Does anyone have any experience with Verbatim SSDs? The 512 GB one seems a lot cheaper than the 500GB Samsung 860 EVO.

Never heard of them. If you want something cheaper but still good look at a Crucial MX500
In my country, the Crucial MX500 is around 10 dollars less than the Samsung, where on the other hand the Verbatim is 40 dollars less, which would make a bigger difference.
Would you get the Crucial or the Evo?

Let me know the exact model and I'll tell you what's inside. If it's the Vi550, it utilizes the Phison S11 with 3D TLC - this would be DRAM-less, falling into the Storage/Light categories of my guide along with the other drives that share that hardware configuration: Inland SATA, Patriot Burst, etc.
 
Verbatim is almost certainly just that brand name on someone elses second rate drive.
Verbatim the company is known for quality DVD/CD. Not solid state drives.
I remember when they were known for not-so-good 5-1/4" floppies... then, apparently, later on, they supposedly started making very good floppies.

That's definitely a name I haven't heard in a while.

Verbatim Vi550 S3 512GB
This is the model.
What do you recommend?

If you're going to be using it as your primary drive - including for OS - then you can definitely do better. Anything in my Budget SATA or Performance SATA categories is optimal for that sort of usage (read the notes) if you're going with a SATA drive. The list is not exhaustive, you can check my spreadsheet for other models that may share the same hardware as drives in those categories, but I don't list everything. Johnny Lucky's database has more (linked at bottom of my spreadsheet) but otherwise you have to figure out what's inside.

Your guide is incredible, though... the sad thing is that the only options I have in my country are a few. So, I think I'll get the Crucial MX500 or the Samsung 860 EVO, since I have no slot for M.2
