The OfficeJet Pro 9015 is a versatile printer for most uses. Although fairly compact, it's jam-packed with useful features to help you get the most out of your printing experience. Its cost-per-page ratio for both black and color printing is great and the cartridges will yield a lot of pages before you need to replace them. This printer has an integrated flatbed and sheetfed scanner, making it easy to scan a variety of items such as fragile photographs to tax forms. On the downside, the color accuracy isn't the best but it should be more than suitable for non-professional use.

Our Verdict

8.5 Family

Excellnt as a family printer. The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 has great photo printing quality, which is great when you want to save memories for your scrapbook. Its scanner is impressive; its flatbed scanner is great for scanning old documents while the sheetfed is perfect for processing tax documents. This printer also has a great black and color ink cartridge yield, so you'll be able to print out forms and pictures without having to worry about running out of ink so quickly.

Pros
  • Great cost-to-print ratio for black and colored ink.
  • Quick print time for colored documents and photos.
  • Outstanding flatbed and sheetfed scanner with automatic document feeding.
Cons
  • Color accuracy just okay.
8.1 Small/Home Office

Great for the home office or a small office. The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 can yield a lot of black-text pages before you'll need to replace the cartridge. Its cost-to-print for black ink is very affordable, too. If you like to add a splash of color to your quarterly reports, the color cartridges will give you a good cost-to-print ratio. This printer also has several features handy for any office such as an automatic duplex feeder, duplex scanning, and an integrated fax to help streamline your work process.

Pros
  • Great cost-to-print ratio for black and colored ink.
  • Quick print time for colored documents and photos.
  • Outstanding flatbed and sheetfed scanner with automatic document feeding.
Cons
  • Color accuracy just okay.
8.2 Student

Great for student use. The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is a fairly compact printer that should easily fit on top of most desks. The black and color ink cartridges both have great yields too, meaning you won't have to change them too often. While the first page of a black text document can take some time to fully print, the overall print speed is decent. You'll also be able to hook up your printer to your router via Wi-Fi or directly to your device using Wi-Fi Direct. The integrated scanner also makes it easy to scan and copy assignments or article pages.

Pros
  • Great cost-to-print ratio for black and colored ink.
  • Quick print time for colored documents and photos.
  • Outstanding flatbed and sheetfed scanner with automatic document feeding.
Cons
  • Color accuracy just okay.
8.2 Black & White

Great for black and white printing. Although the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is fairly ordinary in its print speed for black text documents, its cost-to-print ratio for black ink is impressive, making this printer a cost-effective and affordable option for those who print off a lot of black and white documents. The black-ink page yield is also great too, so you shouldn't have to change your cartridge as often. There are even higher yield cartridges available if you need even more ink.

Pros
  • Great cost-to-print ratio for black and colored ink.
  • Quick print time for colored documents and photos.
  • Outstanding flatbed and sheetfed scanner with automatic document feeding.
Cons
  • Color accuracy just okay.
7.7 Casual Photo

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is a good printer for printing photos. It has great photo printing quality, but its color accuracy is just okay. Luckily, it has a great color page yield, so printing photos over time is cost-effective as the cost-per-print is low.

Pros
  • Great cost-to-print ratio for black and colored ink.
  • Quick print time for colored documents and photos.
  • Outstanding flatbed and sheetfed scanner with automatic document feeding.
Cons
  • Color accuracy just okay.

Build & Design Quality

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 has a solid gray and white plastic body that feels sturdy. Just like the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025, you can slightly lift the scanner lid, which is good if you want to scan larger objects. However, if you overextend the lid, it'll come off the hinges and expose 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, while paper jams are reachable by lifting the top of the scanner lid.

The HP OfficeJet 9015 is slightly taller and weighs slightly more than the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025. While it's bulkier than most compact printers, it should still be suitable for small spaces like dorm tables or home offices.

Much like other HP printers, the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 has an excellent color touchscreen. It can be vertically tilted so you'll be able to see it from most angles. Its touch controls are also responsive, easy to use, and they provide audible feedback.

Note that the manufacturer's specs indicate a 6.6cm display screen but this was measured edge to edge. We measure the screen diagonally.

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 has an excellent cartridge system. You'll be able to get a great number of pages from both the black and colored ink cartridges before you need to replace them. If you still need more ink, you can get a high yield cartridge, which will further extend your page yield. Better still, if you have an HP ink subscription, running out of ink and then forgetting to buy replacement cartridges won't happen: as soon as your printer warns you that you're running low on ink, it'll order you that particular low-ink cartridge for you. At the time of writing, we don't currently have third-party ink to test.

