[Novalug] Filesystem encryption thoughts

I wanted to know ppl's experiences with filesystem encryption on linux: good
and bad. I am looking into encrypting my swap partition and my home
partition, but not my root partition on my brand new laptop. However, I am
concerned about increased data transfer latency. Will my multimedia files
i.e. movies and music be laggy when played back from an encrypted partition?
I am thinking of using
dm-crypt and wanted to know how it compares to other encryption tools
and loopback aes.
Thank you in advance,
