Firstly, I have only used Auctionstealer, so my opinions are limited to this auction website. I did consider jwalker/jbid or whatever its called, but given that auctionstealer is website based, and free for 3 auctions a week, I used this.

Advantages:
1) website based which means you don't need to be at your computer to bid, and you can log in anywhere to alter bids
2) never misses, at least not when set on 10 second free sniping, and paid up 3 second sniping
3) group bids together so that you don't win multiple versions of the same thing
4) bookmark add on to add items into Auctionstealer from Ebay
5) free for 3 bids a week, or USD12 for one month subscription, which means you don't have to sign up for a whole year, and only use it when you really need to
6) simple interface, no stupid adverts for other rubbish you don't want to look at

I almost don't want to leave this review, as its going to give other Ebayers a similar advantage. This software has transformed my use of ebay.

They take your money from paypal via e-cheque and due to the time it takes to clear you are locked out of your account once a month for a few days.
Thats not the worst of it though as during this time all of your previously set snipes are inacsessable , meaning you can't go in and cancel them if need be.
This resulted in me winning several items I no longer needed as I'd won duplicate items prior to the monthly lockout.
The emails from them need to be seen to be belived, they have no respect for their paying customers whatsoever.
I'm going to demand a full refund and give auction sleuth a try.
Beware!

There are bidding groups

If you won multiple versions of the same item, you failed to utilise the bidding group functionality of Auctionstealer. Its possible to group items together, and then once an auction has been won, all the other items are pulled.

I have never been locked out of my account. Is this a shill review??

I tried several snipe services and I found AuctionStealer to be the absolute worst. I missed a few snipes (out of about 20) and inquired politely why I missed. I received an explanation back that didn't really make sense, so I inquired further.

I got a message back telling me if I didn't like it, I could try another service. What?!?! So I wrote back and told them I thought their email was unprofessional and I asked why I was being treated so poorly. If it was operator error (my fault) I just wanted to know what I was doing wrong.

They responded again with a horribly tempermental email that contained borderline profanity. I can't include the response here because he'd have to censor it. Send me a PM if you want to see the response.

I wrote back to say that I was going to write a bad review for them. I went back to the site to find my account, as well as my $20 payment, to be completely erased. I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.

Stay away from auctionstealer folks.

No need to install software or keep my PC on all the time. Have had a few missed auctions at busy times but win the majority. Sniping will be around as long as eBay auctions have fixed end times - use a sniping service if you want to win auctions at the right price!

Sniping service Bidnapper is running two offers for new customers to obtain one year of free sniping, worth $49.99.

The first offer is for users of competitive services AuctionStealer, eSnipe, Auction Raptor, JustSnipe, Snip, PowerSnipe, and myibay. Existing users of those services can switch to Bidnapper here.

The second offer enables eBay sellers to offer their customers a coupon for a free subscription, at no cost to the seller. Sellers can create coupons here.

A number of tools from developer HammerTap have been removed from their site. They are monitoring tool Auction Informant, feedback filter BayCheck (and Pro edition), and eBay mailer BayMail (and Pro edition). Flagship program DeepAnalysis is still available, as are FeeFinder and BidderBlock. A spokesperson said the products had been removed because they didn't comply with eBay policies.

HammerTap also sells a rebranded version of AuctionStealer called HammerSnipe and a rebranded version of ChannelAdvisor Pro called HammerTap Manager.
