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.
