Easy/Medium/Hard does NOT change your loot chances at all. Only M1+ does. If you can't handle M1, just stick to Easy for speed's sake.
Don't worry about dying instantly on M5, even geared out people can only take a few hits. It's all about avoiding and timing your skills on M5, which is a big change in the way you've played the game for the first 90% of the game.
If you wan't to speed things up, run with some friends. Most of the people on here and the reddit D3 forum are very helpful in game. Running with a party of 4 greatly improves your drop rates. And you'll find a lot more patterns/mats to craft some upgrades to hold you over till your legendaries drop.
There are plenty of PSN or GT threads, just add some people and hop into their game. There are even a few guilds you can join. It seems scary/awkward at first, being under-geared and noobish, but most people are more than happy to help out.
And again, don't worry about dying on M5, everyone expects you to.
