I need to upgrade a Lenovo T450 (model 20BUS05B08 laptop) to a 1 TB solid state hard drive.

One of the hard drives that is fully compatible is a Crucial MX300 1TB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD (found here.

What are some other 1 TB solid state hard drives that are fullly compatible with this Lenovo T450 laptop?

I have a Samsung 1 TB NVM-e SSD drive for my X1 that would likely work. You need to check with Lenovo Support

The only ones "fully" compatible are those offered by Lenovo for that system.  If they aren't made specifically for/sold by Lenovo for that system, then they are not, as *I* would define them, "fully" compatible.

Drives that should work without issue include any 9.5mm 3.5 SATA based SSD in my opinion.  An NVMe drive won't work if there is no NVMe socket!
