I've used it twice (one sell, one buy) both successfully.

In defense of Ebay (who in reality, can afford to defend themselves, but I'm just stating why I like it), your item, when well-described, will always command fair market value and it is guaranteed to sell (assuming you're using auction and not Buy It Now) quickly as opposed to waiting for one buyer to come along when they see your post in a forum.

I'll use ebay when I want to just move the item without waiting for responses.

It seems to have only been going for a couple of months, or are posts removed after that time?

Are there any other better places to sell and buy photographic stuff?

I hate that eBay takes 10% then PayPal takes another bite. Ten percent is way too much, they must be raking it in.
