Thinkpad P71 - New 2nd Hard Drive

I just bought a new Thinkpad P71 which came with 2 drives:

 

- 1TB SSD PCIe TLC OPAL2

- 500GB 7200rpm HDD

 

I'm looking to replace the 500GB with a SSD drive. Would the following SSD be a good option, or would you recommend another SSD?

Thanks!

I've been using a 1TB Crucial MX200 on my P70. Excellent drive! I also have 2 500GB Samsung 950 NVMe drives. It's an older machine; these were current when I installed them, and haven't (yet) felt the need to upgrade them.

I don't have a P71, but I've been using MX500 750GB on an X230 for about a year now. It does not feel as fast as Samsung 850 with its RAPID feature, but from what I've read, MX500 has a lower power usage, which is a nice thing for a laptop. I hope this helps.

Using: P51/i7/64GB/FHD, X230/i5/16GB/WXGA, M58p/Core2Duo/2GB, Q190/i3/4GB, Q190/Celeron/4GB. Gone: S110/Celeron/2GB/WSVGA, W510/i7/16GB/FHD, W520/i7/32GB/FHD, W530/i7/32GB/FHD, P50/i7/64GB/FHD, E330/i3/8GB/WXGA, E440/i5/8GB/WXGA, E440/i5/16GB/WXGA, E460/i5/16GB/FHD, Yoga2 10/Atom/2GB/WUXGA.
