So no?

What should I be looking at as far as the info provided on CrystalDisk to determine if the SSD is good or not?
 


This is either:
A. a scammer (a lot of them on craigslist)
B. an idiot that doesn't know the value of the product being sold (also a lot of them on craigslist)
 
Yes - it's really suspicious.
You'd probably get some completely different product - different model or one that's broken.

You'd have to be able to check SMART data and run some tests upon purchase.
And make sure you can get your money back, if there's some problem with the product.

Gotcha.

But looking for at the info from the picture, is there anything that indicates that the SSD is bad? I have no idea how to read all that info in the columns from CrystalDisk.

Ok. I'm planning on using a USB 3.0 enclosure and run Crystal Disk Info to look at the drives he has for sale. Should I use any other program to test the drive?

He says he runs a computer repair shop and will accept returns within 14 days if there are any problems.

The reason he says he's selling them cheap is because they are the older model and they are no longer in warranty with Crucial/Micron.
