The drops are "better," in the sense that their quality level is increased, but one only needs so many blue/purple deflectors, engines, and shields, and weapons of types one doesn't use.

I've found that the difficulty settings don't make things appreciably more difficult, they just make everything take longer. About the only value to playing on Elite is to get used to enemies that require a lot of damage to kill.
