Updated Dec 14, 2022 at 05:01 pm
HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e Picture

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e is a color inkjet printer designed for small or home offices. It's identical to the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 in features and performance; however, it comes with six months of ink through HP+, HP's ink delivery subscription service. It's part of the HP OfficeJet 9010e series of all-in-ones, which includes many regional and retailer-specific variants. This model uses four ink cartridges (CMYK) and is compatible with HP's 962 and 962XL cartridges. Its connectivity options include USB, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet, and it can print directly off a USB flash drive. It has an ADF-equipped scanner with automatic dual-pass duplex scanning capability and software-based optical character recognition.

Our Verdict

N/A Family

The HP 9015e is a very good printer for families. The cost-per-print for black and color documents is remarkably cheap, so you can print many essays and reports without worrying about your budget. Photos look great and reasonably color-accurate and are fine for everyday use. The scanner has a high scan resolution; however, it doesn't pick up some fine details, so it isn't the best for digitizing photos.

Pros
  • High page yield, low cost-per-print.
  • Photos look detailed.
  • Wide connectivity options.
  • Reasonably color-accurate.
  • Produces high-quality black and color documents.
Cons
  • Scanner doesn't pick up fine details.
  • Requires occasional maintenance tasks to prevent clogging.
N/A Small/Home Office

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e is great for small or home office use. Its black and color page yields are great, so your print jobs won't often be interrupted by a low ink warning. You only need to worry about typical inkjet maintenance routines like printhead cleaning, and it's easy to access potential paper jams. When printing, it gets the first page out decently quickly and prints black text documents at a decent speed. Its ADF can scan double-sided documents in a single pass, making it easy to turn physical copies into digital, searchable PDFs.

Pros
  • High page yield, low cost-per-print.
  • Automatic document feeder with duplex scanning.
  • Great overall printing speed.
  • Produces high-quality black and color documents.
Cons
  • Scanner doesn't pick up fine details.
  • Requires occasional maintenance tasks to prevent clogging.
N/A Student

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e is an excellent printer for students. It doesn't support Bluetooth, but you can print using Wi-Fi Direct or directly from USB flash drives. The cost-per-print is remarkably low, so you don't have to worry about frequent, expensive cartridge replacements. It gets the first page out decently quickly, so you can easily get last-minute essays out the door. You can use the flatbed or ADF to turn handwritten notes into searchable PDFs.

Pros
  • High page yield, low cost-per-print.
  • Wide connectivity options.
  • Great overall printing speed.
  • Produces high-quality black and color documents.
Cons
  • Scanner doesn't pick up fine details.
  • Requires occasional maintenance tasks to prevent clogging.
N/A Black & White

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e is very good for black & white printing. The black page yield is very good, and the cost-per-print is outstandingly low, so you don't have to worry about having to refill the cartridges often. You only need to worry about typical inkjet maintenance routines like printhead cleaning and alignment, and the printer is compatible with high-yield cartridges. It prints at a decent speed and gets the first page out quickly, and paper jams are easy to access.

Pros
  • High page yield, low cost-per-print.
  • Great overall printing speed.
  • Produces high-quality black and color documents.
Cons
  • Scanner doesn't pick up fine details.
  • Requires occasional maintenance tasks to prevent clogging.
N/A Photo

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e is a decent model for printing photos. It produces good quality photos and prints quickly; however, it doesn't have a particularly wide color range, and there's lots of grain in the pictures, causing the loss of some fine details. Its color accuracy is okay; fine for casual prints but not good enough for professional photo printing. Its ink cartridges yield a large number of prints, and they aren't overly expensive, so your maintenance costs won't rise too much, even if you print a lot.

Pros
  • High page yield, low cost-per-print.
  • Photos look detailed.
  • Prints photos very quickly.
  • Reasonably color-accurate.
Cons
  • Photos look grainy.
  • Doesn't support 2" x 3" photo format.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e in white. It's the same printer as the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015, but six months of ink through HP+, HP's ink subscription service. It's part of HP's OfficeJet 9010e series of all-in-one printers, which includes many variants. All the variants have identical features and performance; the model number simply changes depending on the region and retailer.

Compared To Other Printers

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e is a great printer for home offices. It's similar to the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the HP OfficeJet Pro 9025, with a high page yield and fast printing speeds. However, cheaper options are available with an even higher page yield, like the Brother MFC-J4335DW.

For more options, check out our recommendations for the best home printers, the best office printers, and the best inkjet printers.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8025e [8022e, 8025, 8028, 8028e, 8035e]

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. On the other hand, the 8025e produces higher quality black and color documents, and its scanner picks up finer details.

