Generation Green is Canon's new 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 that Canon is taking to design many of its current and future products and solutions; for example, possible cost savings through energy efficiency. The Pro9000 Mark II has the following Generation Green characteristics:
4 in 1, 2 in 1 Printing - This option allows users to place multiple pages on 1 page, saving up to 75% of your paper supply.
Individual Ink Tanks - The individual ink tanks may reduce the amount of wasted ink from cartridges as compared to a composite 4 color cartridge, by allowing users to replace individual color tanks rather than entire color cartridges.
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 Compliance - This 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 have older op system
I have been using a Canon I9900 for almost 10 years and it finally started having problems and wouldn't print properly. So I was forced to make a change. Looked at all the pro printers out there. Called a different company's customer service (two different times) to ask some questions and both call conversations with them were terrible. The other company's customer service people didn't know their own products and didn't speak very good English.
When I called Canon customer service, I got a friendly and very informed person who answered my questions easily, confidently and indeed correctly. Wow! What a difference!
Bought the product, read the instructions and did the complete install by myself ( I have never done a install before) with zero problems! Furthermore, my first test print matched the screen! And I am exceedingly picky about colors and rendition. Beyond that, it works with my OLD photoshop so everything is very familiar. Almost like not skipping a beat.

Great printer almost.
I use this printer in the spring and fall set up in an enclosed trailer and take it to pointing dog field trials to print on site. My first 13" printer was noisy and didn't last long, also wasn't very expensive and it printed panoramic's to 13x44"; I really like that ability! This 9000 MKII is quiet and does great print's IMO. I say that knowing other's will find something to complain about! This was my first Canon product and my second was another table top printer, very inexpensive one but needed in a pinch and it's done better than I had hoped for.
This year I am hoping to get another 13x19" printer that will do panoramic to 44", canon doesn't have one. My 9000 MKII is also supposed to print 11x14 but I can't figure that out. I have only pre-determined size's I can print. I can live with that but would lots rather be able to decide what size's I print.
