The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e is identical to the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 but includes six months of free ink if you sign up for an HP+ subscription. Even though the 8025e's page yields are just mediocre, its cartridges are cheap, making its cost-per-print very low. It helps keep maintenance costs down over time. It has a high-resolution flatbed and an ADF, meaning you can scan various media types with ease. Additionally, it prints decent-looking photos with satisfactory color accuracy, which is more than enough for casual prints. Unfortunately, its slow document printing speeds mean you have to wait a while for long print jobs, and since its ADF can't duplex scan, you need to manually flip over double-sided documents.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e is decent for family use. The low cost-per-print for both black and color documents keeps running expenses cheap over time and is easy on your wallet. Its flatbed scanner and automatic document feeder make it easy to digitize various media types, while the mobile app lets you print, scan, fax, and run maintenance tasks with ease. Although color accuracy is decent, the printer does print grainy-looking images.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e is mediocre for small or home offices. It has a low black page yield and prints documents slowly, and its ADF can't automatically scan double-sided documents. On the other hand, it has a responsive display screen that makes it easy to execute printing and scanning tasks, and it offers many connectivity options, including an Ethernet port for a stable connection to a network. If you need to print color sheets, though, it yields a good number of color pages.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e performs decently for student use. Its low cost-per-print for black and color documents means it's easy on the wallet. It has a flatbed scanner and an automatic document feeder to make it easy to scan textbook pages and handwritten notes. Additionally, it offers a variety of wireless connection options, but unfortunately, it doesn't support Bluetooth, nor can it print from USB storage. Unfortunately, it's slow at printing documents, so it isn't the best option for printing last-minute assignments.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e is okay for black and white printing. It feels well-built and provides easy access to paper jams. Unfortunately, it's slow to print documents, and it can't perform double-sided scans. While it has a low cost-per-print, the page yield is very low, so you need to replace the cartridges often if you print a lot. On the bright side, there are high-yield versions of the cartridges available.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e is satisfactory for photo printing. Its cost-per-print is very low for photos, and it prints decent-quality pictures with satisfactory color accuracy. It makes it a compelling choice for everyday prints. Unfortunately, there's noticeable banding and grain in the images; its narrow color gamut means it can't properly reproduce some vibrant hues. Also, it can't print on 2" x 3" format.
We tested the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e, a newer version of the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025. It's the same printer as the 8025; however, it comes with six months of ink through HP+, HP's ink subscription service. There are many variants in the HP OfficeJet 8020e series; you can see them in the table below. All of the variants are identical in feature and performance; the model number only changes depending on the region, retailer, and color of the printer. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8035e is also the same printer but comes with 12 months of ink instead of six. This printer is available in three color schemes: Basalt (gray), Oasis, and Coral.

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e is mediocre for office use. It looks nearly identical to its predecessor, the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025, but it has a higher page yield and a lower cost-per-print. Unfortunately, it doesn't have duplex scanning, and it's fairly slow at printing documents, which isn't ideal in an office setting.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e is better than the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e. The 9015e has a much higher page yield and a lower cost-per-print. It also prints faster and can process double-sided scans.

It has an extra input tray, so its paper capacity is much larger, and it can also automatically process double-sided scans, which is a feature the 8025e lacks.
The Brother MFC-J995DW is better than the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e for most uses. The Brother yields significantly more pages at a lower cost-per-print, prints faster, and produces more detailed photos. However, the HP produces higher-quality documents, and its input tray can hold more paper.
The Brother MFC-J6945DW is a better printer overall than the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e. The Brother has far superior page yields at a significantly cheaper cost-per-print and prints documents faster overall. It can print larger 11" x 17" sheets and scan them using its flatbed and duplex-scanning automatic document feeder. It can also print directly from USB flash drives. On the other hand, HP produces higher-quality documents and comes with a six-month of free ink through HP's ink subscription service.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e is slightly better than the HP OfficeJet Pro 6978. The 8025e produces higher-quality documents, and it yields slightly more pages at a lower cost-per-print. It also produces significantly more detailed photos. On the other hand, the 6978's ADF scanner can automatically scan double-sided sheets, and it can print directly from a USB flash drive.
The Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4830 is better than the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e for most uses. The Epson has better black page yields and a lower cost-per-print for black-only documents. It also has a better scanner that produces higher-quality scans, processes sheets faster, and can perform duplex scanning. The HP produces better quality black and color documents, but it doesn't print as quickly as the Epson.
The HP OfficeJet 8022e has a sturdy plastic body and a good cartridge bay lid dampener that closes the lid gently if you let go while closing it. Its power cord is detachable, so it's easy to replace it if it gets damaged. Also, it provides easy access to paper jams. Unfortunately, the ink cartridges are only accessible when the printer is on. While the 8025e only comes in one color, the 8035e comes in three colors: Light Basalt, Oasis, and Coral.
Update 03/01/2022: The 'Width When In Use' result was originally incorrect. It now has the proper measurement.
The HP 8028e has typical maintenance procedures you'd expect from an inkjet. The printheads can clog if ink dries, but you can use a variety of different maintenance tasks to return them to a working state, including printhead cleaning, printhead alignment, and smear cleaning. The printer also displays videos to help guide you. It's unlikely that your unit will clog as long as you store it within the acceptable temperature range stated by the manufacturer (59–95°F, or 15–35°C) with at least a partially full set of cartridges.
Since it has mediocre page yields, you'll need to replace the cartridges frequently if you print often. Fortunately, it's easy to do as you only need to turn on the printer and open the printer's cartridge bay lid upwards, at which point they'll be accessible.
The HP 8025e has a great color touchscreen. There are three touch-sensitive buttons at the bottom of the display for Back, Home, and Help. It's very responsive and provides audible feedback, and the menu interface is easy to navigate.
The HP 8025e has a mediocre cartridge system. Its black page yield is very low, meaning you may need to replace the cartridges often, especially if you print a lot. On the other hand, the color cartridge lasts longer, depending on how much you print in color. Fortunately, it's compatible with high-yield cartridges that can print more pages before needing replacing. If you want a similar printer with a much higher page yield, check out the HP OfficeJet Pro 9025e.
The HP 8025e has decent scanner features. There's both a flatbed scanner and an automatic document feeder, meaning you can digitize items like photos and multi-page reports. You can also save documents as searchable PDF files, letting you easily search through them on your computer. Unfortunately, the flatbed lacks extendable hinges, making it difficult to properly scan thicker items. Additionally, the ADF is disappointingly slow and will take a while to get through very long documents. Since it doesn't support duplex scanning, you can't scan double-sided pages without flipping them over yourself. If you want a printer with an ADF that supports duplex scanning, check out the HP OfficeJet Pro 6978.
The printer's cost-per-print is good. It keeps running expenses relatively low over time, but they may quickly add up if you often print in color. This printer comes with an HP Instant Ink subscription, which offers six months of free ink delivered to your door. The 8035e also comes with a subscription, but it offers 12 months of free ink.
The printer's printing speeds are alright. While both black-only and color documents take some time to print out, photos are out quick.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 8028e has a mediocre color gamut. You can't see the bright zig-zag line except in the dark blue, and it looks dark instead of bright and vibrant in the greens. This means the printer has issues identifying the most vibrant parts of the image, resulting in incorrectly produced tints. It correctly identifies dark and bright colors well, although blacks have a reddish tint. Additionally, it has trouble producing bright blues properly, as they have a strong purple hue instead.
The printer has decent color accuracy, meaning casual users can print natural-looking photos, and colored graphs for meetings are easy to distinguish. However, it isn't for professionals who need exact color reproduction.
The printer supports Bluetooth for setup purposes only, and you can't use it to print.
HP Smart is a fantastic mobile app. It allows you to print, scan, and fax directly from the app, check ink levels, and manage your ink subscription. However, you can only print some commonly used formats on iOS.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 8028e is fully compatible with all commonly-used desktop operating systems. On Windows and Chrome OS, the printer works well if you install the HP Smart application. On Chrome OS, you need to add the printer directly using its IP address in the system settings as it can't automatically be detected, and you need to install the app if you need to scan. On the other hand, you can use AirPrint on macOS without needing to manually install any drivers or software.
