do I always have to use either --checksum or --times ?

You should almost never use --checksum. It is slower than just
re-copying everything. You should almost always use --times (or
--archive which includes --times). Without this rsync is almost as dumb
as cp. Also, ssh has been the default --ssh for a long time.
