VP must stand for Value Product!
These are initial impressions: All the literature in the box in so many languages was scant and unhelpful. I registered the product online with ease, but the Brother website was unable to connect me to the Download Manual link. I did find this very quickly via a straight Google search. I printed out the 17 page download and cheerfully altered the "Printed in China" caption to "Printed in My Den."
The manual is clear and helpful throughout, providing all the necessary information.
It's a lovely machine to use. The cassette loads easily and everything is easy to learn. I was soon printing out good labels galore.
The only thing I haven't beaten yet is label length, so I guess the length and check via preview always before printing. In "Auto" and "Faceplate" I never got any message of character "Overspill" etc. Instead, the machine seems to reduce the character size to fit label length, this to a inappropriate size for labeling. So that Preview Button is very important.
In every other aspect, I love this machine, especially the comprehensive range of characters and styles. I am also glad I bought the machine with supplied AC adaptor. The carry case could have been much better design for the packing of the cable and spare cassettes carried better.
I like my purchase very much and hope it will give many years of good service.
