So many to choose from. I have a decent one around here but need the deals on the labels, not the unit.

Search for PT-D210 labels on Amazon or eBay. Cheap and they work just fine.

I bought this and it works ok but it's designed to consume/waste not just tape but batteries as well. It runs off AAAs and it eats them up, presumably so you'll buy the proprietary power adapter.

It uses a proprietary power adapter that they want you to buy for more than the cost of the label maker. I had a 9v wall wart and a barrel connector like the one on the label maker. I noticed they reversed the polarity from a standard barrel connector so I did the same and when I plugged it in, the label maker displayed a message saying something like "unauthorized adapter". I wonder if the thing has diodes protect from reverse polarity or if it just dies if you plug in a standard 9v power supply.

The design of the printhead and cartridge is such that 1/2" of tape is wasted at the start of the print and the mechanism is recessed into the printer sufficient that a 1/2" of tape must be fed out after the printing of the label. So for every label printed you have at least 1" of waste tape even if you print out 1 letter. If you have a bunch of labels to print, intput them all at once separated by a couple spaces. If you had 13 labels to print, this method would save you 1 ft of tape.

I don't know if other label printers are more conservative but this one is definitely designed to waste/consume supplies.

Just use Eneloops. I've replaced every battery in my house with Eneloops and have never been happier. Plus no more battery leaks. Eneloops can't leak, there is no liquid inside them.

The label maker requires special tape cartridges. The label maker is a mini sublimation printer.

The standard tape is composed of 3 layers a dye layer, label, and an adhesive cover. The dye layer has a heat sensitive dye applied to it, the label layer has an adhesive back and is sandwiched against dye layer, the adhesive cover is sandwiched against the adhesive side of the label layer. When you print a label, the print head heats up and causes the dye to melt off the dye layer and adhere to the label layer. The dye layer is then peeled off and rolled up inside the tape cartridge as the other two layers are ejected. You can then peel off the adhesive cover layer to expose the adhesive on the back of the label.
