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.

Use of PT-E500
Is simple and efficient. You can use in many different application and is easy of use. The labels are no so expensive.

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.
