Why Has it Scored 67?

It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better inkjet printers are available. View the latest inkjets 2018.
This inkjet printer has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Supports colour printing
600 x 600 DPI print quality (black, best quality)
Only 4800 x 1200 DPI
Very slow print speed (colour)

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each inkjet printer by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the inkjet printer is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec inkjet printers come to market, the older inkjet printers will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
