[Solved] Is “dd” a reliable tool to make an SSD image?

user472052 Asks: Is “dd” a reliable tool to make an SSD image?
I want to back up my SSD using the Linux dd command, but I’m not sure how reliable that method will be. I think I read somewhere that dd does not check for or report errors, so obviously if true then it will be a deal breaker.

This will be the command:

sudo dd status=progress bs=512K if=/dev/nvme0n1 of=/media/d/ssd.img

So please explain how reliable the dd command can be for said use case.

And, are there any more reliable and/or easier alternative?
