is the
Silicon Power A60 256 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive reliable? The reason I ask this is because its one of the cheapest nvme ssds i can find. Thanks :D

Can't speak to that specific drive, but I've used SP SSDs in the past - couple still in use 3+ years later.
As a 'brand', they're fine. Never the fastest, nothing spectacular about the products, but they do well enough, and reliability seems to be ok.

For what it's worth, the TeamGroup MP33 looks to be the cheapest NVME ~250GB from any sort of 'known' brand, in the US at least.

Looks like the 256GB A60 is ~$38?
And the 500GB P1 is ~$60

In the ~250GB range, I'd opt for either the MP33 or A60.

In the ~500GB range, you have the WD SN550 ($60), Intel 660p ($63) and ADATA XPG SX6000 Pro ($65) that I would opt for ahead of the P1.

All that being said, these SSDs are all pretty competitive with one another, build/spec'd down to a pricepoint. They're all going to perform similarly, and be about as reliable as each other.

Off the top of my head, I believe the XPG has the better warranty (on paper at least), if that matters to you at all
