[root at gerencia warren]# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 04a5:20fe Acer Peripherals Inc. (now BenQ Corp.)
SW2 5300U

The above appears to agree with the information on the sane-snapscan
page, which gives the USB ID for the Acer/Benq 5300 as "0x04a5, 0x20fe"
and identifies the firmware to use is u254v042.bin.

Of course, the firmware file I have might be corrupt. I downloaded it
from benq.com along with a raft of other firmware files, but there was
no checksum to make sure that it downloaded correctly.

Note that my scanner is a 5300U, and the sane-snapscan page only
mentions 5300 (without the "U". I have been assuming that this is not
significant, given that the USB IDs are the same.
