I have two Yongnuo RF-602 transmitters and six receivers - plenty of backup. I bought before the newer RF-603 became available. The receivers came with the LS-02/3.5 Connection cable. I added a LS-02/C3 Shutter Release Cable so I can use one of the receivers to remotely trigger my camera as well as fire my strobes.

The newer RF-603's are transceivers so you only need one type. They do NOT come with connection cables. You will need to buy the cables to connect the transceivers to your strobes and camera.

I have been very happy with the Yongnuo triggers. The only problem is that when the receiver batteries are nearly exhausted the trigger starts firing the attached strobe as fast as it can partially recharge. That is cured by simply replacing the batteries. I use Eneloop AAA batteries with no problems.
