Brother P-touch GL-H105 – Product Review

Review by Michael Smith (Veshengro)

GLH105__Front1The versatile Brother P-touch GL-H105 is ideal for use both in the garden and around the home. Its ergonomic shape has been designed to fit comfortably in the hand and it’s so straight forward and easy to use, labels can be created at a moment's notice without any fuss.

There are easy symbols such as italics and quote marks which gardeners may want to adopt to follow plant naming conventions and up to 9 labels can be stored in the memory, particularly useful for remembering difficult spellings of plants.

The convenient rechargeable battery option means it can be charged after use and there’s no hassle having to locate or replace standard batteries whilst using it. N.B. While standard batteries are supplied, rechargeable ones are not and neither is a power supply or a charger. Those are optional extras.

Brother’s durable labels can withstand temperatures from -80°C to +150°C and are resilient to sunlight, humidity and rain, making them ideal for labeling plants, produce and garden accessories

The Brother P-touch GL-H105 is a more funkier version of the GL200 in that is is a little more – much more, in fact – colorful than the GL200 and also the desktop, so to speak, is easier to use with its “hot keys”. It is the ideal choice for the gardener who wants to have a label printer that is a bit more colorful than others and maybe is also a little easier to find when put down.

The P-touch GL-H105 label printer also has some fun designs to go with it that can put a little more lightheartedness into the labels rather than just plain labels or the wooden, round or such designs found in the GL200. Though I do have to say that I like the “wooden” label feature of the GL200 rather a lot.
