As someone who's dealing with heavy-duty multimedia apps on Linux on an
almost daily basis, i can tell you i don't quite care about read
performance (well, i do, but you know what i mean), while i do care a
lot about write performance.
Ok, so it also depends on what you're doing. Perhaps other people need a
lot of read speed for their apps. But, as a rule of thumb: reading is
easy, writing is difficult.
