The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 All-in-One Wireless printer is a versatile inkjet model that's great for most uses. It has a high page yield for both black and color documents, resulting in an amazingly low cost-per-print. It's equipped with a high-resolution flatbed scanner for fragile or thick items, as well as a sheetfed scanner that can automatically process double-sided, multi-page documents. It offers a fantastic range of wired and wireless connection options, but unfortunately, it doesn't support Bluetooth printing. While photo printing quality is great, color accuracy is only okay, but it should be fine for casual use. It's also known as the HP OfficeJet Pro 9018 at Costco. Note that this printer has been replaced with the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e.

Build & Design Quality

The HP OfficeJet 9015 has a solid gray and white plastic body that feels sturdy. Just like the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025, you can slightly raise the scanner lid's hinges, which is good if you want to scan larger objects. However, if you overextend the lid, it comes off the hinges and exposes wires. The scanner should normally close without a problem as long as the hinges are aligned, but you might have a difficult time getting them in place. The front paper tray also isn't easy to open or close. On the upside, the ink cartridges are easily accessible by opening the cover, and paper jams are reachable by lifting the top of the scanner lid.

Update 02/23/2021: We remeasured the screen size because we originally measured the borders. This makes the screen size a bit smaller, and we've updated the Display Screen score accordingly.

Much like other HP printers, the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 has a great color touchscreen. It can be vertically tilted so you can see it from most angles. Its touch controls are responsive, easy to use, and provide audio feedback.

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 has a great cartridge system. You should get a good number of pages from both the black and color ink cartridges before you need to replace them. If you still need more ink, there are high-yield cartridges available that should last you even longer, though we haven't tested them. There aren't any third-party cartridges available.

It has fantastic scanner features. It's equipped with a high-resolution flatbed scanner that's great for scanning fragile or thick items. Also, it has an automatic document feeder to easily process multi-page documents, and it supports duplex scanning, so it can automatically process double-sided sheets.

The cost-per-print is excellent. Printing black-only text documents is very affordable, and color documents and photos are also very cost-effective. You can also register for HP's Instant Ink subscription, which automatically sends you ink cartridges whenever you're running low, based on how much you print per month. If you're looking for an inkjet printer with an even better cost-per-print, check out the Canon PIXMA G7020.

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

The HP 9015's printing speed is great. While the first page of a black text document can be slow to print, subsequent pages print reasonably faster. Color and photo prints print quickly, too. If you have a lot of pages to print, the input tray holds a lot of sheets, so you shouldn't have to refill it too often.

Its color accuracy is only okay. While it should be fine for casual photos and adding color to a report, it isn't recommended for tasks that require exact color reproduction.

It also supports printing via Apple AirPrint and Mopria Print Service. If you prefer to use it wired, there's an Ethernet port and a USB port to plug it directly into your computer. Unlike the Epson WorkForce WF-2830 or the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025, this printer has a USB input for thumb drives.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015, which is also known as the HP OfficeJet Pro 9018 at Costco. There's a replacement model called the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e that comes with a subscription to HP Instant Ink, which includes a six-month supply of free ink. There's also a variant called the HP OfficeJet 9016, which doesn't support borderless printing.

HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 - -
HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e 6 months -
HP OfficeJet Pro 9016 8 months  Doesn't support borderless printing
HP OfficeJet Pro 9018 8 months Costco exclusive

If you come across an HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 that's different from ours, please let us know.

Compared To Other Printers

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is a great small or home office printer, thanks in part to its high page yield and amazingly low cost-per-print. Also, it has a flatbed scanner and an automatic document feeder with duplex scanning capability. However, it's only decently fast at printing black-only text documents, and there are some faster options available. For other options, see our recommendations for the best all-in-one printers, the best office printers, and the best small business printers.

Brother MFC-J995DW

The Brother MFC-J995DW is overall better than the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015. The Brother can yield significantly more black and color pages, so its cost-per-print is much lower. Also, the Brother prints better quality photos. On the other hand, the HP is slightly better for office use due to its duplex scanning capability and faster printing speed. Also, the HP supports printing via Mopria Print Service.

HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e is the replacement for the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and has many of the same features. The 9015e comes with HP+, which includes a subscription to HP's Instant Ink service for six months. The 9015e also feels better-built and has a sturdier scanner lid, and it has a higher color page yield. On the other hand, the 9015 has a slightly higher black page yield and better photo printing quality because photos look grainy on the 9015e.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8025

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is overall a better printer than the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025. The 9015 has a better cartridge system, 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 9025

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9025 and the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 offer largely the same features and performance. However, the 9015 yields more black pages at a slightly lower cost-per-print. Also, it has better color accuracy and photo printing quality. On the other hand, the 9025 is a bit better for color prints since it yields more color pages at a lower cost-per-print, and it prints faster. Also, the 9025's input tray has double the capacity of the 9015's input tray.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is a much better all-in-one color inkjet printer than the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e. In particular, the 9015 is a much better small or home office printer, with a significantly better page yield and cost-per-print, faster overall print speed, and better-looking produced photos. It can also duplex scan and print directly from USB flash drives. On the other hand, the 8025e has significantly better color accuracy, though the average person might not notice a difference. It comes with six months of free ink through HP's Instant Ink subscription.

Brother MFC-J805DW INKvestment Tank

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and Brother MFC-J805DW INKvestment Tank are both all-in-one inkjet printers. The HP is a better small or home office printer, which supports duplex scanning, prints much faster, and produces much better-looking photos with better color accuracy. It also has an Ethernet port and can print directly from USB flash drives. On the other hand, the Brother is a more suitable family printer, as it feels better built, has a significantly better page yield and cost-per-print, and has a much better companion app.

Epson EcoTank ET-3760

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the Epson EcoTank ET-3760 are both great for office use, but the HP is slightly better because it supports duplex scanning and has a fax feature. It also feels better built and has a touchscreen display. However, the Epson uses a supertank cartridge system, which has much a higher page yield and costs significantly less per print.

HP OfficeJet Pro 7740

The HP OfficeJet Pro 7740 is slightly better overall than the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015. The 7740 yields more color pages at a lower cost-per-print, and it produces more accurate-looking colors. It also has a larger flatbed scanner. While the 9015 has a higher black page yield, it isn't much higher, and the difference hardly shows in its cost-per-print.

Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4830

The Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4830 and the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 are both great printers; however, the HP is slightly better. It has a much higher page yield and a lower cost-per-print, and it's a bit faster at printing documents. However, the Epson has better color accuracy, better build quality, and its companion app is slightly better.

HP ENVY Photo 7855

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the ENVY Photo 7855 are both inkjet printers that serve different purposes. The OfficeJet Pro is better for office use since it has a much higher page yield, a lower cost-per-print, and a duplex scanning feature. However, the ENVY is a better choice for printing photos since it has much better color accuracy and the photo printing quality is better.

Canon PIXMA TR8520

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the Canon PIXMA TR8520 are both very versatile printers. The HP is better for office use since it has a much higher page yield, a lower cost-per-print for black documents, and a much faster printing speed. It can also scan double-sided documents automatically. If you intend to print in color often, the Canon is better since it produces nicer-looking images with more accurate colors at a lower cost-per-print.

HP OfficeJet Pro 9025e

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the HP OfficeJet Pro 9025e are very similar inkjet printers, but the 9025e performs slightly better. The 9025e has a second input tray, so its paper capacity is double that of the 9015. Also, the 9025e has a slightly lower cost-per-print for color documents and photos since its color page yield is slightly higher. While the 9015 yields more black pages, it isn't enough to make a significant difference in the cost-per-print.

Epson EcoTank ET-4760

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is better for home use or printing photos, and the Epson EcoTank ET-4760 is a better choice for students or if you just need to print in black and white. The HP is better built, it has better color accuracy, and the photo printing quality is much better. However, the Epson uses a supertank ink system that has a high page yield, so printing a lot of pages is more cost-effective over time.

Epson EcoTank ET-2760

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is overall better than the Epson EcoTank ET-2760. The HP has an automatic document feeder, and it can fax and perform duplex scans. Also, it prints nicer-looking photos with more accurate-looking colors. However, the Epson has a much higher page yield at a significantly lower cost-per-print.

Canon PIXMA TR8620

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is overall better than the Canon PIXMA TR8620, but the Canon may be a better choice if you intend to print photos often. The HP has a much higher page yield and a lower cost-per-print for both black and color documents. It also prints much faster and holds more paper in its input tray. However, the Canon has better photo printing quality and it has a lower cost-per-print for photos. Also, unlike the HP, the Canon supports Bluetooth printing.

