We had been using the Clontech system and recently switched to the
Gibco/BRL kit, and have found it to be a substantial improvement.  It uses
site specific recombination in  E.coli rather than homologous
recombination in insect cells to make the recombinant baculovirus.  This
difference saves time and effort.  The Invitrogen and Pharmingen systems
are similar to Clontech.  So I would give that some consideration.
