thanks for the help everyone.. to the people telling me to see for myself I guess that's what it boils down to. The only reason I'm really seeking opinions is because right now I'm such a newbie that I don't want to make stupid decisions and waste money that I barely have lol

If it were me--and this is just me--I would take the mic back, ask them for store credit, save up another $100 or so, and then buy a better mic that would fit my long term needs. You'll be much happier in the long run. In the short term, just make the best of the B1. There are people on this board and around the net who rave about how good it is and can be with some mods.
You know what I was planning on doing that. Only reason that I bought this one was because I have my first mixtape dropping in a week and I wanted to record things on something better than the behringer. To be honest the B1 was giving me a terrible high pitched vocals. But maybe after I'm done and get more cash I'll return this one and get a better mic. I have 30 days to do so. Anything you can suggest that's an upgrade?

lol man i feel like im losing it.. but now I don't know what the front or back is. The side that looks like the front is giving me maybe a 3/10 volume on my software which is ok because the vocals sound smooth..
other side is giving me like 8/10 volume but vocals are a bit less smooth.
does the side with the high volume mean its the right side to record on? It's the same side with the blue light.. or is it the other side.. which has the logo and mic name and is more smooth..
I know one day ill look back at this question and laugh but right now its serious
