2.5" vs 3.5" reliability

Also, does the orientation of the drive play any part in its performance (for instance placed flat vs on its side like a book on shelf)?

Orientation has no effect on modern hard drive performance.

Even modern 2.5" 7200 rpm drives however like the 1tb Travelstar 7k1000 seems to lag behind the better 3.5" 2tb drives which I've had a look at not long ago. http://storagereview...r_7k1000_review
If you are interested in 3.5" then there is at least two writeup which might be of interest. 2TB http://reybasti.hubp...-Drive-For-2013 Worth to mention which he not did is that the 2TB Barracuda only have one year warranty.
