Thet clock in slightly faster with better BS and CC capabilities, plus a higher strength gun. They're also cheaper.
They lose the stealth field, range and one shot each, as well as a pip of toughness. They're more unpredictable, too.
It's hard to say which is better - but when you factor in squad sizes and the exarch my vote goes to the spiders.
