Why Has it Scored 84?

reviews indicate that it has very good expert reviews and great user reviews with an average overall rating of 85%, based on 85 reviews. This laser printer has received two awards including a "Best Buy" from Expert Reviews and a "Value for Money" from Itpro.co.uk.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer laser printers with better features are available. However this Ricoh laser printer has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
The C250SF has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Supports colour printing
Supports duplex printing
Very slow print speed
Slower than average time to first page

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.

    When Are Most New Ricoh Laser Printers Released?

    We couldn't see any prominent pattern in the release dates for new Ricoh laser printers over the last 3 years.

    Four new Ricoh laser printers were released in August 2018 making it the biggest month that year for new Ricoh laser printer releases. January was the biggest month in 2017 for new Ricoh laser printers, with three new Ricoh laser printers released that month. In 2016 most new Ricoh laser printers were released in December, with seven new Ricoh laser printers released that month.

    .

    How Fast Do Ricoh Laser Printer Prices Drop After Release?

    Ricoh laser printers tend to depreciate faster than most laser printers.

    Most laser printers drop in price by 1% in the first 6 months after release. In the first 6 months after release, Ricoh laser printers drop in price by 89% on average. That means that on a typical Ricoh laser printer costing £389 you could save on average £345 by waiting 6 months before buying.
