Ok, for starters they can't get back up, as they aren't classed as Necrons for the Necron special rule. This also means that they can't be teleported by either the Monolith or VOD, so they're reduced to footslogging to get into CC, which is where they kick butt
They rock vs termies because their Warsythe negates both Armor and Inv saves, so as long as you wound them, they die.

Having only one attack, at a relatively low initiative (3), is a big letdown, even with it's mega weapon. Space marines will attack before you, and if they are terminators or have bolt pistols and CC weapons, they have twice as many attacks. You'll take a casualty or two even before you get to attack. And since only half of your attacks will hit (statistics-wise), and two thirds will wound, you aren't going to be killing that many guys. And whatever powerfisted terminators are left will be mopping up the surviving pariahs. And for their high points cost, you aren't getting your points back.
My Eldar friend says I am stupid for not using them, howerver...
If they get to CC, they have trouble with thier low INT and onnly one attacck. Anything that you really want to kill will single them out and attack them. They are OK against termies, but you will never get into CC with them.
They are always the first target of Ord weapons, Lascannons, Missles, plasma. No inv save, no WBB, high point cost, preception of being very deadly. You will have everything shooting at them, and they are expensive, so you can't even use them to soak up shots.
Probably the most useless Necron unit.
We'll I'll be the first one to say I hate Pariahs, they arn't "useless." Overly specialized, but not useless. Again if you want to their correct application and usage read Gojiratoho's tactica.

If someone helps you, or you just like what they say, rep them
i usauly shoot the crap outa them wid the two barbed strangles on me carnifex, they get there saves but u cant save em all

"Battlecannon shells are falling on my head but that doesn't mean i soon will be dead nannanana" A tribute to that terminator sweet 2+ save.
