It's that big a difference, because it STACKS with your Character Perks and XP consumable buffs.
Yeah, it's a good way to level an alt quick if Endgame content is your... endgame

Some people don't like to level too fast, but it's a balance anyway. I mean, you do the planets, do class, do some PVP and get your FP dailies as you level... you would already vastly outlevel your planets by lvl 20. You need to find a compromise. But it also works if the planets bore you after the dozenth time you do them and you want to level just from PVP.

Personally my suggestion is for double XP tokens so that people can use it at times that suit them and not use it if they don't like it. I don't want to overlevel my planets as I am still working through achievements, so I will probably just spread double XP over my alts or play some Endgame (do some dailies or whatever) with my 55s.

I'm not sure why people get so upset about it, there's always a way to work it out without messing anything up.

No way, do these people not have lives?, Most I have gotten over a double xp weekend is 1 - 25, how the hell do you get to 45 in a couple of days?.

get a group, blitz through normal quests, and do fp/heroics. Can get a few levels an hour.

After multiple endgame toons you realize the tricks of the trade. Obviously things like exploration and class mission xp legacy boosts are essential, as well as plenty of consumable universal boosts. Areas like the approach to the shrine of healing on Voss is a great area for xp, there's a bunch of quests with bonus series's all in the same area.

I thought they don't stack during double xp.

They do stack, as well as your legacy xp boosts. However, rested XP is turned off (rested xp only applies to creatures killed anyway, while the double XP weekend applies to everything)

The only thing that doesn't stack with Double XP is Rest XP. Double XP overrides it, making mob xp gains the same during double xp as not. Unless it's in a flashpoint with the legacy boost, or if you're using a consumable (since consumables are doubled too)
