Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 72?

purchasers report that it has average expert reviews with an average expert rating of 68%.
This projector is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better multimedia projectors are available.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a built-in speaker
Has a handheld remote control
Where inspiring presentations begin
Keeping you connected
Engage your audience
Dependability, delivered
Efficient features
Strong and security

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.
