I liked this product so much, I bought two - one for my home and one for the office. It makes my life so much easier. I print labels as needed instead of wasting a whole sheet. People will comment on how professional they look.

This product is very affordable. It probably pays for itself by saving time and making the user more productive. Changing labels sizes is so easy. You don't need directions to make sure you're loading them correctly. Everything about this product is straightforward. The labels are a nice, vivid color. I've never torn one accidentally. In addition, you don't waste paper with the Brother labels. Only the backing is discarded.

Brother is excellent about providing support for this product. As soon as the newest operating system was released, they provided a link to download a compatible driver if needed.

There are very few cons about this product. I've noticed that some of my labels did not remain a crisp white color on boxes that have been in storage. It didn't matter though because it was not something I looked at everyday. Also, most retailers only have the basic sized labels - return address, file folder and shipping labels.

Good luck finding a better machine!

I'm glad everybody else seems to have had success with this product and has given it good reviews, BUT... It was fairly easy to set up, but on the second attempt to use the label printer, it jammed, eating a label and forcing little shreds of unremovable sticky paper into the slot for the print head. Dead printer. I tried to clean it, no luck, and the thing is too cheap to send back. It went into the garbage can a week after purchase. There is NO PROVISION other than returning it for repair for a seriously stuck label. Would never purchase again.

Excellent printer lousy labels & support

By billv

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Brother® QL-500 PC Label Printer:

I own or managed about 4 of these printers. The printers are excellent, not so the supplies. Labels do not always stick well on a variety of normal surfaces, new cardboard boxes, envelopes etc. If the surface has ANY texture to it, you will likely have the label lift at the edges or come off. I contacted support several times and worked with Tyrone. Even sent samples of the materials being used as well as label samples. After many weeks of waiting I contacted them again, they were going to ship out two rolls of labels as a replacement. Never received anything. Bottom line: Excellent printer, poor label adhesive and really lousy support staff.

The Worst

By MichaelCT

from Undisclosed

Comments about Brother® QL-500 PC Label Printer:

I bought this to use in my office. It supposedly interfaced with my work computer so I could print labels. I spent 2.5 hours trying to get the software to download onto my system (PC) and it didn't work. I got fed up and gave up for the day. The next morning I called customer support. That's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back. They had me repeat the same procedure 3 or 4 times. We ended up getting disconnected and they never called back so I boxed it back up, uninstalled everything that had installed and shipped it back. A week later I got an email from Brother. I opted out of their email updates and gave them the reason why. I then proceeded to get an email every week from them, each time opting out of the emails with the reason why. Today they send me this to review. Really!!

        Comments about Brother® QL-500 PC Label Printer:

        The Brother Label Printer is my best friend at work. It allows me to quickly create mailing labels, file labels, etc. I do not have to worry about selecting the correct label size and loading the labels into the printer to do just one label. Helps me look professional in a hurry.
        I had one of these in my previous position as a high school business teacher, and now I am a secretary at a university. I insisted I needed a label printer!

        My Second QL-500

        By Deacon2014

        from Adams, WI

        Comments about Brother® QL-500 PC Label Printer:

        My XP computer needed a new hard drive, but I could not reinstall my first QL-500, so I bought a new one for my Win 7. It took several attempts to load the drivers before I could print labels for my manila folders. I finally printed labels like I used to do.
