    Bought a new Intel 520. Is the chassis back plate suppose to look very tarnished? [Pics]


      Bought a new Intel 520 from ncix.com in Canada. Drive came in a very small cardboard box with the drive in a sealed static bag and a Intel SSD sticker.


      My main gripe with it is that it doesn't look new. The metal/aluminum on the back of the drive looks tarnished and scratch marks appear where the screws go to mount it. One side of the chassis has a black skid line.


      Should I contact NCIX about this? The website advertise it as a brand new drive..
