The only thing missing is a handle in the side to help when putting it and taking it out of overhead bins (not a deal breaker)

I have used this convenient suitcase for 10 trips over the past 6 months. It has served well and is light as advertised. My last trip involved--as usual--rolling it over uneven pavement outdoors. One of the wheels jammed, and the edge was literally flattened due to the friction against the pavement. At my destination, I was able to undo the jam with a screw driver and a lot of elbow grease. Now, I cannot find a way to replace the plastic swivel coaster wheel. This is clearly one of the most vulnerable parts of what would otherwise be a great piece of luggage. I could easily replace it if one were available. Why don't manufacturers offer such parts? $100 is too much to pay for only 6 months of use. Next time I'll look for more durable wheels, from another brand.

3 1/2 stars. PROS: I like the size, weight (very light), the amount of stuff I can pack, the zippered compartment, it's expandable. It still looks good after several uses, including a 6 week trip to Europe (where we did laundry about once a week). CONS: There's no side or bottom handle so it can be hard to lift or carry just using the handle on the top. The telescoping handle feels a bit weak.

It's only the fourth time that I used it after I purchased it, and it breaks. One roller become completely not rollable.

This arrived completely as advertised, so I can't complain about that, and after an initial trip cross-country with the bag, it so far appears to have the expected Samsonite high-quality production. However, I don't know if i'd purchase a hard-sided piece of luggage for my carry on next time, as although it fit perfectly in the overhead bin, there's no ability to make it fit when overhead space is limited like a soft-sided bag would. It's also impractical if you want to open it to get out a jacket or other small item, as I felt like I had to unzip it almost completely. Again, this isn't a flaw in the product's design (it's meant to operate the way it does), but I could quickly see why these types of suitcases seem far more suited for checked baggage than carry ons.
One plus to the hardsided bag was that it served as a great stand for my purse and stood much more easily in all situations than other soft-sided bags I have.
