Default Need help please.

So I purchased my third 240GB sandforce SSD, and because I didn't want to pay full price I purchased one that said refurbished by corsair.

After I got the product I noticed that everything looked the same except of saying 240GB on the SSD it said "Refurbished" so I was like hmm okay.

After hooking it up to my computer, starting windows and formatting the drive, I go to corsair toolbox to do some firmware update and... I can't because the firmware is weird.

The model number shows as:

Storage Space [UDS:BusTypes.btOther] Fixed Disk
Serial Number shows as nothing
firmware version as 0.1
Size as 238.3GB
ATA Version: Minor version is not reported (unknown)
features: nothing
temperature: nothing.

while my other SSDs show as

Corsair Force 3 SSD SCSI Fixed Disk
Serial number longnumber here
Firmware Version 5.05
Size 240GB
ATA Version ACS-2 revision 3 (ATA8-ACS)
features LBA,DMA,TRIM,SMART,security, NCQ, APM
temperature nothing

Can someone please tell me whats going on here? should I give this back to newegg and get a new one or what? or is this normal?

Doesn't look normal. It should at least say its a Corsair SSD in the toolbox.

I'd wait for a reply from an Corsair Employee to tell you if its ok or not.
