Sometimes, yes.  Othertimes, perhaps not.

I seem to recall an early bit of research on interactive computing 
(maybe by Sackman) that showed user preference for a /worse/ average 
response time that was more predictable (narrower range of variance) 
than a better average time that was more erratic.

So, stability over throughput, sort of.
