What is the Kagoo Score?

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

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

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