5 out of 5 eggsGreat printer

Pros: Once I found I could get a reusable roll insert, I only pay $9 a roll.
Print quality is fine for mailing labels.

Cons: It could use a better label catcher when doing many labels at once.

1 out of 5 eggsTypical Brother

Pros: Works with Mac.

Cons: Print quality is so-so, obnoxiously noisy when printing. Not compatible with any labels other than Brother DK at $38 per roll of 200.

Other Thoughts: After returning this (sorry Newegg, I still love you) I found Samsung Bixolon SRP-770ii and couldn't be happier now.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Printer for The Price

Pros: Great printer, especially considering the price. I bought this to replace a $3000 Zebra printer for UPS label printing. It performs well, and UPS WorldShip software picks it up and uses it with the 4"x6" labels flawlessly. The labels are a bit on the spendy side, but I suspect that Brother is selling this thing for next to cost to get the consumable business. The labels are one piece, with no separate imaging foil needed like on the larger commercial printers, so loading is simple.

Cons: Labels have pronounced curl, especially towards the end of the roll, but I suppose you can't get around that by using a larger core, and still have the printer itself stay so compact.
