The main disadvatage of the user server is speed. It is also possibly not as
well maintained as the kernel server, since it is less popular. To quote
Debian's description:

	 Unlike other NFS daemons, this NFS server runs entirely in user space.
	 This makes it a tad slower than other NFS implementations, and also
	 introduces some awkwardnesses in the semantics (for instance, moving a
	 file to a different directory will render its file handle invalid).  .
	 There is currently no support for file locking.

I have used both sucessfully.
