the quality of kinkos printers are far better then what we use at home on home printers your limited to the amount of megapixils the printer can output into print, on comercial grade printers that number is much higher. the Colors are much better also as windows and or your print program will render the colors as closely as possible the comercial grade can do the colors exactly.
