Shield performance is worthy of being put points in for the simple reason that it boosts your shield power, no matter what setting you're using. It's hard to tell for me since I've got a frickin lot of stacking bonuses to power, but I think you can get AT LEAST a +5 shield power bonus from shield performance. +5 means a 20% bonus to the base recharge of the shields you're using.
EDIT: To give you raw numbers: with max warp core engineering, shield efficiency, shield performance, on a cruiser and with the efficient impulse engines mk IV, with shield power setting at 50 I have an effective shield power of 76. (oh, warp core theorist character buff as well, but you should have taken that anyway
