I love using Piazza for answering student questions; the user interface is unbelievably nicer than anything else I've seen. It is easy to enter text and easy to see what questions need answering; It is just easy to use.

Piazza does what it should do; good looks; easy to navigate and use. Nothing really that I do not like.

I've been very happy with Piazza so far. We use it for a computer architecture course with 150 students. Last year we used Google Groups, and it was terribly difficult to search for messages, weed out duplicates, and identify good answers. Piazza has done very well on all of these fronts.

I have found Piazza to be an excellent tool, and we use it constantly. I've been using it for two classes; a large, graduate level course in machine learning, and a small, undergraduate tutorial style course in AI. It's been useful for both.
