Discussion forum

Look for help in our forum for printers from HP and Apollo.


Printer supports PJL.
Printer supports direct text printing with the 'us-ascii' charset.


For basic printing functionality use the Postscript PPD. For advanced functionality such as printer status and maintenance features, use the HPLIP driver (which includes HPIJS).

24 ppm 1200dpi evolution of 5Si printer

Optional accessories include 2X500sheet feeder, 2000sheet feeder, 8 bin mailbox, 5bin mailbox w/stapler, hard drive, additional memory, duplexer, and envelope feeder

It's a big, heavy printer, don't even think about putting it on a card table. Exceptional b/w output. Currently using with the Generic Postscript driver.
