Comes with the dongle, with is currently irreplaceable as it's virtually unavailable for separate purchase everywhere. Don't let your dog eat it! Mount this high for best connectivity, spaced at least a few inches apart if you have multiple. They run on USB2 and I have a single powered usb2 hub supporting 7 of them. According to reports, don't use USB3 cables near these as they may leak radiation that interferes with the tracker's signal.
Only wish for a modestly longer battery life, or easily replaceable batteries. The limitation for that is size and weight, but this device is so light it feels like an empty plastic shell, and could really stand to have a 50-100% larger battery crammed into it.
Protip: Pick up a USB charger and some USB-micro cables at the same time. It comes with a cable but that's for the dongle, so you'll need another own for charging. Plugging them into a small external battery pack in a pocket also works for keeping them alive longer during a VR session.
Another issue is sometimes software is smart enough to know where you've placed the trackers. Sometimes, however, software requires that you define each tracker to a specific location on your body. If you have a number of trackers it becomes tedious to figure out the correct ones for the correct locations, so you may want to label them. A simple LED display on the trackers would have resolved this.
The number of dongles that software supports will vary, but they will support at least three. I recommend purchasing three at max unless you are sure the software you want to use can utilize more of them.
Finally, they are not smart enough to use different dongles on the fly. So you have to make sure to plug in all the dongles to make sure it will see the ones you're using.

Instructions are somewhat confusing, considering you're given an extra USB connector with no explanation of it. I think it's unnecessary? They include it like it's optional, but then don't explain it making me assume it's necessary.
If you have three, you'll need three USB ports, as it doesn't seem like you can connect via a single dongle. USB hub may be necessary.
Too expensive, even considering manufacturing cost and functionality.
If you are still on the fence and you don't need it wait for the alternatives that will soon come out. Otherwise very surreal experience you will fall in love with VR all over again.
