I have to choose between these 3 for a 1TB SSD. I'd like to know which one has better performance, which is more reliable and if it is worth spending more for the EVO.

For reference, 860 EVO 1TB will cost me $170 and QVO/MX500 both are $140
 
The MX500 is an excellent performer, and is my standard 'go to' when $30 less than Samsung's 860 EVO *and when needing a SATA SSD+...

If this is a new build, however, and you have M.2 NVME slotavailable, Intel's 660P NVME drive is likely near or even less that the MX500's price, but, NVME is 3x as fast in sequential reads...(1 TB 660P is only about $99 on Amazon, currently)
