Considering to buy a used SSD, need help

Hello, dear THG community.
There is a good deal on the used market at my location - I can buy an EverGreen Plus 2.5” SATAII 250Gb SSD for a mere 100 bucks. I want to install it on a SATA II machine, so the performance is pretty much bottlenecked with the motherboard and the old SATA II on the SSD doesn't matter much. The issue is, it does not support the SSDLife I'm used to, so the seller cannot provide enough info on it. Take a look at the screenshot:

It only supports another software suite, and I'm not quite sure about the data it provides. Here are the screenshots from the seller:

So, the problem it, I don't quite get it, are those 500+ erase counts good enough, so that I can use the SSD for everyday home tasks? It won't wear out after a couple of weeks with about 10-15 Gb data written everyday?
Please answer ASAP as the deal is pretty good and I would buy the SSD already, if not for the describen issue.
Thanks in advance, and sorry for my not so perfect English.

The EverGreen Plus is an industrial MLC drive rated at 3000 cycles as you can see HERE. With an erase count of 580 it will last you for many years in home use.
