Disappointed

By Svein

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-H500LI Electronic Label Maker:

Compared to my PT-1650, the PT-H500LI falls short. My 1650 failed and I choose the 500LI as its replacement. On flag printing, the print font size is not user changeable. For repeat cable wrap you cannot use 1/2 " cable wrap tape. Unfortunately these limitations are not adequately disclosed in the literature and are key features in my use. The result - My poor rating

Great Product-Questionable Support

By newtobrother

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-H500LI Electronic Label Maker:

I received my H500 li on 04-03-15, read the quick start guide and charged the battery. From the first time I turned it on I noticed that the LCD had a blank area across the top. This area (approx. .10 in wide) left most of the screens with letters missing the top section. It took 3 calls to tech support to talk to a person, I reset the unit as instructed, the display remained unchanged. I was told that my problem was going to be given to the next level of support and I would be contacted in 2 to 4 hours. Ten days and I have had no response. The printer works fine otherwise, and I am pleased with the quality of the labels and ease of the editing software, although it would be useful to be able to save items to the unit for use in the field.

Great quality and easy to use.

Comments about Brother P-touch PT-H500LI Electronic Label Maker:

First impressions, it appears well made. Feels solid when you hold it, not like a cheap toy. Buttons are well marked and easy to read even for my old eyes. The display is backlit and also very easy to read. I like the fact that you can use the supplied rechargeable battery pack or your own batteries. We needed a printer that would work for regular labeling and for labeling wires, this does both very well. Printing is very crisp even at the smaller font size. The tape cartridges are easy to change and come in various sizes of tape and colors! The software installed on my machine with no problems, it even did an update right away. The wizard is very nicely done, many examples to choose from. You can even press a button to take a website to purchase supplies. I would suggest that once you have installed the software, use it! There are 3 modes, Express, Professional, and Snap. You can do a lot of things with this labeler that you can't with others.

This is the first time I have used a device like this. The price appears to be reasonable with all of the features. The instructions are very understandable with no problems. I like the rechargeable "Take-It-Anywhere" option as the work can be done in the field etc.

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.
