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.

Brother PT-H100 Touch label maker

By 

from Watkins Glen, NY

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 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 

from Dallas, TX, United States

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 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 

from Devon, UK

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 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 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 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 

from Whittier, CA, United States

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 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 

from central New Jersey, USA

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 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.

Nice machine.

By 

from Georgia, United States

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 Handheld Label Maker:

I like the PT-H100 for its versatility. The instruction sheet is in such small print it is hard to read, however. Don't try to download it from the web; it is even more difficult to read because of the clarity of the print. As for the labeler itself, I mainly use it for labeling my binders, which I use to hold my collection(s) of postage stamps. I have tried to use other labels but they do not stick to the vinyl like these labels do. That I can print either up-down or straight across is a plus. It would help if the leads were not so long; that is a waste of good tape. Having so many other options than just letters and numbers is a great plus also.

PT-H100

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 Handheld Label Maker:

This label printer does exactly what I wanted, which was to label file folders and various bits of equipment around the church office. Once I mastered the menu, I found it fairly easy to use.

Wastes Tape

By 

from Georgia

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 Handheld Label Maker:

Model PT-H100 is an OK label maker for the price. The only draw back I am having is that I am going through a lot of tape. The lead on single words is about an inch of wasted tape that I cut off and throw away.

Horrible Manual/ Not intuitive

By 

from Reno, NV, United States

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 Handheld Label Maker:

The worst manual and the device is not intuitive. How do you make the size bigger? Or so it fills out the label. Well its not on the manual in a clear way. Some setting got changed and the letters were coming out really small and I thought you would just go to Size, Larger, but this just made an already tiny size slightly bigger. The only way I was able to get the size back to normal large was reset the device. Again not intuitive. Is it then in the width? After you get to the width prompt then what do you do? Not written out clearly. I was on the phone/ customer service for at least an hour and no go. I am an IT/ tech person that can eventually figure stuff out. This device should be more intuitive.

Great product

By 

from CT, United States

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 Handheld Label Maker:

This was my first label maker. I was amazed at the price I found this for. It packs a ton of features and was way more useful than I ever could have imagined. Yes the replacement cartridge are close to the price of the machine, but a new full one last quite awhile. I bought this for an automotive wiring job, and bought the labels specific for labeling wires. It made my project so much better. Also has helped out around the garage labeling things to be more organized.

Disappointed!

By 

from Texas

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 Handheld Label Maker:

Too expensive for what it can do. Eats battery life like crazy! The six AAA is a bad design. Should've been a rechargeable lithium to accommodate the battery consumption. Waste labels on single prints. You have to do multiple prints to keep closer spacing in between words to keep from wasting labels!

No battery life

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 Handheld Label Maker:

Batteries will only last 2 or 3 weeks then they are dead whether you use it or not. Contacted company about this problem and they said probably a bad set of batteries and sent me 4 batteries. We have 25 of these machines and they all doing it, it's not the batteries. we have to take the batteries out. Trying a different brand now.

Dissapointed

By 

from Seattle , Wa

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 Handheld Label Maker:

I wish I could give this 5 stars because it works great and the fact that it is hand held is awesome. However it has one problem that is really a major one. The button that cuts the paper sticks ever single time so if you don't mess with it and get it unstuck each and every time you print the paper gets jammed. Not only is it inconvenient but it wasted a ton of the paper!

Just OK

By 

from New York

Comments about Brother P-Touch PT-H100 Handheld Label Maker:

After calling tech support repeatedly and having the unit replaced 3 times, I have resigned myself to keeping this average machine. It drains batteries very quickly which is it's major downfall. I guess you get what you pay for. You are always hoping thats not the case
