5 out of 5 eggsLoaded With Features

Pros: Full featured label printer. Includes PC/Mac software to automate label creation and allows TrueType font usage.

Cons: Tapes can be pricey, shop around.

Other Thoughts: Having everything in one case is a lifesaver. Case will also hold 4-5 tape cartridges and 8 extra AA batteries.
