The question will then become.....  Should I put them in a RAID or use DrivePool -- :)

It is inevitable over the next few years we will be replacing spin drives with SSD's. The reasons we individually choose RAID or DrivePool won't change assuming both work just as they do with spinning drives. I notice over at OC all the gamers use SSD's in RAID but obviously for speed not redundancy.

but samsung also states 16TB in ssd in 2016 so then we can put 13 of them in a gen8 for ludicrous speed.  112TB raid 5, 16TB boot (though we could suffer with 500GB boot then) and 48TB 3drive stripe for hyperv OSes

I've been running 3x250 GIG Samsung SSD's in a RAID 0 for about two years now.

Screw that.  Get a board that supports NVMe, and some of those Intel 750 PCI-e cards. :)  1.2GB/s writes. :)

 

Aside from that, if you're getting four, two RAID0's and add them to the pool and install the SSD Optimizer balancer. Best of both.
