Internal 3.5" drives have more capacity than 2.5" laptop drives. Are they more reliable?

Mechanical harddisks are 'old tech' and have not fundamentally changed over the last 30 odd years other than their capacity, physical size and interface. They are proven technology and generally very reliable regardless of size or capacity.
