I tried a few paniers before settling on this. Really i bought it because the price ($25) was right, but I actually like it quite a bit. the attachment system works well- though there is no bottom attachment to protect agains "bounce off" the hooks fully surround the bar of the bike rack and seem to latch on well. I have used it all week on a 5mile commute over some serious potholes and all good so far. It does sit higher than I prefer (it sticks up about 6 inches above my rack) and it takes some fanangaling to put on and off my rack (but that is because I have a super narrow rack and some of the rack hardware gets in the way- not a problem I think most people will have!)
I fit my old 17inch laptop, a three ring binder, two 20oz drinking vessels, and a change of shirt in here no problem.
It is stiff- in a good way. It holds it's own shape and will likely never flop into the spokes! The tradeoff for this is it feels kind of heavy even when empty.
Another thing i like about it is that it looks totally normal when I'm carrying it around at work, not like I'm about to leave on a bike tour straight from the office.
The neoprene sleeve for the laptop is pretty lame though- if that is selling point for you don't get your hopes up too high.
