What are your thoughts on this SSD using Crystal Disk? Any concerns?

You can't tell anything from that. All the SSD is reporting is number of hours. This is not unusual - most SSDs don't report much of anything in SMART. Since it's only been running 253 hours, it's practically new.

SSDs tend to work until they die nowadays. I have seen some develop intermittent cell failure and Spinrite is your friend there. Do a Level 2 on it (never a level 4) and if you get any bad sectors I wouldn't trust it. Spinrite may also force SMART to reveal a little more, but most SSDs really report very little to SMART.
