Generation Green is Canon's environmental initiative. This program encompasses eligible Scanners, PIXMA Inkjet Printers, and imageCLASS laser printers. Generation Green is designed to provide business partners, customers and consumers a way to learn about the environmentally- friendly approach Canon is taking to design many of its current and future products and solutions; for example, possible cost savings through energy efficiency. The LiDE110 has the following Generation Green characteristics:
USB Powered - The low power requirement of the LiDE110 allows it to be powered solely through a USB cable. The elimination of the external power source also reduces the amount of materials needed during production.
ENERGY STAR- qualified products are 25% more efficient than conventional models. By using less energy these products reduce greenhouse gas emissions and saves energy as well as money.
RoHS Compliant- RoHS is a directive from the European Union that restricts the use of hazardous materials found in electronic products. This product contains no cadmium, mercury, lead, hexavalent chromium, Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB), or Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE).
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 help ensure appropriate recycling of products to help improve the environment and our local communities.
Refurbishing Program- The Canon U.S.A., Inc. refurbishing facility manages all waste stream processes for Canon products, so Canon has full control over recovery and salvage for Canon products, not third-party vendors.
I was in need of a basic scanner and this scanner fulfilled all the requirements. It has a compact design and is easy to use. It's not the fastest, but the scan resolution is high. I like that fact that I don't need to plug in the scanner to a power outlet and instead can just plug it into a usb slot. After using this item for a few months, I now hear unusual sounds when scanning and is louder than usual. It only happens when the scanner light is scanning and passing the document and is fine when the scanner light is moving back to it's regular position.

Simple scanner for all my documents. Works great. Software has unnecessary directory stuff, so I configure to send directly to a folder on my desktop at a good resolution for legal docs, and skip the software dialogs.

I have been using this product for 3 years to transfer all those ancient pictures to the computer. It is so easy! Even for a retired person.
Now the kids gave me a new computer and the installer just plugged the scanner in... of course it would not work and I cannot find the CD-ROM
One call to Canon and the wonderfully patient CSR helped me download the software....
Will be trying to scan more old photos soon! Thank you, English guy in VA!

I copy all that I could t5hink of to reinstall on the PC but I guess I overlook the scanner The scanner is hooked up and, before doing this, it has woked Okay for a couple of years now.

Optical resolution is a measure of maximum hardware sampling resolution, based on ISO 14473 standard.
Color document scanspeed is measured with ISO/IEC 24712 Newsletter. Scan speed indicates the time measured between pressing the scan button of the scanner driver and the on-screen status display turning off. Scan speed may vary depending on system configuration, interface, software, scan mode settings, document size, etc. Additional Disclaimers:
