This is not as intuitive as I would like, but once I got the basics down it was easy to use. I too was initially unhappy about all the wasted tape, but I found a workaround. When I'm labeling a number of things at once, I just put a couple of spaces between the words or phrases and type them all in one long strip. It's easy to cut them apart when I'm finished, and I save a lot of tape that way.

I would like an on line tutorial. Seems like the PT-H100 has a nice printer but seems to waste a lot of tape for every label made as a blank area on either side of printed part can add up to not efficient use of tape, but means Brother sells more tape. I would say 20% of the tape coming out of machine is white space. I would like to change size but cannot figure out how to do that easily. Overall I like having convenience, just not sure how efficient it is with so much tape wasted.

Great Label Maker!

By LindaB

from Hartville, OH

Comments about Brother PT-H100 Easy, Handheld Label Maker:

This is a great label maker. Easy to use and labels come out neat and clean. Would have liked to know the exact item number of the replacement tape noted in the manual as I accidentally ordered the wrong tape the first time.

Brother PT-H100 Touch label maker

By TerryMichael

from Watkins Glen, NY

Comments about Brother PT-H100 Easy, Handheld Label Maker:

I bought this Brother PT-H100 label maker and I have not been happy with it at ALL ! It works great when it is working but if I leave the batteries in them it runs the batteries down every time. I have to take the batteries out every time I am done making a label. I spend more time removing and putting the batteries in than I do making the actual labels.

Short lasting batteries

By JolieM

from Dallas, TX, United States

Comments about Brother PT-H100 Easy, Handheld Label Maker:

The PT-H100 label maker evidently has a short in the design. Otherwise the label maker is very good for what it was designed . To overcome the battery drain design flaw I remove one battery and created a pocket on the back of the label maker where I store this battery when not in use. It is a pain in the butt, but it gets the job done.

Impossible to use

By richjenn13

from Devon, UK

Comments about Brother PT-H100 Easy, Handheld Label Maker:

Seemed a great buy. But then tried to use it. Wastes a ridiculous amount of tape with every label. Much worse, it EATS batteries. Won't run on rechargeable batteries, refuse to recognize AC adapter, Alkaline AAA last a few labels, then "Low Battery" comes up.... Steer clear at all costs

Ruins Batteries

By mcconahake

from Undisclosed

Comments about Brother PT-H100 Easy, Handheld Label Maker:

This product ruins the batteries. I have tried three different brands of batteries and the same thing happens every time. It will work with the brand new batteries when used. I found out quickly if I leave the batteries in it when I turn it off they are dead the next time I go to use it so I started taking the batteries out after I turned it off. When I replace them to use it again it will power on and then die before I can print a label. I have tried using a battery tester and all batteries are good but still will not work in this machine.

It Has a mind of its own

By lindie411

from Whittier, CA, United States

Comments about Brother PT-H100 Easy, Handheld Label Maker:

Well,since I bought it, it has - refused to accept the correct cartridge and only started working when the store manager where I bought it wasted about half the tape, it has stopped working saying "no batteries" when it had brand batteries properly installed, it has printed microscopic labels when I enter I wanted medium labels and by microscopic, I mean you would need a magnifier to read the labels, it stopped working saying "no tape" when there was a new cartridge in it (yes, the correct one) and I was unable to exchange it as I no longer had the receipt (accidentally thrown away) or the packaging, but in all honesty, I had used Brother products before with no problems

Nice and basic with a few useful features

By laboratory chemist

from central New Jersey, USA

Comments about Brother PT-H100 Easy, Handheld Label Maker:

I found the ability to print two lines of text on the tape, using small size font to be very useful for labelling small laboratory samples. Occasional tape feed problem, but it may be due to a mistake on how I use it. The ability to store 10 label texts for future use is very helpful.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
