Generation Green is Canon's new environmental initiative. This program encompasses imageCLASS Laser Printers, PIXMA Inkjet Printers, and Scanners. Generation Green is designed to provide business partners, customers and consumers a way to learn about the environmentally-friendly approach Canon takes in designing many of its current and future products. The imageCLASS LBP6000 has the following Generation Green characteristics:
Auto-Duplexing - Using automatic 2-sided printing and copying can save you up to 50% of your paper supply.
Energy Saving Mode - When the imageCLASS LBP6000 enters Energy Saving Mode, it has a low power consumption of 1.3 watts
of energy in Energy Saving Mode.
On-Demand SURF Technology - On-Demand (Surface Rapid Fixing) technology uses a linear ceramic heater that heats
instantly for fast warm up speeds and Quick First Prints. This results in up to a 75% reduction in energy consumption compared
to conventional roller-fixing systems.
Toner Saving Mode - When the imageCLASS LBP6000 is switched into the toner saving mode, it allows for up to a 20% more
economical toner usage.
Toner Cartridge Recycling Program - Canon was the first in the printing industry to create a toner cartridge
recycling program. Canon toner cartridges are 100% recovered with zero landfill waste.
Hardware Recycling Program - Canon is committed to the world community and the belief that we are building a better
world for future generations. We want to work with our customers to ensure appropriate recycling of certain imageCLASS products
to help improve the environment and our local communities.
ENERGY STAR® - Qualified products are 25% more efficient than conventional models. By using less energy these
products reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save energy as well as money. The imageCLASS LBP6000 automatically enters low-power mode
when not in use.
RoHS Compliant - This is a directive from the European Union that restricts the use of hazardous materials found in
electronic products. This product restricts the use of cadmium, mercury, lead, hexavalent chromium, Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB),
and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE).
ISO 14001 - We currently hold the largest Consolidated Certification to the ISO 14001 Standard for our Environmental
Management Systems in the world with over 700 Canon companies certified to the Standard.
Better than inkjet for documents and labels
As a long time ink jet user, I needed something I could print better documents and shipping labels. I installed it on a Windows Vista PC, and on a iMac OSX 10.6.8 and it was easy installation on both machines. Being sure to get all the packing material out was tricky, and when I turned the printer on, I wasn't sure what the noise was about. I'm guessing it needed to heat up or something. I was worried I'd left packing material in there somewhere. Noise shut off after about a minute, and now just whirrs a little before printing. For the low price, this little machine gives excellent quality.

mac user. New with toner
It took me three days to have it printer. I tried every suggestion. My mac kept saying not toner or paper and it would send the file to print and nothing would print. I was ready to send it back when i decided to take the toner out of the printer one more time and look inside in the back then i saw a orange plastic frame, i pulled out and the printer came to life! I spend 10 hours trying to make it work!
Canon please send a manual with words or a big sign saying attached to it saying we need to remove it.
It is inside the printer in the very back!
God bless you every one!

FYI: You need the UK firmware if you have OS X Mavericks. Google is your best friend.
The printer is a pretty good bargain. Looks aesthetically pleasing. It's compact and doesn't take much room. It's quiet. Overall good quality.

Works with MAC
I noted that another reviewer said it would not work with his MAC. This was not my experience at all. I downloaded the drivers and it was all plug and play. I use an early 2008 MacBook. This has been a good printer. Inexpensive black and white printing. Just what I needed.
