    Brother PT-E500 reviews

    PT-E500 Industrial Handheld Labeling Tool is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Brother PT E500 labeling Printer I got my brother PT E500 last March 28, 2015, straight from the box; I installed the lithium battery and the 6mm tape that came with it. I was able to make my first label the first time. It’s very straight forward, just press the labeling style button you need and follow the on-screen-instruction, and you get the label you need. The text looks great! One thing I’m not so happy about is, every time you print the machine will first cutout 24mm length of blank tape, almost an inch is wasted. When connected to a PC using USB cable, the printer will continuously spill out blank tape, to stop you need to press off button, this may be a problem on the PT editors’ software and driver. I’m hoping Brother will can come-up with software patch to solve this issue. Overall these brother printer works grate on job site.

    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 Better than expected So far, so good for our PT-E500. The unit is larger and heavier than first expected, but it works well and seems like it will be durable. The best attribute is that it's pretty user friendly. The included software is easy to learn and we have been able to load 100's sku's for use at customer locations. The extra strength adhesive laminated tape is very good also.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great labeling tool! I bought this labeling tool primarily for labeling cables and also to print barcodes. I love it. I can connect it to my laptop using the supplied USB cable and then design labels using the Brother P-Touch software, or I can use it as a handheld labelmaker and type in the labels on the device itself. The battery is long lasting. The laminated tape is high quality. And I love the look and feel of the hard carrying case it came in. What a great product!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Label Hogger I can't help but notice every time how much tape it wastes simply by the way it is designed. I suppose that's one way how Brother makes their money but really it's quite over the board and labels are definitely not cheap. Other than that, I like its features and the build. Battery life has been good so far.
