esxi 5.5+ host cache best practices?

I migrated from a HP EVA array to a Nimble CS300 a few months ago, at start I had host caching configured for our esxi hosts as they had mirrored SSDs installed in them. My thinking is local SAS storage will be faster than navigating an HBA to get to the Nimble - am I right in that? Has anyone played with host caching and Nimble - seeing what effect turning it on an off has on performance and utilization on the array?
