Pay the extra for an EVO, you won't regret it!

I know the headline speeds don't convey the full story, but being a Samsung, is this really that bad?

Yes and no.

Caching helps with a lot of the speed issues which affects these Quad-Layer types in particular (until you exceed the cache that is!), however they fail much quicker as each cell gets battered as there's 4 bits squashed into each cell.

The Evos are TLC (3 to a single cell) which seem to offer the best balance between price/speeds/writes etc at the moment.

Some of these QLC devices have actually been benchmarked slower than a 7200rpm mechanical HDD once you hit the cache limit!

You'd arguably be better off with a good Hybrid (SHDD) drive for a lot of use cases which will give you more storage for your buck.

Or don't buy a Samsung at all and instead go for something like a TCSunbow X3.

You'd take that over a 500gb EVO? Why?

It's double the storage and the difference probably isn't noticeable to your average user

Slow speeds only show up after you saturate the cache which is fairly large 42Gb+ IIRC. This also includes a DRAM cache as well ... unlike the bx500
SSHD are a dead duck, a cheap SSD is far better in most use cases, and for sheer bulk storage a std HDD is half the price...imo
What's the difference between the QVO & EVO?

I think it this case there's no connection. The 'Q' is probably related to the quad level flash, the EVO is just the line of models.

I probably would not take a completely manufactured and designed chinese part

QVO uses QLC which is inferior

Don't worry a lot of people don't want the details. They look at capacity and price and ignore performance.

This leaves plenty of stock when premium SSDs are reduced in price for any user interested in quality and performance.
