That link appears to be foo'd, and I can't find the original doc.

But others (mostly on the user's list historically) have seen very significant
performance improvements with SSDs, *IF* the entire index doesn't fit
in memory.

If your index does fit entirely in memory, there will probably be some
improvement when fetching stored fields, especially if the stored fields
are large. But I'm not sure the cost is worth the incremental speed
in this case.. Of course if you can get your IT folks to spring for SSDs,
go for it :)
