I wouldn't say bad or something, I will only say that the drive main focus is determined by Intel as a drive for Professionals. Intel splits their drives into different categories depending on the main focus of the drive: https://ark.intel.com/#@SolidStateDrives

  1. Consumer SSDs
  2. Enthusiast SSDs
  3. Professional SSDs
  4. Data Center SSDs
  5. Embedded SSDs
  6. Intel® Optane™ Memory

The version for consumers is the 540s, I did a comparison between those 2 is that the 5400s allows you to remotely wipe out with "Intel® Remote Secure Erase" and the 540s doesn't have that, I guess that makes it a little bit more expensive, I don't know just saying, you can see the comparison here: https://ark.intel.com/compare/94204,94452

The caution about a used SSD is you don't know how much life might have been consumed already. If you look at it purely from a price-per-GB perspective, you can get similar new now. e.g. Amazon UK have a Sandisk 480GB for £51. There may be differences in performance, but generally if you're looking at SATA drives, I assume max performance isn't the priority anyway.
