The HP OfficeJet Pro 9025 is a great printer for nearly all uses, whether it's for a professional office setting or a small dorm room. It has a robust build and it's well-designed to give you easy access to the ink cartridges, making the process quick and frustration-free. Its printing color accuracy may not be suitable for professionals who work in fields such as print media, but it should be fine if you're just printing casually. It has a low cost-per-print, especially for black-only documents, and it prints quickly, which is great when you're in a hurry. Overall, this printer has a good balance of performance and features that most people should be satisfied with.

Our Verdict

8.3 Mixed Usage

The OfficeJet Pro 9025 is a great printer for most uses. It's well-suited as a family printer, as it has a decent photo printing quality, and it has outstanding scanning features, including an automatic document feeder and two-sided scanning. Its excellent connectivity options are great for small offices, not to mention that it can print a large number of documents at a low cost. It has a fast printing speed and printed photos look decent, but its sub-par color accuracy makes it difficult to recommend for professionals who need accurate color reproduction.

8.2 Family Printer

The OfficeJet Pro 9025 is a great family printer. The quality of printed photos is decent, with a good amount of fine details and vibrancy in the colors, but it's not the most color-accurate. It can print a lot of pages at a low cost, whether it's in black only or color, and the scanner has outstanding features, including an automatic feeder, two-sided scanning, and a lid that can extend to accommodate thicker documents such as books. HP's mobile app is decent as well, however, it can't print Microsoft Office files directly from the app.

8.3 Home Office / Small Office

The OfficeJet Pro 9025 is a great printer for home or small offices. It allows you to print a lot of pages before needing to change the ink cartridges, and it prints at a quick pace for black or color documents. It's well-built, has outstanding scanning features, and its excellent wireless connectivity options let you place the printer anywhere when multiple users are sharing the same printer.

8.2 Student

The OfficeJet Pro 9025 is a great printer for students. It prints black and color documents very quickly, which is great for those times when you need to turn in a paper before the deadline. You can connect to the printer through Wi-Fi or print directly from a portable USB drive. The scanner's lid has hinges that can extend to accommodate thick books, and it has an automatic document feeder as well as a duplex scanning feature, so you don't have to scan two-sided documents manually, which can be time-consuming.

8.4 Black & White

The OfficeJet Pro 9025 is an impressive printer for printing black and white documents. It allows you to print a large number at a low cost, and while the first page can take a bit longer, subsequent pages come out much faster, which is great for large printing jobs. Its ink cartridges can yield a lot of pages before needing replacement and the printer also accepts high-yield cartridges. Its two front paper trays can hold a lot of paper, and its automatic document feeder makes it easy to scan multiple pages.

Build & Design Quality

The OfficeJet Pro 9025 has an excellent design and build quality. Its full plastic construction feels sturdy and the power cord is removable, making it easy to replace should it get damaged. The ink cartridges are easily accessible from the front panel, and you only have to lift the top scanner lid and the rear side panel to remove any potential jammed paper. The front input trays have sliders that adjust to the paper's size, and you can have photo paper and regular paper in different trays on the front.

Unfortunately, while it's great that the hinges on the scanner's lid can extend to accommodate thicker documents like books, they feel quite fragile and the lid can detach from the hinges if overextended, exposing the wires. Once the lid is off, it's difficult to re-align the hinges, which is necessary for closing the scanner lid. Also, opening and closing the front paper tray can be rather challenging.

The OfficeJet Pro 9025 is fairly bulky. It's not much larger than the OfficeJet Pro 9015, but it's taller and heavier.

The OfficeJet Pro 9025 has an excellent display console. It's very responsive, it provides audible feedback, and it can tilt for better visibility. There's a 'Home' and 'Back' button at the bottom of the screen (not shown), and the settings are easy to navigate.

Note that the printer is advertised as having a 6.6cm display screen, however, this is an edge to edge measurement. We measure the screen diagonally.

The 9025 has an excellent cartridge system, allowing you to print a large number of pages before the cartridges run dry. There are third-party ink cartridges available; however, we haven't received them yet. We'll provide an update once we've received and tested them.

The 9025 has exceptional scanning features. It can scan documents up to the standard legal paper size and the scanner lid can extend slightly to accommodate thicker documents. It has an automatic document feeder that can perform duplex scanning; however, the scanning resolution drops to 300 DPI when using the feeder.

The cost-per-print of the 9025 is outstanding. Printing in black only is very affordable, even in large numbers, but the cost of printing color documents rises at a much faster rate the more you print. If you tend to print a lot, the printer accepts high-yield cartridges, and you can also subscribe to HP's ink subscription, which is a service provided by HP to automatically ship you new cartridges when ink levels are low.

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 OfficeJet Pro 9025 has a great printing speed. It takes a bit longer to print out the first page of a black text document; however, subsequent pages are much faster. Printing color documents is slightly slower, and even longer for photo printing, although still faster than the OfficeJet Pro 9015.

The printing color accuracy of the 9025 is sub-par. It shouldn't be a problem if you're just printing casually, but it's not recommended for those who need accurate color reproduction, such as print media.

The 9025 has a decent photo printing quality. Colors look decently vibrant and there's a good amount of fine details. However, there's a bit of banding in certain shades of gray and darker areas are less defined.

These results are based on the actual physical photo, not the scanned image provided for reference above, which may not be representative of the printer's photo print quality.

The 9025 has excellent connectivity options. It can be connected directly to a computer via a USB input on the back of the printer, and it has a secondary USB port on the front that supports external drives. You can also print wirelessly using AirPrint on iOS devices and Mopria on Android. The only downside is the lack of Bluetooth support.

The HP Smart mobile printing app is decent. It lets you manage your HP ink subscription if you're subscribed to it, and you can scan documents directly from the app at a maximum resolution of 300 dpi. You can print directly from the app and send picture documents as well.
