Most hard-sided bags without zips need those luggage straps. We had a huge Delsey bag we used when my husband would have to take several types of uniforms to Germany. No packing light then.

I've never used luggage straps but I did have a popped zipper with clothes fallig out on the baggage carousel at Logan one time. Delta gave me a new suitcase. I had asked for a box. That suitcase was a replacement suitcase that Delta sent me after I reported a crunched wheel in Hawaii. That was in the midst of weekly travel for 9 years. Three suitcases = 2 free from Delta to replace the first one I bought.

If you want a "name" suitcase for status, go for it. But IME the no name suitcases and the $10 Roma carryon that lasted for years have convinced me that I (personally) don't need to spend a lot on a suitcase. YMMV

I like to buy the inexpensive bags because I am always looking for the latest, the lightest, easiest to carry If I spent a lot of $$ I wouldn't want to get a new one.
