Hides in Plain Sight
This hamper was perfect for our tiny bedroom. You can see it from our living room when the bedroom door is open and most people don't even realize it's a hamper. I'd say it can hold 3-4 loads of laundry (in a top loading machine) if you smash the clothes down. The handles on the sides make it easy to move from the bedroom to the laundry room and the cover allows it to slide easily on carpet and hardwood floors without snagging or scratching. We've had ours for seven years and it's still in great shape.

Not for carrying up stairs or for damp things
I really like the look and flexible-sturdiness of this hamper as well as how many clothes it can hold (2 large loads), but there are some things that I don't like about it too after having it for a couple of months:
1) It's tall and at 5'6" I have a really hard time carrying it up and down stairs even half full. My 5'11" husband thinks it's awkward but can do it more easily.
2) The particle board-like insert at the bottom molded through in a 4" section (green and black fuzziness) after I left something damp at the bottom last week. I feel like a laundry container should use materials that aren't going to do that! Maybe recycled plastic or antimicrobial something? It is now cloroxed and clean and dry but stained and wilty on the edges from getting damp.
If you have a 1 floor house/apartment with a washer & dryer close by, it would be fine to pull around or roll on something. Don't leave anything damp in it at the bottom or you'll have grossness on your hands.

They are great hampers to carry dirty clothes. Also the fact they link together is great.

Okay, not great
I bought both the white and brown hampers. I like that they hold a lot, I like that they don't take up a lot of space. However, the walls are less firm than I would like and they are very tall. I happen to be tall myself, but most people would probably have trouble lugging a full hamper around. And you'd probably have to dump everything on the floor to get to the bottom.
