I think the secure erase function is best for SSD use since it can use the drives internal controller to wipe the drive. It takes only 4-5 minutes, maybe less on a 128GB SSD.

Yep mate and I saw the other day too it is safer from the point of view that is doesn't affect the internal architecture / components as much as the other erase types like the DISKPART and wipe disk in PW would

Intel's Tool Box for it's SSD's comes with a Secure Erase. I don't know if other brands of SSD's have the same but I recommend checking.
I don't believe that a manufacture of a SSD will allow it's own wipe method to harm the SSD.
