The free ones are a great way to get started but I go straight to a commercial site if I'm in a hurry and don't have time to sift through the crap.  I've found www.justincasebriefs.com to be good...the audio sites are cool but I take it in a little better if I'm able to download or print a brief out.  Whatever works...

If it's just a text brief you want, why not just use Lexis or Westlaw?  They are easy to find and free.  http://www.audiocasebook.com/ is meant for listening in your car or at the gym when you can't read.

First, not all universities provide access to Lexis or Westlaw. Second, these sights are for legal research not for in-class case brief study aids.

Most students purchase suppl. study aids to assist in their studies, and justincasebriefs.com is a source I have found useful because of the quality and the fact that you case purchase individual cases.[

Yes, all schools offer westlaw/lexis, but some make you wait.

They are NOT just for "research" as someone said.  The case briefs on lexis almost always address the issue that your prof will focus on.  If you use them as you're supposed to use canned briefs, as supplements to the assigned material, they're perfectly fine, and easy enough to add additional info to.  They are not useful as a substitute for the reading, but that's really not the point of any study aid.

Finally, there is a board for advertising and products.  This crap belongs there.
