Buy, three or four sensor?

I ask those who use 3 or 4 sensors.
From 3 sensors to 4 is there really a difference?
Or already with 3 is everything stable?

Thank you

    3 is optimal, I have no issues, 4 is max and it requires more processing power, I would stick with 3.

    4 and happy I did it. It fixed the dead spot in the corner where there is no sensor. My sensors are 4 by 5 meters apart.

    I just got my 3rd sensor and I have a 12x12 VR space. Looking forward to playing some games I had on hold, like Mages Tale and Lone Echo.

    Haven't you played lone echo yet?!!! ok, I'm banning you until you do. 

    There are moments where you will want to sit down during the later stages of the game and pretend you are in a tiny jet powered chair. Youll knows what I mean.

    I played Echo Arena! But I held off on Lone Echo until I had the 3rd sensor. When I bought Mage's Tale I stopped playing it after a few hours because I wanted that 3rd sensor.

    I'm a bit late to the 3-sensor party, but I had a huge backlog that could be completed with just 2 front-facing sensors. I ordered the 3rd finally after beating From Other Suns, because I really could have used it there. I just can't squeeze any more juice out of these 2 front-facing sensors anymore lol

    4 sensors, all on usb 3.0, just to be a pimp :p
    if 6 would work i would do that also, just because of reasons
    This is my forum signature.
    There are many others like it, but this is mine.

    Thank you so much to all.

    From your answers I understand that 3 to 4 sensors does not change much.
    I will do some tests and then report back to you my feedback

    Same, more would be awesome for me:)

    As far as testing goes ibernet, I used to have 3 and it work really well. 4 is great if you have any dead spots in your room/play area. I find myself turning around a lot in VR and as a result I did run into my dead area a lot when I had 3. With that said, if you have a weird shape room/play area than I would recommend 4 otherwise 3 is more than enough.
