QL500 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good choice! I bought this for my workplace but after practising with it at home I decided I liked it so much that I purchased another one for home use! It's early days yet but the few labels I have printed have been good quality. The machine was straightforward to set up (though I did need a bit of help!) and is very easy to use. I have spent quite a bit of time experimenting with different font sizes, formats etc but you would have to do this with any label maker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but one serious flaw The machine can only perform a continuous print run, if the labels are all identical. I bought it specifically to print address labels for Christmas cards, so obviously the 50 labels per minute claim, is not applicable. I feel misled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic machine I bought this as I wanted little labels, it's perfect for me. It's compact and easy to install and use. I love the different fonts etc and that I can put a frame around the little labels. It's very quick to print and the quality of the print is brilliant. I would definitely recommend this product to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic piece of kit I bought this as hate to hand write envelopes so I went ahead and purchased it. Since then I haven't looked back it was easy to set up with the CD Rom enclosed I updated the software to the latest version from the Brother support page. So easy to use it was a doddle. The software included is also as easy to use. Definately happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money I bought this to replace a label printer of a different brand which stopped working with a updated operating system release. The machine was easy to set up (although I did have to download the drivers) and quick to get some labels printed. Intergration with our address books took a little doing and some experiemtns but there is plenty of guidance on the web. Very pleased with it and just in time to address the Christmas cards !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what is says! When I first opened it all the instructions/paperwork worried me slightly. It soon became apparent that a lot of it was to cater for lots of other languages. What was relevant to me was very clear and easy to follow. I haven't used a disc to install hardware for a awhile as it usually auto finds and loads, but this was simple. It was set up and ready to use in minutes. Prints quickly and of good quality. The software also enables you to play with fonts, borders, pictures etc... No need to purchase inks (at crazy prices!) as it is thermal. There are lots of different label sizes to cater for everyone - even a continuous role! Everyone has a space on their desk for one of these I am sure! Great value for money. I'm a happy bunny! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Labelling the Easy Way I had to relabel a financial accounting system. This made short work of it. The fact that there are is a choice of the kind of labels I can print was brilliant. The thermal printing means that there was no need to care about ink and this is particularly important for me as I am volunteering in the first place and this would impact on the organisation I volunteer for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Labels made easy This is wonderful - great for printing single address labels as required and will also be great for bulk mailing at Christmas. Easy to set up, no problems downloading and installing the Windows 10 driver. The software is good and easy to use, with options to import addresses from another source, and a good degree of customisation available. I wish I'd bought one of these a long time ago. I'd used a different brand in work many years ago and had forgotten how useful they are. Different label sizes and easy to switch-out cartridges are the same as I already know from Brother, being used to the P-touch 1000 for round-the-house labelling.
