Question about ssd cache

Question

I will be updating my xpenology server to DSM 6.1. I found on internet some cheap (used ) small 16 gb ssd drives ( something like this https://www.amazon.com/Apacer-16GB-180d-Module-8C-F1DD2-LR10B/dp/B00TP3JHJS). Does it worth to buy them and use it as ssd cache? Is it going to speed up acces to server files, download station, etc ( I have corei5 with 4gb ram and 8 hdds as a home server)?

"To improve the random read and write performance of the storage space on which it is mounted." Does it means that it will be only cache for specified hdd, that I will choose ( for example disk selected for Download Station ), or to all disks that are in the server? I am thinkin about connecting 2x 16gb ssd in raid.

SSD cache can improve the performance of random access by storing frequently accessed data on the SSD cache.

 And as far as i know for all drives
