After the release of the original Musketeer, there were some reviewers that bashed it for its lack of "hard" functionality. I think the reviewers that looked at the Musketeer in this manner missed the whole point of its appeal. The same goes for the Musketeer II. No, it doesn't give you a lot of hard data regarding your system's performance, like temperatures or fan speeds. If this is the type of function you want, then are are literally dozens of other options out there. What the M2 offers is targeted much more at the modder than the performance enthusiast. It offers a very unique and attractive look, while still giving the user a perfectly useful array of functions that are quite unique in their own right. I liked the original Musketeer a great deal, and with the changes in functions and the new customizable LED colors, I like the Musketeer II even better.
