The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 is a compact, all-in-one inkjet printer with good scanning features and photo printing capabilities. It feels well-built thanks to its solid plastic body, and it also features a responsive touchscreen. Also, it has a high-resolution scanner with hinges that you can extend to digitize thicker materials, such as magazines or textbooks. The color accuracy and photo printing quality are decent, and photos come out vibrant, but there's a bit of banding in gray areas. Unfortunately, the cost-per-print is high, and the page yields are low for black-only text documents. While it prints photos relatively quickly, it has a slow printing speed for black documents. Note that this printer has been replaced by the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e.

Our Verdict

6.9 Family

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 is an adequate printer for family use. It has a flatbed scanner with a high scan resolution, which is great for scanning old photos and documents. It has decent color accuracy and photo printing quality, but there's some banding in gray areas, and fine details may be lost during printing. Unfortunately, the black ink cartridge has a low yield and needs replacing often.

Pros
  • Faster at printing colored documents.
  • Satisfactory photo printing quality and color accuracy.
Cons
  • No duplex scanning.
  • Can't print 2" x 3" photo size paper.
5.6 Small/Home Office

Though the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 is marketed as an all-in-one home office printer, its performance for this use is disappointing. Although the printer feels well-built and has a high-resolution scanner with an automatic document feeder, it can't perform duplex scanning, so you'll have to manually flip the pages if you're scanning longer documents. Additionally, it has a high cost-per-print, and you'll have to wait for a bit for the first page to print, and subsequent pages aren't much faster.

Pros
  • Good design and build quality.
  • Great connectivity options.
Cons
  • Extremely low black ink yield.
  • Disappointing cost-per-print for black ink documents.
  • No duplex scanning.
5.7 Student

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 is a disappointing choice for students. Though its compact size would fit well in a dorm room, it has a high cost-per-print and slow print speed for black-only text documents. It has an automatic document feeder, but it can't perform duplex scanning automatically. Additionally, you can raise the scanner lid's hinges to accommodate thicker materials, such as textbooks, to scan; however, the hinges feel fragile and may be hard to re-align if over-extended.

Pros
  • Faster at printing colored documents.
  • Great connectivity options.
Cons
  • Extremely low black ink yield.
  • Disappointing cost-per-print for black ink documents.
  • No duplex scanning.
5.7 Black & White

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 is a disappointing choice for black and white printing. It has a low page yield, meaning you'll have to replace the cartridge more frequently. The cost-per-print for black-only text documents is high, and the print speed is slow. Although it has an automatic document feeder, it can't perform automatic duplex scanning, so you'll have to manually flip the pages on longer documents.

Pros
  • Automatic document feeder.
  • Good design and build quality.
Cons
  • Extremely low black ink yield.
  • Disappointing cost-per-print for black ink documents.
  • No duplex scanning.
7.4 Casual Photo

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 performs decently for casual photo printing. The color accuracy is satisfactory enough for photos to look vibrant, though it might not be adequate for professionals seeking exact color reproduction. It prints photos relatively quickly, but there may be some banding in gray areas, and some finer details may be lost.

Pros
  • Good design and build quality.
  • Satisfactory photo printing quality and color accuracy.
Cons
  • Can't print 2" x 3" photo size paper.
  • Only decent color page yield.

Build & Design Quality

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 has a good build quality and design. Its plastic body feels solid and sturdy, and you can easily access paper jams from the top of the printer. Unfortunately, the front paper tray may have some resistance while opening and closing it, and the scanner lid's hinges are fragile and hard to align back if you lift the scanner lid too high.

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 has a poor cartridge system. The black cartridge runs out of ink quickly and often needs replacing, which increases costs over time. On the upside, the color cartridges last slightly longer, and there are high-yield cartridges available should you need them. Also, third-party ink isn't available to purchase.

