    Brother PT-E500 reviews

    PT-E500 Industrial Handheld Labeling Tool is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wastes an inch every print. No fix. Pros: -Has Qwerty Keyboard -Computer Programmable -Comes with a case Cons: -It literally feeds and inch, cuts it off and then prints the label. EVERY TIME. I called support and they said that is just how it is. so if you print cable wraps on the fly a lot, then you literally waste half of the tape. It sucks! -Difficult to learn. My DYMO was super easy to figure out and make adjustments. This one, not so much. The cons out way the pros for me. I will be returning it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent labeling machine I use this product to label anything and everything that needs a permanent legible label. The same issue i have with the other Brother label printers i own is that it seems that Brother has not as of yet gotten around to fixing the issue of waste. Their label printers waste a lot of tape; tape which is not cheap. Brother needs to not only address this issue, but also fix it. I have been a long time user of Brother products and would like to continue using their products.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase and would recommend to others. I had considered the DYMO Rhino product line but could not find what I wanted with QWERTY keyboard layout at a comparable price point. I've a colleague that uses an earlier model Brother label maker and it works very well. I'm happy with what I have in the Brother E500 and it works well in my shop and field service applications. I purchased the PT_E500 with the intention of using its PC connection however, having lived with it for some time, I'm not certain I'll make good use of the interface. I say this because the handheld input process is quicker than I had anticipated. I'm a sucker for the black and orange color scheme which projected a robust, industrial build quality. Unfortunately perception and reality do not intersect. I'm not certain this unit would hold up to abuse in a hostile environment. i.e. being dropped and or kicked around. I've not identified the construction materials but it isn't nylon 6/6. This is subjective on my part but I would like to see, and would pay for, a more robust set of materials used in construction. Many people complain about 1 of tape waste per label. It isn't optimal but my work around is to print multiple labels at once and hand cut them. It is a process that works well for me as I typically print multiple labels at a time. The automatic tape cutter works but certainly not necessary for efficient use of the unit. Something I've not been able to get my head (and hands) around is layout of most handheld devices with keypad input. IMHO the keypad and screen should be reversed. Keypad at the top and screen at the bottom. This is a natural arrangement for holding the unit and text input. See attached pic. Good purchase and would recommend to others.
