Unless we 'know' why are we taking certain protein shakes and understand the different products that are out on the market personally I would say do a little more research before you just start drinking them and thinking they'll do some magic work on reshaping your body to look like the promo girls.
If taking protein shakes to help lose weight then they need to be ones that also cover our other nutritional needs.
Additionally we need to equate the kj's of those shakes into our total food intake for the day. Its all ... Input vs Output ... and while I found meal replacement shakes have helped wonderfully to get rid of those extra kg's there is still a lot of other supports our body needs.
And traps we can fall into...
If taking the protein shakes to help tone / rebuild muscle then there are varying rules of thought on when is best to take them, and it will depend on what form of exercise we're doing, the duration of the exercise and what minerals / vitamins / nutrients make up the shake.
There are certainly a lot of different shakes out there and I agree with 'kozmo' that some have a good bounce in them and can leave you feeling full and satisfied while using them. Just be careful of what ingredients are doing that.
Yet I am a convert that believes that a lot of these products do and can have a place in our diets - if necessary - to help us achieve our goals. Read more about Protein shake

Just before Christmas I discovered a rather large lump (1cm x 3cm) in my left breast.
At 40 I haven't had a mammogram before but made an appointment straight away.
They gave me an 'all clear' with a 'it doesn't look like anything to be worried about', 'it just looks like a solid bit of tissue mass', 'doesn't look like a cyst'
The damn thing got a lot bigger last week, but now my period has come it seems to have settled down... but it makes me worry.
Anyone else got some experience here?
