Nice summary of these interesting boards. I have been using an Odroid board for a while, and spotted a few small mistakes in your description. First, the Odroid pictured is the X model, while the model described is the X2. Unfortunately, the X2 sells for $135, not the $89 listed. The Odroid U2, the version I have been using, does sell for $89 and differs substantially from the X2 only in that it has two (instead of six) USB ports. I have gotten around this limitation without issue by using a small powered USB hub.
The Odroid U2 serves as my main Linux machine (Ubuntu 13.04, no overclocking, classic gnome desktop, 1920x1200 resolution using the board's HDMI port). While I do not set out to stress the system (and have not done any benchmarking), I have yet to run any application that showed any noticeable lag. Indeed, I recently installed the Accellera (OSCI) SystemC Simulator on this system for fun, and the performance is reasonable.
I also run Android (Jelly Bean 4.1.2) from an micro SD card, primarily to use XBMC, which runs quite well on this machine under Android (but not yet under Ubuntu)
The Odroid user community (accessible on the Hardkernel site), while not as extensive as that of the Raspberry Pi, is active and helpful.
I have previously owned a Raspberry Pi and a Hackberry A10, and found that both were too underpowered for everyday general use.
