You will need to buy a Bluetooth 4.0 adapter. Microsoft recommends Plugable USB Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy Micro Adapter [amazon.com]

You also need to be using a HDMI 2.0 port, so anyone with older GPUs need to buy a Display Port to HDMI 2.0 adapter [amazon.com]. with out this the headset will only run at 60hz and not 90hz.

If needed get 6ft. USB 3.0 extension + HDMI 2.0 extension, as 10ft may or may not work. anything longer than 10ft. will not work.

If you need replacement face covers you can buy them from VRCover website [vrcover.com]. VRCover for WMR [amazon.com]

I picked one of these headsets up from bby a week ago and I'm shocked at how well it works. The tracking and controls work surprisingly well. At minimum I'd say as good as psvr if not better because of the controllers. I was able to play fallout VR without any issues. There is software to make it work well with the oculus store as well. I've owned a psvr and used oculus quite a bit and it was a good option to get if you don't want to go as in depth and have the sensors.

WMR: Cheaper, higher resolution, easier to set up (no tracking stations)
Rift: Larger "sweet spot" (area that is in perfect focus), better controller tracking, better controllers, lighter headset.

It was close but I decided on the Rift mainly because of the controllers and tracking. I wanted to play Skyrim VR and SuperHot VR - looked up info on forums and there were complaints about the WMR controllers losing tracking when they are not in front of the headset (pulling a bow string all the way to your shoulder, shooting spells/guns in opposite directions, etc).

That said, WMR users seem happy and enjoy the higher resolution.

I feel like the WMR headsets get a bad rap. Even though the controllers don't track as well out of view like headsets with dedicated cameras (Oculus, Vive) you're still getting a quality VR headset with controllers at a very affordable price. I've been using my Dell Visor since last October with little to no issues. If you have the rig to run VR at 90Hz and are even a little bit interested in VR you should take the plunge.

I also recommend getting some rechargable AA batteries (I'm using Eneloop Pro). The controllers eat batteries like crazy.

Very unlikely considering these are the minimum specs

You're still going to want a decent GPU for anything graphically intensive but you might be able to do videos and stuff

I have to agree. I have a Vive and recently bought the Lenovo Explorer when it was on sale for $200. The Vive IPD just didn't work well for me, and while the Lenovo isn't quite as good on some aspects (less apparent FOV, build quality is lesser than the Vive) it is totally fine. I'm selling the Vive just because I'm tired of the setup time when I share it with friends. WMR is surprisingly good.

Those are refurbished by seller AKA used. Why would you pick used over new just for $40. Having a warranty is worth that.
