I'd get an 860 EVO when both are the same price, but, as the MX500 seems to always be $20-$40 less expensive, I've bought/used/sold three 1 TB MX500s recently...; surprised me to see it hit 563 MB/sec on CrystalDiskMark sequential reads...

However....SATA is fine, but, if your MB has an M.2 NVME slot available, then you should always forgo SATA in favor of Intel's 660P, which is 3x faster than SATA...and same (or even better!) prices..

It does not:
"4 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s Connectors, support NCQ, AHCI and Hot Plug "
