I bought the brother label maker a few weeks back. Haven't got around to using it.

Found this on amazon

Comparison between the Brother PTH110 vs the Dymo LM160

If you are shopping for a good budget label maker, you might be having a tough time deciding between these 2 models (like I was). I recently purchased this model, and also had an opportunity to try the Dymo as well, and I feel this one takes the cake.

I conducted a few tests to determine print quality and durability you can see in the photos. The white label is printed from the Brother, and the clear label was printed with the Dymo (I did not have access to white dymo labels). Basic print quality for a standard font appears roughly the same on each. The pictures with the labels on the jar were taken after a cycle through the dishwasher, in which both labels held up great without issues. Brother advertises its labels as being laminated, and this does indeed seem to drastically increase durability as can be seen in my sandpaper test. The picture with the letter D on a piece of wood were taken after giving 30 light strokes to each using 600 grit sandpaper. You can see the clear winner in this case is the Brother.

Some other things to point out. Other reviewers claimed the brother wasted tape with extra large margins, however they must have been unaware that the margins are adjustable, with a default of 1 inch, but you can easily make it 1/4 inch. Sometimes however with the small margins, one side will be slightly larger, and include a cut mark, and you must manually cut it to size in that situation.

Also it shines with a greater level of options with fonts, brackets, styles, symbols etc. You can actually look up the pdf instructions on each manufacturers site (or in my links I will post below) to see more about what types of fonts, brackets, symbols each has, but in short the brother has many more options, and you can make labels that look far more stylish than what the Dymo can do. You can see the picture of the silicone label with the fancy bracket, outline lettering, and a drop shadow. I was surprised to find that the drop shadow even worked with things like the symbols, so if you put a heart in there for example, it will have the drop shadow as well.

The menus were quite intuitive and easy to use. Most settings were pretty easy to find, and I only referred to the instructions a couple of times.
Overall I am very happy. If you want an even better one (supposedly, I have not personally used it) you can step up to the Brother PT-D210, which has more fonts/symbols/etc but quite frankly, for me at least this one meets my needs well

Bought the $10 Brother label maker deal a few weeks ago and really like it, especially after getting an AC adapter. Just looking at the Dymo I would prefer the Brother because ithe Brother unit has 3 punctuation keys on the keyboard, and the function buttons labels are words instead of symbols. I also like the light color front face better than black, but that's a personal choice.

How does the cost of refills relate to other brands? Any good generic refills?

Just like printers. Ink is more expensive.

I bought the Brother on the recent great $10 deal here a couple weeks ago. I enjoy it as it's my first label maker I've used. I've already printed labels for myself and family.

Like mentioned, I found I could adjust the margins in settings and that reduced the amount of wasted tape. I could preview before printing and if there was extra tape, I cut it so I could save and just write on it with a Sharpie.
