Why Has it Scored 86?

The C250 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Supports colour printing
Supports duplex printing
Only 2400 x 600 DPI
Very slow print speed

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.
