Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Software compatible with the Raspberry Pi
ODROID-W is compatible with the Raspberry Pi at least as far as software goes. It can run any software built for the Pi.
Pro Amazing heat dissipation
The ODROID-W has some great heat dissipation. From studying the heat of the heatsink, the maximum temperature registered was 37 degrees Celsius, and that was registered when the board was doing a lot of unpacking through apt-get. Normally the temperature is even lower than that.
Pro Can fit most Pi cases
Since it's built to emulate the Raspberry Pi, it's roughly the same shape albeit a bit smaller. But even then it should be able to fit most Raspberry Pi cases.
Pro Fast SATA III port
Pro Das U-Boot bootloader
It uses the opensource boot loader "Das U-Boot".
Pro 3x Gigabit LAN
It has three Gb ethernet ports.
Pro Mini-PCI-E slot
Few SOC boards have this feature--and there are a couple Mini-PCIE RAID cards on the market that might work nicely
Con No on-board Ethernet
The ODROID-W has no on-board Ethernet port available, however this can be fixed by using a docking board which has an Ethernet jack.
Con Needs a multi-USB hub
Since it only has a USB host connector available for a full-sized port, you most certainly will need a multi-USB hub to connect more than one external devices to the board.
