I would imagine JSON and XML especially require more resources to turn back into an array than serializing.

Using json in a php application I found that a single comma out of
place could render the data un-usable. Surely a result of my being a
newb to php. I use json well enough. But I have take as granted that
one had better keep p's and q's nice and tight.
