Hi

I can't see any difference between these two drives apart from form factor, its for my new desktop build and my case supports both, I'm guessing there's no disadvantage in using a 2.5" drive since its cheaper?

The performance characteristics will be different since they'll be using different size/density/numbers of platters.

3.5" drives used to come out ahead in performance at 7200rpm but I haven't kept up with the designs in the last few years.
