I'm sure it works well, but I do wonder whether these kits help with
the research work or just let people who don't know what they doing to
get by.  I personally would not use something like TOPO cloning kit,
primarily because the cloning method I use works well (haven't any
cloning problem yet after many years), and also because it is
expensive and not really easier for my purposes.  Although if I do
come across something really difficult to clone I might consider using
