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.
This is the least reliable scanner I have ever used. The software it comes with looks like it was designed in the mid-90s. I've had about one day of good usage, and the rest of the time it doesn't even connect to my PC.
Spend a bit more, and avoid this scanner like the plague.

Scanner is slow, when it does work. Only works about 10% of the time, and completely randomly.
Stay away from.

Too bad my favorite company did this.
I have four Canon cameras + a very highend lens for one, but why they are skimming the bottom of the pond with this item is beyond me.
I only need about 10 scans a week, so no need to spend big bucks. This little device is simply nasty with an iMac. I tossed a perfectly good, 10yr old scanner because the screen was becoming opaque.
This has a nice size, cheap price and single USB connection. But, it took me a while to discover you cannot hook it to an unpowered hub. I am used to hardware sending an alert to the screen; "Not enough power for this operation." (or to that effect)
But besides scanning upside down, I must unplug and re-plug the cable each time when the iMac goes to sleep. This is a 'real' pain in the you-know-what. Arrrrg!

Very Happy With Purchase
I purchased the CanoScan LiDE 110 through TigerDirect over 1-1/2 years ago - still working great after MANY THOUSANDS of scans. I especially like the low form factor because it fits in the side drawer on my old desk (area which was orginally built for a mouse pad pullout). If this scanner ever goes out, I will replace it with the same model.

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:
