  • 15 June, 2005 14:57

<p>Sydney, June 15, 2005 –PC Tools, creator of award-winning spyware removal and real-time protection software, has joined the Anti-Spyware Coalition, a newly-formed industry group that will work to better define spyware and develop best practices for software development.</p>
<p>The coalition is run by the Washington, DC-based Center for Democracy and Technology, and consists of anti-spyware vendors, consumer groups, Internet service providers (ISPs), computer manufacturers, academic leaders and related advocacy groups.</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
