Hitachi Deskstar 3TB 5400 RPM or 7200 RPM Drives?

Hi, I would like to buy the Sansdigital Enclosure which supports 3 TB Drives and uses USB 3.0. It will be used for media playback. There's a big difference in price between the Hitachi 5400 RPM Drives and the 7200 RPM Drives. Should I go with the Hitach Deskstar 5400 RPM Drives or the 7200 RPM Drives? I will pay more if performace is that much better on the Hitachi Sata 6Gb/ps 7200 RPM Drives. Is the difference in performance Noticeable? Any info is greatly appreciated
