It is a bit more complicated.

Micron is the chip making company - publicly listed with main line of business being B2B to supply memory solutions to anyone that wants it.

Crucial is a wholly owned but semi-autonomous subsidiary of Micron primarily for consumer markets (enthusiasts or not) and a brand. Crucial may or may not use Micron chips for its products. Micron may supply chips to Crucial's competitors. Crucial is not like HyperX because it is more than just a marketing brand. Micron does have a small portfolio of consumer products of its own, probably because of historical reasons that has not moved into Crucial.

Ballistix is just a marketing brand of Crucial which is the one aimed at gaming enthusiasts (this is more like Hyper X).

My google fu revealed that this drive is the same as the Crucial MX300. So it's first generation 3D TLC. Slower than the MX500, definitely slower--but probably more consistent and reliable--than the Intel 660p, which is QLC.

This is a SATA drive. Only 530MB/s read and 500MB/s write.

660p though QLC, it's PCIe and is faster than this.

And it worries me about reliability. I still have nightmares of all those EVO drives being recalled by the various computer vendors that sold them. That first gen ... sucked. Badly.

Not much point going to a SATA M.2 unless it is a laptop and you need space. I think if you are going to use an M.2 you might as well use it for NVME.

Should mention SATA m.2 in the title. Makes a large difference.

There is very little difference between the SATA m.2 drives as they are all constrained by the interface and there is no reason to buy these if your computer supports NVME. Certainly not to replace a 2.5 SSD unless you want to claim that space for another drive.

Aren't Crucial and Micron the same company?

Yes, Crucial is their brand for enthusiasts, like Dell and Alienware or Kingston and HyperX

I bought a 1TB Crucial m.2 sata mx500 for $102 before taxes and sold by newegg. Sale should still be ongoing

If your laptop's m.2 slot is sata only then this, the mx500 or WD blue gives you the most bang for buck.

If your laptop's m.2 supports nvme, then get a nvme drive. If you have a desktop, you can have up to 4 or 6 sata drives and those are cheaper

Be aware - this is SATA, usually the new machines won't recognize them even the form factor is M.2.

Price is good, just to make sure your machine supports M.2 SATA.