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 has great scanning features. Its flatbed scanner is great for bulky or fragile items like textbooks or old photos, while the feeder is more suitable for paper documents. You can extend the scanner lid's hinges to fit thicker items. However, the lid is prone to coming off its hinges, and it's hard to re-align if it's extended too far. While the flatbed isn't large enough to scan legal documents or tabloid pages, it's more than enough for scanning typical letter-format items. The automatic document feeder (ADF) is an additional feature that makes it easy to scan multiple documents in a row, though it can't perform automatic duplex scanning. If you want a printer with an ADF that supports duplex scanning, check out the HP OfficeJet Pro 6978.

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025's cost-per-print is okay. Its low black page yield leads to more frequent replacement of the black ink cartridge, increasing the cost significantly the more you print. The color cartridges have a better page yield but are also more expensive, making the cost-per-print almost identical overall. The HP Instant Ink subscription is a service that lets you print a set number of pages per month in exchange for a monthly subscription fee. More expensive tiers let you print more pages. It also automatically sends you replacement cartridges once the printer detects that it's running low on ink. If you'd like a printer with a lower cost-per-print, check out the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-3820.

Keep in mind that even if you print only in black, most inkjet printers continue using the color cartridges for servicing tasks, so you will likely still need to replace them eventually.

This printer has decent printing quality. While the colors are vibrant, it lacks fine details, and shadowy areas aren't well-defined. There's also some banding in gray areas. If you're looking for a printer that can print higher-quality photos, check out the Canon PIXMA TS6320.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025, and it has two variants. The OfficeJet Pro 8035 is the same printer, but it comes with a four-month subscription to HP Instant Ink, and it's available in three different colors. The OfficeJet Pro 8028 also comes with an ink subscription, but it's a Costco exclusive. We expect our tests to apply to all variants of this printer.

Note that this printer has been replaced by the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e.

Compared To Other Printers

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 is a compact, all-in-one inkjet printer. It's slow for an office printer, and it doesn't have duplex scanning like some other options, so you'll need to manually flip over double-sided documents. Unlike the HP OfficeJet Pro 7740, another home office printer, the 8025 has a low page yield, and the cartridges need replacing often.

For other options, check out our recommendations for the best office printers, the best all-in-one printers, and the best printers with cheap ink.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e is the replacement of the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025. The 8025e has a much higher page yield and a much lower cost-per-print, and it also produces significantly more accurate-looking colors. Also, the 8025e comes with HP Plus, which offers a free ink subscription for six months.

HP OfficeJet Pro 9015

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is overall a better printer than the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025. The 9015 yields significantly more pages, it supports duplex scanning, and its cost-per-print is more affordable. It also has a much quicker printing speed and better photo printing quality. On the other hand, the 8025 has slightly better color accuracy.

HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e is much better than the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025. The 9015e has a significantly higher page yield, so you won't have to worry about changing your cartridges for a while. This also means that the cost of printing remains low over time. The 9015e also prints pages faster, has a USB port so you can print off a USB thumb drive, and the sheetfed scanner supports duplex scanning.

HP ENVY Photo 7855

The HP ENVY Photo 7855 is better for family use than the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025. The ENVY has a slightly lower cost-per-print for black-only documents and it's able to print these same documents a bit quicker. It supports Bluetooth printing and printing directly off a USB key. Conversely, the OfficeJet feels better built, and its display screen is better as well. Although its cartridges don't yield a lot of pages before they need to be replaced, its three separate color cartridges yield more than the ENVY's one tricolor cartridge.

HP OfficeJet Pro 7740

The HP OfficeJet Pro 7740 is an overall better printer than the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025. The 7740 has a much lower cost-per-print, much faster print speed, and much higher quality of photo printing. It also has a scanner with an automatic document feeder that can perform duplex scanning, which the 8025 can't. On the other hand, the 8025 is smaller and can fit in more compact areas such as dorm rooms or small desks. 

HP ENVY 6455e

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 and the HP ENVY 6455e are inkjet printers designed for different uses. The 8025 is a better choice for offices since it has a fax feature, a slightly faster printing speed, an Ethernet port, and it supports legal-size sheets. While its color page yield is much higher than the 6455e's, it's only marginally higher for black pages. On the other hand, the 6455e is a family printer with amazing color accuracy and decent photo printing quality.

