Format: Paperback
I have Roitt's Immunology and Janeway's Immunobiology at my disposal as well, but neither presents material as simply and clearly as Kuby Immunology.
The strength of the book is largely in the fantastic illustrations. The generic illustrations supplemented with large blocks of staid text one finds in other immunology books can't even begin to compare. Concentrated study of the figures in this book elucidates many concepts that seem difficult to describe otherwise.
Additionally, the book is divided up into many short chapters on subjects like B and T cell maturation, hypersensitivity, the T-cell receptor, etc. The superb organization is logical and easy to follow, making review and independent study a pleasure.
There's certainly more advanced books on specific topics, but Kuby Immunology is a great starter and basic reference.

This text is a required reading at UC Berkeley - it is very thorough and detailed oriented. It has come complexities as well, thus a course in Biochemistry/Org.Chem and/or Genetics can be helpful. I highly recommend it to anyone who wish to study advance Immuno first hand.

It is the second time around that I am reading Janis Kuby's Immunology. The first time was as a grad student and then I had to actually learn it all. Now as a scientist I am re-reading it to remind myself of forgotten wisdoms. I must admit that the second reading is much more fun. Firstly because I don't really have to remember all the particulars and secondly because the chronological order of the experiments gives great insight into the history of immunology as a discipline.
I realize that this is probably not what grad students are looking for, but I find it a very interesting (re)read.

Before enrolling in my immunology class, I checked the reviews for the textbook (Kuby). The majority were favorable, so I ignored the few low ratings. Big mistake!
The reason for 2 stars instead of 1 is that the diagrams and figures are well done. The text, however, is rambling, disorganized, and sometimes even contradictory. The review questions at the end of the chapters sometimes ask things not in the text, and other times the answers provided at the back of the book contradict the information in the chapter. Which is correct? It is up to you to go hunt down that information, which is not an efficient use of your study time.
My other complaint is that the science is often presented as a history lesson, which adds unnecessary length to the text. While it is somewhat interesting to know when discoveries were made and how the theory has evolved over time, this is rarely the best way to learn a subject.
As a caveat, I have no experience with any other immunology textbook, so I do not know how this one would compare.

Format: Paperback
This book provides a good basic over view of immunology. As with all science text/reference books it is out of date the second it is publish. However, for a senior/grad level class it is good. I use this book as a starting point whenever there is an immunology topic of discussion. Any details beyond over view can be found doing other types of searches.
