Is this a new scanner? Where was it bought? Is the number correct? I'm
asking because google knows nothing about this scanner and that's
quite strange.

Correct, the domain is registered by:
domain:      microstar.de
descr:       MEDION AG

I propose to use a separate "Microstar" manufacturer for now. If more
Microstar products pop up or Medion products are sold under the same
number as Microstar products we can merge them.

The idea of the merged entry is that Medion uses the same numbers for
different labels. When we are sure that it's the same with Microstar,
we can merge it. Merging means changing some more .desc files.

Maybe. However, I haven't ever heard of Microstar (no reports yet).
