Yes, that's mentioned in another branch of this thread.

It didn't look like it's actually available to me.

Note also that there are different versions and only one has a SATA disk; the
others will be some sort of soldered-on or daughter-board flash module.

I recognise that as hdparm output, but on what device exactly?

On my TS-119 (Marvell processor) with a SATA SSD, I get:

 Timing cached reads:   634 MB in  2.00 seconds = 316.54 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:  404 MB in  3.01 seconds = 134.00 MB/sec
