Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 83?

reviews indicate that it has good expert reviews and good user reviews with 84% of buyers recommending this laser printer to others. This laser printer has received two awards including a "Recommended" award from Expert Reviews and an industry award from Buyerslab.com.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer laser printers with better features are available. However this Samsung laser printer has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
The C1860FW has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Supports colour printing
600 x 600 DPI
Slower than average print speed
Smaller than average standard input capacity

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.
