Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 80?

reviews indicate that it has good expert reviews and good user reviews with 89% of buyers recommending this laser printer to others.
This laser printer is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer laser printers with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Samsung laser printer has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Supports Wi-Fi
Supports duplex printing
Very slow print speed
Only 2400 x 600 DPI

What is the Kagoo Score?

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

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

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