Labeling to help improve productivity and organization is a best practice that's relevant for workplaces of every kind - not just the traditional office. That's why Brother designed the P-touch PT-H500LI with robust functionality, in an easy-to-use, take-it-anywhere size. Its bright display, rechargeable battery, QWERTY-style keyboard, and Windows/Mac compatibility make it great for store owners, warehouse managers, building contractors, and other professionals who need the flexibility of printing labels away from their desk or connected to a computer.

Product Reviews
Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed 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 July 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product-Questionable Support 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality and easy to use. 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 alsovery easy to read. I like the fact that you can use the supplied rechargeable battery pack oryour 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. Thewizard 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. April 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use 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. October 29, 2014
