Belt sanders can take a lot of material off in a short amount of time. Due to this, they can either be great tools or tough to use. They typically aren't helpful when dealing with thin materials, but can get through rough cuts and tough fits easily. A hand-held belt sander lets you control the tool as you work, while a stationary belt sander is the opposite - the tool is stationary while you maneuver the work piece.
Due to their aggressive nature, belt sanders are typically only used on wood in the beginning stages of sanding, or to remove paint or finishes. Once enough material is removed, a more accurate, controllable sander is necessary.
