Just my 2¢
On Party, the regular tables are 10-minute blinds, the speed tables are 5-minute blinds and the turbo tables are 3-minute blinds. There is almost no activity at the regular tables, so, if I want to play more than about three SnGs over a 12-hour period, I have to play the speed tables. I find that they don't feel all that rushed, as you get 15 seconds to make a decision with a 40-second time bank if you need extra time. I have yet to feel rushed.
Over about 35 SnGs my VPIP is pushing 40% and my PFR is around 20%, so I think I'm playing far too loosely, but my analysis of the situation is that, when the blinds increase every 5 minutes, a 14/12 player gets blinded out.
