Hi, I am currently in the process of deciding which 500gb m.2 ssd to buy for my desktop, I prefer to buy from Umart due to convenience.
EditMy motherboard is the asus prime B360m-k which supports both sata and nvme modes for m.2

A list of possible m.2 drives
Crucial MX500 500gb - 89 AUD

Which motherboard or pre-built PC are you using?

You listed different interfaces, nvme PCIe and SATA drives. Be sure you that your desktop is compatible.

I would get a normal SATA SSD 2.5"
Crucial MX500

The motherboard (asus prime b360mk) specs say it supports both modes
