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

8.2 Mixed Usage

Great for mixed use. The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is well-suited for most home uses. It's fairly compact, which is great for a home office or students with small desks while its great cost-to-print ratio for black and color ink will please those looking to get the most from their printers. The high page yield for black and colored ink also means that you won't have to change the ink cartridges as often either. You'll be able to print great quality photos too. With its integrated scanner, you can process a variety of documents such as tax forms to old photographs. Printing off black text documents is decently quick too.

8.4 Family Printer

Impressive 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.

8.1 Home Office / Small 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.

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.

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.

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.

This printer 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 a great 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 9015 has outstanding scanning features. It's got a scan flatbed suitable for fragile items like old photographs or bigger objects like books. The scan sheetfed, 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.

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.

The 9015's color accuracy is mediocre. While it shouldn't be a problem for most casual users, those who might need more accurate colors for their work might not find this printer suitable for their needs.

This printer has great photo printing quality. When printed on HP Advanced Photo Paper, colors are vibrant and there's no banding on the grayscale palette. Details show up nicely, too, but shadow areas are less defined.

Although it doesn't offer a Bluetooth connection, you'll be able to wirelessly connect to your devices using Wi-Fi Direct or your Wi-Fi network via your router. You can also connect from your mobile devices using Apple AirPrint or, for Android users, Mopria Print Service. There's also an ethernet port and you can plug this printer directly into your computer's USB port. This printer has a USB input, which is nice if you want to physically transfer files.

Just like the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025, this printer uses the HP Smart app. Available on both Android and iOS, you'll be able to print and scan both photos and PDF files from your phone. You'll also be able to scan with your phone's camera and send it to the printer as well as manage your ink subscription.

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, the 9015 has a significantly better cost-to-print ratio and it's quicker to print black text and colored documents. It also has outstanding scanner features such as an automatic document feeder, which is ideal for anyone who has to process a lot of physical items, and an ink subscription service if you tend to forget to buy new cartridges. Although it has mediocre color accuracy and it doesn't offer additional external storage support like memory card inputs, this printer is still a good choice for most uses.