The HP Pro 9015 has outstanding scanning features. It's got a flatbed scanner suitable for fragile items like old photographs or bigger objects like books. The sheetfed scanner, on the other hand, is great for scanning paper documents such as forms. The Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) can also process multiple pages in a row and the duplex scanning is a nice touch too. While the flatbed isn't large enough to scan legal documents or tabloid pages, it'll easily fit typical letter formats.

The OfficeJet Pro 9015's cost per print is outstanding. It's incredibly affordable to print black text documents, making this printer a great choice when you've got a lot of essays or forms to print out. Color and photo prints are also cost-effective. Both black and colored ink cartridges are reasonably priced compared to the price of the printer. However, as you continue to print, you'll end up paying more in the long term. 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 cartridge for servicing tasks, so you'll likely still need to replace it eventually.

The 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've got a lot of pages to print, the input tray holds a lot of sheets, so you shouldn't have to refill it too often.

Compared to other printers

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is a very well-balanced printer suitable for most home-based users. Compared to other printers in the OfficeJet lineup, it has a significantly better cost-to-print ratio and it's quicker to print black text and colored documents.

Also see our recommendations for the best all-in-one printers, the best home printers, and the best photo printers

The OfficeJet Pro is much better built, it has a four-cartridge system that has a much higher page yield, and the cost-per-print is also much lower.

However, the ENVY is a better choice for printing photos since it has much better color accuracy and the photo printing quality is better.

Brother MFC-J995DW

For most uses, the Brother MFC-J995DW is 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. The OfficeJet Pro 9015 is slightly better for office use due to its duplex scanning capability and faster printing speed.

Epson EcoTank ET-3760

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is a better printer overall than the Epson EcoTank ET-3760. The HP is better built, it has a fax feature, it supports duplex scanning, and the photo printing quality is much better too. However, the Epson has a supertank cartridge system, so it has a much higher page yield and it will cost you less over time to buy new cartridges.

Epson EcoTank ET-2760

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is a better printer for most uses than the Epson EcoTank ET-2760. The HP is better built, has a fax machine, it scans double-sided, the color accuracy is better, and it prints photos in more detail. However, the Epson has a much higher page yield with its supertank ink system and the replacements cost a lot less.

HP Color LaserJet Pro M255dw

For most uses, the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is much better than the HP Color LaserJet Pro M255dw. The 9015 has a better display screen, a full-feature scanner, and it's more cost-effective in the long run due to the low cost of the ink cartridges. The 9015 prints higher quality photos, but the M255dw has better color accuracy and it yields more black and color pages before needing toner replacement. 

Epson Expression Premium XP-7100

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is much better than the Epson Expression Premium XP-7100. The HP's better built, the four-cartridge system has a much higher page yield, resulting in a much lower cost-per-print, and it has a better photo printing quality. However, the Epson iPrint app allows you to print Microsoft Office and HTML files.

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 cost-effective over time.

Canon PIXMA G7020

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is a better printer for black and white printing as well as small/home offices than the Canon PIXMA G7020. The HP can duplex scan, and it's pretty quick at printing all documents too. It also has a better display screen, and it has external storage support too, which is nice. The Canon, in comparison, uses a supertank system, so it's able to yield more pages before its cartridge needs to be refilled, and it has a lower cost-per-print, which some users may prefer. Its companion app is better too.

Epson WorkForce WF-7720

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is better overall 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. The Epson is better built, has a bigger screen, and the Epson iPrint app allows you to print most common file types.

Canon PIXMA G6020

For most uses, the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is much better than the Canon PIXMA G6020. The HP has a better display screen, a full-feature scanner, and more connectivity options. It also prints significantly faster and it prints higher quality photos with better color accuracy. However, the Canon's supertank ink system yields a lot more pages and is more cost-effective over time.

Canon imageCLASS MF644Cdw

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the Canon imageCLASS MF644Cdw are two different printers. The HP is an inkjet printer with much better photo printing quality, the cost-per-print over time is much better, and it scans in higher quality. However, the Canon is a laser printer with a high page yield, so you won't have to worry about buying a new cartridge for a while, but the color cartridges are quite expensive.

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 yield, the cost-per-print is much lower, and the photo printing quality is also better.
