i use discogs already like 15 years. For me it's a music database. I've got around 3000vinyls and in that way it's easy to know what i have and don't have.
If i search something i can find it more easy in my collection via categories i made on discogs according to my collection.
I'm planning also to sell some stuff and it's also easy via discogs.

As they are for selling your music
I have never bought anything from those sites, but I regularly use discogs because they are very good at keeping track of on which records individual artists appear. Especially in genres where there's a lot of collaboration and adhoc/short-lived groups that's a great way to discover new stuff.

Sounds like you two are big into the community. Why Discogs over AllMusic?

No reason really, I never did an in-depth comparison (though a quick test does suggest discogs finds some more hits)
