I'm still saving my pennies to get the KB, but I use Holladay profusely. The
two biggest differences I can see between it and BDB are that Holladay is
more up-to-date and not so loaded down with cognate info that may or may not
be significant; and, I can actually find words in Holladay! BDB's format of
listing everything under triliteral roots drives me bonkers. Except for the
free condensed edition in Logos' software, I never use it because it's too
time-consuming to figure out where they put this or that word, especially
nouns. As always, YMMV.
