Others have already noted the difference between TZ and M tapes; the TZ tapes are also supposed to be 'better' in that they are laminated, while the M tapes are not and may decay more quickly.

However, the problem I have is that the "better" label maker (the one that takes TZ tapes) is not nearly as easy to use as the "cheaper" one, the M-compatible P-touch. I knew that I didn't want a bunch of useless features, so I bought the cheapest TZ-compatible P-touch I could find, the 1290, but it is about twice as hard to get anything done with it as the bottom-of-the-line $19.95 P-Touch that takes M tapes.

Anyone got a solution for *that* particular problem? Should I get a better TZ-compatible labeler?
