IMO, the best material is PVC that looks like wood and is available in
the same sizes. It's especially good for areas that are prone to rotting,
eg behind gutters. Aside from that, it also depends on what size you
need, if you have a saw to rip it down to size if necessary, etc. Otherwise
the sizes you need and what they have available may limit the choices.
Fascia is typically just pine. Another choice is a finger joined product,
available in various lengths, already primed, etc. It's easier to find
that in long lengths that are ready to go, no checks than pine.
How long it lasts depends on how well you paint it and keep it painted. Exposed, that stuff will fall apart or warp in no time. And I would
probably not use it in any locations that could be a problem, eg behind
gutters in shady areas, etc.
