We have used MUS this year and purchased it for next year. I have two boys and will be starting the primer with my daughter. As far as Pros vs Cons, I'd say the MUS is very repetitive. It's easy to teach and if you follow the video and teach it their way (build, say, write), the concepts fall into place with ease. I like the way it relates to algebra and upper level math. We really can take it to high school. The Cons are that it's not very colorful. There are manipulatives, but not a variety like some programs. Just the blocks. Also, the price is steep. The nice thing is that if you are using it with multiple children, you only have to buy the student pack the second time around.

I think you have to evaluate it from a child perspective. If you have boys, there are studies that say colorful pages and lots of manipulatives are distracting. For girls who aren't very motivated in math, I think the color and variety of tools is helpful.
