Is a problem based learning (PBL) course better than a traditional course?

I'm on a PBL course, but I can't help but wander what the more traditional courses are like and whether the students get better, more complete teaching?

My friend is at at Bristol which is 9-5 lectures for most of the first 2 years. This is more teaching than I get. Does anyone have any opinions or answers to this?
