Pros: This works like all the other Brother Ptouch units I've used-the software is a little quirky, but it works.
Mac Drivers are available from the Japanese site- it’s a little odd, but not difficult to get the drivers (icons and the same model number make it fairly easy-not sure why there isn't a driver installer on the US site- but the Japanese one is in English. Push the switch to E (which the Mac driver installer DOES tell you to do) and then away you go.
Cons: As mentioned- the leader that gets cut before printing any label makes no sense to me. I realize it can't retract, but this seems just wasteful.
Other Thoughts: I use these all the time, and while the TZe tapes aren't the cheapest things around, they come in a wide variety of colors and styles, and being able to use your own fonts allows you to make things look a little more "branded" when you are labeling for others (I label a lot of installed equipment).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: USB3 and FW gives lots of flexibility. Bus powered is usually fine. Good build quality for the case.
Cons: Not quite as sturdy as the G-drive mini with the full aluminum case, but then it is also smaller. No external power option.
Other Thoughts: We've purchased at least 15 of these for transporting files around, and they've been fine. You can get a clicking noise if the bus isn't sending enough power, so it might just be that the ports aren't sending enough juice to get the drive to spin up.READ FULL REVIEW