HP Color LaserJet Pro M255dw

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the HP Color LaserJet Pro M255dw are both office printers, but the M255dw is great only if you don't need a scanner. The 9015 has a full-feature scanner and a lower cost-per-print thanks to its cheaper cartridges. Since it's an inkjet printer, the 9015 prints nicer-looking photos. However, if you only need to print, the M255dw yields significantly more pages, prints faster, and produces more accurate-looking colors.

HP ENVY Pro 6455

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is an overall better all-in-one color inkjet printer than the HP ENVY Pro 6455. The OfficeJet's page yields and cost-per-print are significantly better, it prints faster, produces photos with much better quality, and can print on legal-size paper. Its ADF can duplex scan, and it has a great screen, faxing capabilities, an Ethernet port, and can print via USB flash drives. On the other hand, the ENVY has significantly better color accuracy, though it still isn't suitable for tasks that require accurate color reproduction.

Epson Expression Premium XP-7100

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is much better than the Epson Expression Premium XP-7100. The HP feels better built, yields significantly more pages at a much lower cost-per-print, and produces better-looking photos. However, the Epson iPrint app allows you to print Microsoft Office, TXT, and HTML files.

Epson EcoTank ET-2720

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the Epson EcoTank ET-2720 are both all-in-one color inkjet printers, but the HP is a better small or home office printer. The HP has an ADF with duplex scanning, faxing capabilities, and an Ethernet port. It also prints much faster, produces photos with much better quality and more accurate colors, and can also print directly from USB flash drives. On the other hand, the Epson uses a supertank ink system with significantly better cost-per-print and page yields.

Canon PIXMA G6020

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the Canon PIXMA G6020 are both inkjet printers for different uses. The HP is better for office use since it has a sheetfed scanner, supports automatic duplex scanning, and prints significantly faster. On the other hand, the Canon is better for family use since its supertank system yields many more pages at a much lower cost-per-print, and its mobile app can print a variety of file types.

Canon PIXMA G7020

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the Canon PIXMA G7020 are both inkjet printers for different uses. The HP is better for office use since it supports automatic duplex scanning and it prints significantly faster. On the other hand, the Canon is better for family use or for students since its supertank system yields many more pages at a much lower cost-per-print, and its mobile app can print a variety of file types.

Canon PIXMA TS9120

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is better overall than the Canon PIXMA TS9120. The HP has a much higher page yield, and its black-text cost-per-print is more affordable. It also has an automatic document feeder as well as an integrated fax feature, and its printing speed is much quicker for both black and color documents. However, the Canon has Bluetooth printing support and a slightly lower cost-per-print for color documents and photos.

Epson WorkForce WF-7720

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is overall better than the Epson WorkForce WF-7720. The HP has a higher page yield with black and color pages, and even though the cartridges are more expensive, the cost-per-print is still lower. It also has better color accuracy and better photo printing quality. On the other hand, the Epson feels better built, and the Epson iPrint app allows you to print most common file types.

Epson WorkForce WF-2830

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is much better than the Epson WorkForce WF-2830. The HP is better built, has a touchscreen display, and it has more connectivity options. It also has much higher color and black page yields, a much lower cost-per-print, and better photo quality. However, the Epson iPrint app allows you to print Microsoft Office, TXT, and HTML files.

HP LaserJet M209dwe

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the HP LaserJet M209dwe are office printers designed for different uses. The 9015 is a better choice if you want a color inkjet printer with a flatbed scanner and ADF with a duplex scanning feature, great photo printing quality, and a faster printing speed. On the other hand, since the M209dwe is a monochrome laser printer, it's a better choice if you only need to print black documents since it has a much higher page yield. However, its black toner cartridge is more expensive than the 9015's ink cartridge, so their costs-per-print are nearly identical.

HP DeskJet 2755e

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the HP DeskJet 2755e are for different uses. The 2755e is a budget family printer for occasional printing and scanning, so it lacks many office-oriented features the 9015 has. The 9015 has an automatic document feeder and a duplex scanning feature, a much faster printing speed, and an Ethernet port. The 9015 has a much higher page yield since it's used for offices that print a lot of documents frequently; this results in a much lower cost-per-print. Also, it supports duplex printing, so you don't need to flip over each page yourself like on the 2755e.

Canon imageCLASS MF644Cdw

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the Canon imageCLASS MF644Cdw are two different types of printers. The HP is an inkjet printer with much better photo printing quality, a much lower cost-per-print, and a higher scan resolution. However, the Canon is a laser printer with a much higher page yield, a faster printing speed, and a better mobile app.
