5.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for
By Paul Cooper on July 16, 2022
These trackers do their job really well. I've been wanting full body tracking for a while to use in VRChat, and have not had any problems with these trackers. Sure they are a little expensive, but the market for trackers like this isn't too big. But after having used these for a while now, I highly recommend them if you want to be sure you're getting a quality, and perfectly functional, tracker.

Also, if you want an alternative to buying $50-$150 worth of premium straps to hold them, you could buy a pair of crocs and a belt (or shoes), and mount them with a few bolts you can pick up from the hardware store. Just buy some short ones that are the standard size for camera mounting. I attached a pic of what I use.

Have fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty expensive, but worth it for the experience with both the Oculus Rift CV1 and Valve Index!
By InfusedWaffle on April 2, 2019
These, albeit pretty expensive and maybe a bit overpriced, were more than worth the money I spent to be able to use them for the experience that they add. While there's not many games that support them, I primarily got 3 of these to be able to use in VRChat for full-body tracking with hip and foot tracking, along with some straps to do so. And wow, I got them with low expectations due to trying a mixed setup of Oculus Rift gear with them, but it's amazing how accurate they actually are. Since I do use an Oculus Rift CV1 as my HMD along with their controllers since I prefer them over the HTC Vive, I did have to buy the HTC Vive Lighthouses separately to be able to use these since Oculus doesn't have their own trackers which added onto the cost a good bit, but I don't regret doing so. The setup for them was very easy through SteamVR, although there is a few extra steps if you use an Oculus HMD and Controllers to get them calibrated in the same space as the Oculus gear, but there are many guides to help with it that will get them working together in no time perfectly! But, if you'd prefer less hassle and ease of use, just use them with an HTC Vive. Also, if you do happen to use an Oculus Rift like me, don’t make the same mistake I did and make sure you have at least 6 free USB ports if you plan on using 3 trackers given you need a port for each tracker, the sensors, and the HMD. I can’t say for sure how many for Vive users but keep in mind that each tracker takes up a USB port as the included dongle with each one needs to be plugged in to one.

*Edit for Oculus users: If you do happen to use these trackers with an Oculus Rift, do keep in mind that there is some interference that can vary whenever the Oculus Touch controllers are held close to the trackers. I hardly get any interference and near perfect tracking, but I know others who get bad interference for some reason even with the 2018 trackers which cause less interference, but it could also depend on lighthouse sensor positioning. Also, if you do happen to touch one of the trackers with an Oculus Touch controller while using them, there is a chance your tracker could ping off in a random direction in virtual space for a few seconds and then shortly after go back to normal, but for me it rarely ever happens. Just a heads up!

*Edit 11/23/2019 for Valve Index users: I upgraded to the Valve Index about two months ago so I thought I might as well go ahead and share my experience using them with that HMD. With the Valve Index, just like with the HTC Vive, it required no setup other than plugging in the dongles and connecting them as a new controller in SteamVR to get them working, it was basically plug and play. These do definitely work a lot better when using them with an HMD that also uses the base stations/lighthouses for tracking since there's no hassle or worry to it. But, I still really enjoyed my mostly flawless experience using them with my Oculus Rift CV1 even if it did take quite a bit of setup to get them working and I would still heavily recommend them for use with it. With a bit of research, I also learned that the trackers can be used similarly with any other VR headset just like the Oculus Rift CV1, so even if you don't own that HMD and own something like a Windows Mixed Reality or Rift S/Quest, you can use the same method for those!
