    It really does depend in what context though. Roaches can't attack air..... so if I could choose between either for any random battle I would have to say hydra.

    Although there is more chance for better micro with roaches - which I really like
    My old fansite: http://www.starcraftpad.netfirms.com/ I made.

    Hydras:

    + Buffs DPS
    + Anti-air Capabilities
    + requires roach vs ground

    Roach:
    + Meat shield
    + Subterfuge
    + Regens HP
    + Requires Hydras vs AIR
    +

    I think the damage done by Hydras is insane enough to make them better.

    I vouch for Hydras as well. The ability to hit air is priceless in my opinion.
    Of course, they are my favourite unit in the game, so I'm slightly biased.

    Hydra deffinetly, They have a much higher rate of dps to be had. But 3-4 collossi just smoke em out

    I prefer hydras but I leave it as a circumstantial answer. that hydras can hit air and are easier to get early than mutas makes them attractive, but against a pure ground army, roaches can be better. A good mix of the 2 is excellent against either VR/Stalker/(option zlots) or MMM w/ banshee or vike support.
