What is the best kit for extracting bacterial DNA for NGS applications?

A myriad of commercial kits are available for extraction of bacterial DNA. These kits are typically tested by the kit suppliers and scientific literature comparing different commercial kits is very limited. However, there are exceptions: this article compared six commercial kits to extract bacterial chromosome and plasmid DNA for MiSeq sequencing.

Accordingly to the article, Masterpure provides the cheapest and fastest completion/hands-on-time of the kits compared.
“In cases where a differential coverage of smaller plasmids (under 5 kb in our case) may be considered negligible, the choice of DNA extraction kit can be guided largely by other factors including extraction costs, extraction time and potential for automation.”
