msp430 uC's are designed for low power and ultra low power systems and seem to be very good in that. Last experience i had with them was 2 years ago when development tools were not mature enough (or my univ couldn'd afford good ones). It's a good uC but probably only as good as the engineer who designs with it ;-).

MSP430 chips is low cost, low power, fast, good peripheral controllers (timers, Uarts (SPI), ADC, watchdog) ....
For MSP430 is available good C compiller with incircuit (very simple JTAG dongle) programmer and debugger.

MSP430 are very good microcontrololers. The only limit is memory. The biggest one have 60kB FLASH and 2kB RAM. If many applications, this is not enough....
