any adapter. The case shows the negative is the inside and positive is the outside.No AC Adapter
Not my experience, every label comes out perfect first time for me....Every single time I use this machine I have to print each label two or more times before it finally comes out right....
I've dropped mine a couple of times once on gravel and once on tile. Still works okay for me.... BROKE on my SECOND use...
No problems with mine even in sunlight.The LCD display is extremely poor quality.... Very dim and poor contrast.
I just type, hit print, press the cut button. Symbols require scrolling.You have to wade through a litany of menus to "create" a label.
They are nice ;- )I love these labels. They are durable even outdoors
Like 3 times bigger than the text on my phone.LED display is too small
Never had a Jam, but also using their tape.the unit jams every time.
