The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e is a color inkjet printer designed for small offices. It's an upgraded version of the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 that comes with HP+, so it includes a six-month subscription to HP's Instant Ink subscription, and ships ink to your door when the printer detects it's running low. It has a great touchscreen display with a menu that makes it easy to navigate through print and scan tasks, with a duplex-scanning ADF making it easy to digitize multi-page, double-sided documents. There's also built-in fax, which is helpful for workplaces like clinics. It has excellent page yields at an outstanding cost-per-print and prints very quickly overall. The wireless and wired connectivity options are superb, and you can also print directly from USB flash drives.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 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 needing to worry about your budget. Photos look great, with okay color accuracy, and are fine for everyday use. You can also use its outstanding array of scanning features to digitize photos and documents.
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.
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.
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.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e is a decent model for printing photos. Photos looks great, but there's lots of grain that causes some small details to be lost in the shadows. Colors are vibrant and reasonably accurate, which is fine for casual prints but aren't good enough for photo printing professionals. The cost-per-print for photos is amazingly low, meaning you won't run up your budget.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e feels very well-built, with a sturdy plastic body. The ink cartridges are held in a movable cartridge bay that feels a bit sluggish to move, but the lid to the bay feels well-made. You can also easily access paper jams via the cartridge bay. The power cord is detachable, making it easy to replace in case it gets damaged.
Update 01/26/2022: We reshot our 'In Use Picture' since the initial one didn't have the input tray fully extended.
You need to perform typical inkjet maintenance tasks on the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e. We didn't experience any printhead clogging during our tests, even after letting it sit idle for more than six months. If you do experience any issues, you can perform printhead cleaning, printhead alignment, and smear cleaning to help solve the issue. The printer needs to be on to access and replace the cartridges, although they're easy to get to using the front panel. 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 a great display screen. It has a responsive touch display and an easy-to-navigate menu with audible feedback. There are also virtual navigation buttons visible on the bottom when the screen is on. You can tilt the screen to make it easier to see when standing.
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, should you want to save some money in the long run.
Note: When enrolled in HP+, this printer advises you to use original HP cartridges only. While it accepts third-party remanufactured HP cartridges, using them may void the warranty.
The HP 9015e has outstanding scanning features. There's a flatbed scanner you can use to digitize fragile items like old photos, while you can use the automatic document feeder to quickly and easily process many double-sided, multi-page sheets. You can also save scanned documents as searchable PDF files, so you can easily use your computer to search for text that would take a long time to do manually. Unfortunately, the flatbed's lid hinges don't extend, so you can't properly scan thicker items like textbooks.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e's flatbed scanner can capture even the smallest details in photos or documents at its maximum scan resolution. On the other hand, its 24-bit color depth can translate colors into all the ones visible on most displays. However, you might notice a bit of banding on digitally scanned photos that appear perfectly smooth on the original document.
The HP 9015e's cost-per-print is remarkably low. With its high page yield, you won't have to replace the cartridges often, so the overall 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. Keep in mind that even if you only print in black, most inkjet printers continue using the color cartridge for servicing tasks, so you may still need to replace it eventually.
The HP 9015e's 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.
Although you can still print in black and white, you can't print any color documents at all if some color cartridges are empty. For example, if you run out of magenta but are printing a color document that requires only cyan and yellow, you can't print unless you replace the magenta cartridge.
Update 01/12/2022: We reevaluated the printed images and increased the score from a 7.5 to an 8.0. This makes it more consistent with the scores of similar printers.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e prints very good-looking photos, which is very similar to the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015. The colors look vibrant, but the images look grainy, causing details to be lost in the shadows. These results are based on the actual physical photo, not the scanned image provided for reference above, which may not represent the printer's photo print quality.
The HP 9015e's 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.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e 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 HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e supports printing directly from USB flash drives. There's a USB port located on the left side of the printer near the front.
The HP OfficeJet 9015e is compatible with the superb HP Smart app. You can use it to print photos and documents, scan the flatbed remotely or scan using your phone camera, send mobile faxes, and manage your HP Instant Ink subscription. You can directly print some commonly used file types only on iOS, though.
Although the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e 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. Fortunately, on macOS, you can print and scan using AirPrint without installing any apps or drivers.
We tested the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e in white, which is the replacement for the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015. It includes a subscription to HP+, which includes a two-year warranty and a six-month trial to the Instant Ink subscription services. There's a Costco exclusive variant called the HP OfficeJet Pro 9018e, or the HP 9018e, that's identical. You can see our unit's label here.

It also prints much more accurate colors.
The Brother MFC-J995DW is better than the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e for most uses. The Brother has a significantly higher page yield, so you won't have to replace the cartridges as often as the HP, and because of this, the cost of printing remains low over time. However, the HP has better color accuracy and is better for home offices because its sheetfed scanner supports duplex scanning, which the Brother doesn't.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e is a better printer for small or home offices, black and white printing, and casual photos, whereas the Epson EcoTank ET-2760 is better for students.

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e and the HP ENVY 6455e are inkjet printers designed for different uses. The 9015e is designed for office use since it has an automatic document feeder with a duplex scanning feature, a much faster printing speed, a fax feature, and an Ethernet port. On the other hand, the 6455e is for home use, so it lacks the features the 9015e has. It has a better color accuracy, decent photo printing quality, and cartridges cost cheaper, but its very low page yield results in a high cost-per-print.
The Canon PIXMA TR8520 and the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e are all-in-one color inkjet printers, but the Canon is better for printing photos, while the HP is better for small or home offices. The Canon produces superior-looking photos with vibrant colors, clear details, and no banding, and it can print via Bluetooth and SD cards.

The 9015e is overall a better choice thanks to its color printing capability, ADF, duplex scanning feature, and higher flatbed scanner resolution. It also prints much faster than the M234sdwe and holds more paper in its input tray. However, the M234sdwe yields more black pages and has a slightly lower cost-per-print, so it may be a better choice if you only need to print monochrome documents and don't want to replace the cartridge as often.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e and the HP DeskJet 2742e are inkjet printers designed for different uses. However, the OfficeJet performs much better thanks to the much lower cost-per-print, higher page yield, and quicker printing time.
