Why Has it Scored 63?
What is the Kagoo Score?
We calculate the Kagoo Score for each projector by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.
The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the projector is recommended.
The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec projectors come to market, the older projectors will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