HP OfficeJet Pro 9025e

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 and the HP OfficeJet Pro 9025e are both all-in-one inkjet printers, but the 9025e is a much better printer overall. The 9025e has much higher page yields and a much better cost-per-print, and it prints significantly faster. Its automatic document feeder can duplex scan, and it can print directly from USB flash drives.

HP ENVY 6055

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 and the HP ENVY 6055 are all-in-one color inkjet printers, but the 8025 is better for small or home offices. The 8025 has a great touchscreen display, an ADF, faxing capabilities, and an Ethernet port. It supports printing on legal-size paper, prints much faster, and has much better color document and photo yields and cost-per-print. The 6055 is better for casual photos, as it has significantly better color accuracy and printed photo quality.

HP ENVY Photo 7155

The HP ENVY Photo 7155 and the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 are similarly performing printers with different strengths. The 7155 is more compact, making it well-suited for small spaces, and it has a slightly lower cost-per-print for black-only printing. It also has better color accuracy and supports external storage. Conversely, the 8025 feels better built and has an automatic document feeder. It also yields more pages and is slightly quicker at printing black-text documents. Lastly, it has an Ethernet port.

HP ENVY Pro 6455

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 and the HP ENVY Pro 6455 are both all-in-one inkjet printers that perform similarly. The 8025 has a much higher color page yield and a lower cost-per-print for photos and color documents. It also prints faster and has an Ethernet port, which can be useful for small businesses.

HP OfficeJet Pro 9025

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9025 is much better than the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025. The 9025 has a much higher page yield, a significantly lower cost-per-print, and a faster printing speed. It can scan double-sided sheets automatically, and it can print directly off a USB thumb drive. While the color accuracy is worse than the 8025, produced photos look a bit nicer.

Brother HL-L2350DW

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 and the Brother HL-L2350DW are printers with very different capabilities. The HP is an all-in-one inkjet printer with a scanner and color printing abilities whereas the Brother is a monochrome laser printer with no scanner. The HP is a better choice if you're looking to perform color printing or scanning tasks, but if you're only printing black and white text documents, the Brother has a low cost-per-print and a quick printing speed. 

Brother MFC-J805DW INKvestment Tank

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 and the Brother MFC-J805DW INKvestment Tank are both all-in-one color inkjet printers. However, the Brother is better for families and students, with a superior cost-per-print, higher page yields, and a much better companion app. On the other hand, the HP has greater color accuracy, prints more quickly, and has an Ethernet port.

Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4830

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 and the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4830 are both all-in-one inkjet printers, but the Epson is much better overall. It has an excellent cost-per-print for both color and black-only documents, and the design and build quality feel much better. The Epson also prints higher-quality photos. On the other hand, the HP is much more compact than the Epson, so it'll fit in smaller spaces such as dorms. 

Epson WorkForce Pro WF-3820

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 and the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-3820 are both all-in-one inkjet printers, but the Epson is a better printer overall. The Epson has a lower cost-per-print, a faster printing speed, and it can print directly from external storage devices. Also, both printers have decent photo printing quality, but the Epson has better color accuracy. 

Canon PIXMA TS6420

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 and the Canon PIXMA TS6420 are similarly performing all-in-one inkjet printers. The Canon has a slightly lower cost-per-print for black and color documents, and it prints photos at a higher quality than the HP. However, the HP feels better built, and it has a faster printing speed, an automatic document feeder, and a responsive touch screen. 

Canon PIXMA TR4520

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 and the Canon PIXMA TR4520 are similar all-in-one inkjet printers, but the HP performs better. The HP has a lower cost-per-print, faster printing speed, and a higher build quality than the Canon. The Canon also only uses two cartridges whereas the HP has four, so you'll likely have to replace the ink in the Canon more frequently. The Canon, however, prints higher-quality photos. 

Brother HL-L2390DW

The Brother HL-L2390DW and the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 are two very differently designed printers. The Brother is a monochrome laser printer with an excellent toner cartridge system which helps to keep its overall cost-per-print very low. Its print speed is much quicker too, and it has a better companion app. However, the HP is a color inkjet printer, so it has better color accuracy and photo printing quality. It also has an automatic document feeder as well as an Ethernet port.
