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 is taking in designing many of its current and future products. The imageCLASS MF4370dn has the following Generation Green characteristics:
Auto-Duplexing - Using automatic two-sided printing and copying can save you up to 50% of your paper supply.
4-in-1, 2-in-1 Printing - This option allows users to place multiple pages on one page, saving up to 75% of your paper supply.
PC Faxing - Send documents directly from your PC to a fax machine to reduce paper and print usage.
Energy Saving Mode - When the imageCLASS MF4370dn enters Energy Saving Mode, it has a low power consumption of 3 watts of energy.
On-Demand SURF Technology - On-Demand SURF (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 MF4370dn is switched into the toner saving mode, it allows for up to a 20% more economical toner usage.
AIRSHELL Cartridge Packaging - AIRSHELL is packaging material for our imageCLASS toner cartridges that utilizes air cushioning. It reduces product package sizes, helps to improve shipping efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions generated during transport by approximately 23% to 49%.
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.
Refurbishing Program - The Canon refurbishing facility manages waste stream processes for Canon products, so Canon has full control over recovery and salvage for imageCLASS products, not third-party vendors.
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 MF4370dn 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.
Energy Star qualified products and practices help you save money and reduce greenhouse emissions by meeting strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.

Difficult to Install
I like the printer when it works. Every time I try to use this with a different computer, I can't get it to work. It installs, and the computer says it's working properly, but nothing prints. In 2 years, I have never gotten network scanning to work at all. The print quality on copying and USB scanning is poor. The original must be high print quality to get a decent copy.
If you can get it to print, the print quality is excellent. I'm still on the original toner cartridge that came with the printer, so it must full-size, not a small starter toner. It could also be because I can't get anything to print to use it.

5600F ran fine on Win2003 box, but the 4730's software won't install. Paper handling problems led me to exchange repeatedly at BestBuy.

OK, to be fair, the pros are: relatively fast, adequate print quality and small footprint.
The cons are: Very flimsy construction, especially the paper tray area. It will NEVER pull in paper evenly from the optional feed area. When I print checks, the lines are usually diagonal across the page. Looks real professional. <sarcasm>
Occasionally won't wake up to print, though I guess that fulfills it's energy saving feature. Dead=no energy use.
All you need to do is slide it forward on your desk and reset the power switch. Bonus exercise!
I wouldn't buy another printer from Canon if it were discounted 90%.
The menu options are ridiculous. The only way it could be more obscure is if were in morse code.
Funny that when the paper stop on the front on the unit is extended, it obscures the Canon logo. Planned? Probably

So it took me a little researching to figure out the scanner wasn't working. All it took was for me to hit the Scan button on the printer twice to change it to "USB Scanning" instead of "Network Scanning" and it worked perfectly. Love this printer, super fast printing, just wish it did color.
