Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I recently used the Dakine bike case to ship a 29er round-trip between the east and west coasts. The case's light weight (~18 lbs) saved me some cash on shipping charges, since my hardshell case adds another 20lbs. The Dakine case is also easier to maneuver around the house and yard because of the lighter weight, more compact profile, and smooth roller wheels.
Packing the bike was very easy, and took me less than 20 minutes in prepping the second trip. Simply remove the wheels, handlebars, seatpost/saddle, pedals, and rear derailleur, and stuff all the loose parts into the case's storage bags. One especially nice feature is the padded donuts inside the wheelbags, which help protect disc brake rotors against warping. Once everything's set in the case, you should still have room for helmet, shoes, several sets of kit, and other accessories.
On top of the light weight and user-friendly design, the Dakine case seems to do an adequate job protecting your bike. My bike survived two very long ground shipments, and showed up at it's destination each time in perfect working order. I line the case's front and back panels with backpacking sleepmats for extra cushioning, but that's probably overkill.
