Print speeds: Medium = 7mm per second. Fast = 10mm per second.
The P-Touch 90 label printer is the only printer available that prints on to “M” tape giving a limited selection of colours and sizes. It is, however, the cheapest P-Touch that features a QWERTY keyboard making it easier to use if you’ve ever used a computer (reading this would indicate you’ve used a computer at least once).
The P-Touch 1000 label printer uses “TZe” tape to give you a wide selection of colours to choose from the 6, 9 and 12mm tape sizes. It features an ABC keyboard which may be difficult to get used to (it was for me from using a computer with a QWERTY keyboard numerous times a day) but it soon becomes easy. This is the only printer in the lower range that features two available fonts.
The P-Touch 1010 label printer is the 1000’s bigger brother. Fast print speed, compatible with “TZe” tapes of 3.5 to 12mm with a large easy to read LCD screen, more icons and border styles. This printer however only prints with one font but with a selection of over 50 different colours and sizes of TZe tapes to choose from.
The P-Touch 1090 label printer is the sleek new better looking 1010. With all the same features in a more comfortable grip and stylish new look. Full features for low price! Its ABC keyboard has a more “clicky” feel to it giving you feedback that you actually pressed the button (almost like a smartphone when it vibrates on key presses).
The next printers in the range are similar but specifically designed and targeted at gardeners and their gardens.
