Anybody know the major differences between the different Bitcoin Exchanges. 

Here is what I can tell so far...

MtGox is the major one and and Tradehill is it's main competitor and there are now a dozen others.

MtGox and Tradehill are the only two I've seen with functioning APIs.

MtGox has had some major security issues that put it's security into question but I haven't really seen anything to show that any other exchanges are really that much more secure.

Any thoughts?

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

It looks like they only accept credit cards through paypal and they don't recommend sellers do this.  Have you bought a lot of bitcoins this way?

Bitmarket is not a "real" exchange. They act as intermediaries for matching orders, and as an escrow for BTC. You can't transfer other currencies to/from Bitmarket, the transfer get done outside of Bitmarket. There is significant lag with this system, something that's not good considering current market instability. There is also a significant risk of getting scammed (even if you don't use PayPal).

CampBX has a better API than everyone else in my opinion. Exchangebitcoins.com is also very popular.

Bitmarket does not accept Paypal anymore.
