Test report on the HP Officejet Pro 9010

To check the goodness of the multifunction device in the test, we look at:

  • Print quality,
  • usability,
  • connections,
  • equipment,
  • extra features and
  • the scope of delivery

in more detail. Is it worth buying the model? We give you an overview.

Multifunction printer with high print quality

If you buy this model, you will get a printer with a high print resolution in black and white with 1,200 × 1,200 dpi and up to 4,800 × 1,200 dpi in colour. It uses the modern printing technology HP Thermal Inkjet. In the test, the inkjet printer prints professional graphics with vivid colours. This makes the device ideal for office applications and printing high-quality presentations. Business documents shine in the test thanks to the deep black text and precise colour application.

At the same time, the HP Officejet Pro 9010 is incredibly fast. The test shows: It prints the first page in colour after a maximum of ten seconds. It can print 18 colour pages in one minute. Black and white is even faster. With a high speed of 22 sheets per minute, the HP Officejet Pro 9010 is one of the faster models on the market.

If you buy the printer, it comes with four individual colour cartridges in cyan, black, magenta and yellow. They have a high range. If necessary, you can replace them individually. This saves you the high cost of buying additional ink cartridge sets. You can reduce paper consumption with the practical duplex printing function, which allows you to use the front and back of the sheet efficiently.

You make various settings for the quality of the output. In addition to the normal print quality, the "Optimal" option gives you very high-quality, pin-sharp printouts. This quality level is suitable for graphics and images. The test showed that for text documents the draft mode, which saves precious ink, is sometimes sufficient.

Shortcuts for printing save time. If you buy this device, the variety of printing options is great. There are different settings for the colour application, the layout for multi-page printing and the output of booklets.

Convincing in the test: easy operation and modern connections

With a diagonal size of 6.86 centimetres (2.7 inches), the colour graphics display is somewhat smaller than on comparable models. In the test, it was sufficient to operate the printer comprehensively. You control the copy, print, scan and fax options via the display. The intuitive menu navigation is clear. You can navigate quickly through the menu by tapping and swiping.

In terms of connectivity, the HP Officejet Pro 9010 multifunction printer comes with all the important interfaces. There are wired and wireless options such as Ethernet, USB and WLAN. In addition, you use the device via mobile apps such as:

  • Apple AirPrint™
  • Wi-Fi® Direct Printing
  • Mobile Apps
  • Mopria™ Certified
  • HP Smart

The HP printer does not have Bluetooth and NFC connectivity. Print from anywhere via cloud-based printing platforms, greatly simplifying office workflows.

 

Good equipment and many extra features when you buy the HP Officejet Pro 9010

In the test, the HP Officejet Pro 9010 multifunction printer not only impressed with its fast printouts and easy operation. It also offers generous equipment and four functions in one: printing, scanning, faxing and copying. You print in colour and black and white.

The paper supply cassette offers a maximum capacity of 250 sheets. This is sufficient for a multifunction printer for small businesses and workgroups with a maximum monthly print volume of 1,500 pages. The output capacity is 60 pages.

If you buy this printer, you will produce printouts with a maximum size of DIN A4. In addition, you can print media in A5, A6, B5, cards, 13 × 18 and 10 × 15 cm photos and envelopes. The use of inkjet photo papers offered the highest quality in the test. They allow borderless printouts. The range of printable documents covered the needs of normal offices, leaving almost nothing to be desired.

One of the most important features of the multifunction printer is automatic double-sided printing and scanning. This is a function that not every modern device has. In office environments, this saves a lot of time when digitising and creating print output.

You can scan up to four images per minute via duplex printing. The resolution of 200 dpi in black and white or colour is a little low for photos. This is less noticeable for text documents. There is still room for improvement in scanning speed. Comparable models from other manufacturers manage up to 20 pages per minute.

Smart Tasks also focus on speed. Short commands allow you to scan to email and the cloud, Google Drive or Dropbox. The function allows you to create searchable, editable documents via printer or smartphone.

When it comes to copying, the HP Officejet Pro 9010 multifunction printer managed up to 21 copies per minute in black and white in the test. In colour it is up to 15 copies per minute. A good value for an all-in-one device.

More security is offered by an automatic error recovery that guarantees seamless Wi-Fi. Whether the device delivers what it promises in this respect was not verifiable in the test.

The printer uses dynamic security features. This means that you only use original HP printer cartridges. Therefore, higher costs are incurred when buying additional cartridges. Here we recommend cartridges with a larger range, which you can buy from Prindo. Optionally save up to 70 percent on printing costs by using HP Instant Ink.
