Silicon Power, PNY, etc. are old brands, not no names
Sure they are not a gigantic corporation as Samsung.
From SATA options it's probably only MX500, WD Blue 3D NAND and it's Sandisk equivalent what ever it's names is I don't remember anymore.
The M.2 NVMe cost almost equal even cheaper than SATA depending on region.
The Mushin Pilot is very regional and has SM2262 controller, not even SM2262EN. But if you can get it cheaper than other then why not, the performance difference is there but you will likely not notice. There are plenty options with these SM2262/EN controllers.
QLC SSDs are not worth your money.
