Apollo Printer Users Looking For Printer Drivers and Support Are Not Lost In Space
A few years back, Hewlett Packard had a bright idea. They would compete with the discount vendors of cheap printers with a cheaper brand of inkjet printer with no reference to their famous customer support.
The result was Apollo. Printers that looked like HP DeskJet printers, used DeskJet supplies, but didn't have the HP logo.
Today, the brand is dead... but based on requests from users, there are still a lot of Apollo brand printers in service.
But what about support?
HP no longer maintains the myapollo.com website with drivers for all the Apollo printers. This site will eventually be removed, but you can still use your computer's built in drivers. Plus LaserPage will always answers for your printer support questions.
Installing Apollo Drivers
Windows XP has drivers built in for Apollo printers, to install:
You can let Windows search for you connected printer, or specify the port and choose from a list of manufacturers and printer model. The list includes most Apollo printers, and the Apollo printer drivers are included with Windows.
For other operating systems, go to Apollo Printer Drivers and Support
Apollo printers are not the kind of heavy duty units that one would expect to see used for many years. However, there's no reason to throw out one that works. We suggest shopping for a printer that will handle the bulk of your output, such as a refurbished HP LaserJet and using the Apollo for your occasional color printing.
