SQL Select | Join tables where data not in second table

SQL 2005
To simplify what I want to do...
I have table1 and table2.  I want to select the records in table1 that are not in table2.  I know I can do this by the following:
select t1.name, t1.address from t1 where t1.id not in (select t2.id from t2)

But is there a faster way?  The only field in t2 is "id".

select t1.name, t1.address from t1
where NOT EXISTS (SELECT  1 FROM  t2 where t2.id = t1.id )

and sometimes LEFT JOINS are faster, but it depends

You can do it this if you are looking for a different way of doing this:
Select t.*
from  Table1 t LEFT OUTER JOIN Table2 c
           ON t.ID = c.ID
Where c.ID IS NULL
