The “best” ssd’s are probably the Samsung 870 ssd’s but the 2010 mac mini uses sata 2 for the ssd connector which means that even if you get an awesome ssd, it’s not going to change the performance that much. I think a cheaper Crucial BX500 is best for the 2010 mac mini and can be found for less than $30
