User experience with using sphinxsearch in combination with mysql

Sphinxsearch is great, if you have a problem with mysql fulltext, eg indexing, searching and paging huge tables then look at sphinx - it can be used in combination with mysql. My site http://www.preisomat.com/ compares prices lightning fast thanks to sphinx. Search used to take seconds and paging was not possible for for example 35,000 results out of my 12,000,000 rows table. Now it is very fast. Take a look and you see it yourself.
