I don't think I can go wrong with Samsonite, but looking for advice on luggage with "spinner" wheels versus traditional two wheels.  The way luggage gets bounced around at the airport and on a plane, the "spinner" wheels seem like a target to get broken easily.

So which type should I choose?

I've got a Samsonite hardshell carryon with the spinner wheels.  It's perfect.  It's a hardshell, so I can overstuff it and still be assured that it will fit in the overhead bin, it seems to be nearly indestructible, and pulling / pushing it through an airport seems to take no effort at all.  The couple of times that I've checked it, it has come through without a problem.

We have Tumi stuff, seems to be lasting quite well. I would highly suggest any color but black
