There might be RAID controllers that can do SSD caching.  SSD caching
means two extra disks for the cache (or what happens when the cache disk
fails?), and ZFS doesn't increase the number of SAS/SATA ports you have.

How does it do the checksumming?  Read everything after it's been
written to verify?

I'll consider using it next time I need to create a file system.

Knowledge is volatile and fluid.  Software is power.
