    Is there a way to check that Intel 530 SSD 480Gb is real, not showing fake information about model and size?

      Hello, locally I found a offer for several Intel 530 SSDs - 480Gb on very low price....
      Of Course, they are sold as second hand, but even then the price is a bit suspicious.....
      Such size drive, new, here is around 250 Euros, offered is below 100 Euros....
      I know that I can check the drive integrity, life, errors etc with my existing Intel toolbox (I already have one 330 series as system disk installed), but I'm afraid from some firmware possible hacks.... for example to shown its size as 480Gb, but in fact to be 64 or 128... like fake micro SD cards sold mainly from China which is offered as 32 or 64Gb, but in fact they are no more than 2-4Gb.....
      Is there a way to be checked with sure, or Intel Toolbox will find if there is something illegal?
      Thanks
