Like the HP 9025, the 9015 comes with a 35-sheet auto-duplexing automatic document feeder (ADF) for copying, scanning, and faxing two-sided multipage originals without user intervention. The Epson WF-4720 also comes with a 35-page auto-duplexing ADF, whereas the Brother MFC-J995DW and the Canon TR8520 have ADFs that hold only 20 sheets and neither can scan or copy two-sided pages without your having to flip the originals manually.
The 9015’s standard connectivity interfaces are Ethernet, Wi-Fi, connecting to a single PC via USB 2.0, and Wi-Fi Direct, a peer-to-peer network protocol for connecting your mobile devices to the printer without either it or them being part of a network. Other mobile connectivity consists of Apple AirPrint, Mopria, and HP Smart App. That last one, Smart App, provides drivers and a standard interface for connecting and managing HP printers across several various platforms, including Android, Windows, macOS, and iOS.
Security on the OfficeJet Pro 9015 includes a built-in firewall for controlling unwanted traffic, secure Wi-Fi Direct, and secure boot with self-healing Wi-Fi. You can also lock and password-protect the control panel and the Embedded Web Server. And, as do most other business printers, the 9015 allows you to encrypt Embedded Web Server data with secure socket layer (SSL) certificates
HP rates the 9015 at 22 pages per minute (ppm), which is the same as the OfficeJet Pro Premier and 2ppm slower than the 9025. I timed it over an Ethernet connection from our standard Intel Core i5-equipped testbed PC running Windows 10 Professional. During the first phase of our benchmarking tests, the 9015 printed our 12-page Microsoft Word text document at a speed of 22ppm, matching HP’s rating and falling slightly behind the 9025 by 2.9ppm. The 9015’s score beat the Epson WF-4720 by 2ppm, outpaced the Brother MFC-J995DW by 11.5ppm, and came in faster than the Canon TR8520 by 9.2ppm.