HP ENVY Inspire 7955e

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e is much better than the HP ENVY Inspire 7955e. The OfficeJet 9015e yields significantly more pages at a much cheaper cost-per-print, prints much faster, and prints better-looking photos. Also, it has an Ethernet port and can print directly from USB flash drives. Although both printers have an ADF, the 9015e processes sheets faster and supports automatic dual-pass duplex scanning.

HP OfficeJet Pro 9025e

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e and the HP OfficeJet Pro 9025e are very similar inkjet printers. They have nearly identical page yields and cost-per-prints, as well as the same connectivity options and scanner features. However, the 9025e holds double the number of paper thanks to its second input tray. It also takes less time to warm up and produces higher-quality black and color documents. Both models are HP+ printers and come with six months of free ink through the HP Instant Ink service.

HP OfficeJet Pro 7740

The HP OfficeJet Pro 7740 and the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e are both all-in-one color inkjet printers meant for small or home offices, but the 7740 has a larger flatbed scanner and can print on wide, tabloid-format paper. Also, the 7740 produces higher-quality documents, and its ADF can duplex scan in one pass, whereas the 9015e needs two passes. However, the 9015e has much faster print speeds as well as a slightly better color page yield and cost-per-print.

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e feels very well-built, with a sturdy plastic body. The ink cartridges are in a movable cartridge bay that feels a bit sluggish to move, but the lid to the bay feels well-made. The power cord is detachable, making it easy to replace in case it gets damaged.

This printer requires a fair amount of maintenance, as, like most inkjet printers, the printheads can clog if left unused for an extended period. If you experience clogging, there are a few maintenance functions built-in to help resolve the issue, like printhead cleaning, printhead alignment, and smear cleaning. The ink cartridges yield a large number of prints, so you won't need to replace them often. When you do, you can easily access the cartridges through the front panel, though the printer needs to be on for the process. You can also access the sheet rollers via the front panel and move the cartridge carriage to the side to get to paper jams, but we don't expect jams to be a frequent issue.

The HP 9015e has an excellent cartridge system. Whether you're printing in black and white or color, it prints a great number of pages before running out of ink. It's compatible with HP 962XL high-yield cartridges for better page yields, as well as third-party cartridges. For a similarly-priced printer that yield even more pages, check out the Brother MFC-J4535DW.

The HP 9018e has outstanding scanning features. The automatic document feeder automatically processes double-sided sheets, albeit only in two passes, meaning you need to flip the pages manually when prompted. Its OCR (optical character recognition) feature lets you save scanned documents as PDF files, so you can easily search for keywords. It makes mistakes occasionally, but mostly when there are special characters in the text. Unfortunately, the flatbed's lid hinges don't extend, making it hard to close the lid over thicker items like textbooks.

The cost-per-print is remarkably low. With its high page yield, you won't have to replace the cartridges often, so the cost of printing remains low over time. This printer comes with a six-month subscription to HP's Instant Ink service, which automatically mails new cartridges to your door whenever the printer begins to run out of ink.

The printing speed is great. It prints color pages very quickly, so it can easily get color-coded graphs and reports out in no time. It also takes a very short time to print photos. It has a single input tray that holds 250 pages, but its output tray can only hold 60 sheets at a time, so you'll need to clear it if you have a very large print job. Alternatively, there's the HP OfficeJet Pro 9025e, which has a secondary tray that holds 250 more sheets, while its output tray holds up to 100 sheets.

Color Gamut

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9018e has a mediocre color gamut. Bright greens look darker than they ought to, while blacks have a reddish tint. Additionally, very light color tints come out looking almost completely white. There's a lot of grain in gradients between colors that can be noticeable in some photos.

The color accuracy is alright. It's fine for adding a splash of color to work or school documents, but it may not be good enough for professional-grade tasks that require perfect color accuracy. Like most printers, it struggles most with reproducing blues.

This printer is excellent when it comes to reproducing small details. You can easily see the Tokyo Tower's general structure and some of the individual metal bars at the top. The loss of finer details is mainly due to the use of halftones (dots).

Although this printer is fully compatible with all operating systems, you need to install software on some OSes to get all the functionality out of the printer. On Windows, the HP Smart app isn't necessary, although you can easily access some functions with the app installed. On Chrome OS, you'd need to add the printer manually using its IP address if you weren't using the HP Smart app, and even then, you'd only be able to print. Using the HP Smart app allows you to easily set up the printer and use its features. On macOS, you can print and scan using AirPrint without installing any apps or drivers.
