2.5" v. 3.5" SATA for desktop

Has anyone ever compared or know of any real stats on the performance of 7200 rpm 2.5" vs 7200 rpm 3.5" drives?  In my case I'm thinking about dual 7200rpm 2.5" 500GB or 750GB drives to replace my single 1TB 7200 rpm 3.5" drive as in transport my drives have taken damage in the past, plus there is no easy way to mount two drives in my case.  The overall plan is doing a RAID 1 then use a large external for back ups, as far as speed and performance, I don't play any real high end games so if performance is respectable I would be fine, just looking at the idea right now so looking for input, comments as well.
