I strongly recommend you read up the below links.

convergence for RSTP is in the order of seconds. (I had 16 switches in a ring, and converged in less then 3s).

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/blades/3030/software/release/12.2_37_se/configuration_/guide/swmstp.html

if you are forecasting to have many VLANs, then go for MSTP which will enable RSTP. but i you will only have fewer, then you may choose to configure R-PVST.

Pls rate all helpful posts.
