The only benefit is the very reason the sql backend was initially developed:
you no longer risk loosing data because you forgot to save. This comes with an
immediated drawback as well: as gnucash has no undo, you can't go back to a
previous (automatic) backup when something went wrong. Whether this benefit
weighs up against the drawback is of course personal decision to make.

Hi. New user here, but I'll jump in.
I'm not sure what you mean by "does not show any date before". When you enter transactions, you ENTER a date. Sure, it shows you a date by default, but don't have to use that. Just highlight the date shown, and enter 2017-07-15 or whatever (in your date format).
There's a nice shortcut. In Edit » Preferences, on the Date/Tie tab, select the last radio button, "in a sliding 12-month window" and select
8 for "this many months before the current month." Then you can enter a date as 7-15 (for example, but use your format) and it will supply 2017 because the "window" runs from 8 months before now to 4 months after now.
