From my experience in the datacenter where I work, the failure rate on 2.5" drives has been way higher than 3.5" (granted all of the drives we use are 15k vs the 7200/5400/4200 rpm ones commonly put in laptops). The 2.5" drives we've used fail at a rate of at least 2-3 times higher than our 3.5" ones. On the flip side, we can fit way more of them in a rack and the power requirements are lower so its been worth it to keep using them despite the failure rate
