Need to Mature
By , for WP 3.9.1

Apart from all the positive reviews, this plugin (free version) did not solved my problem (restrict posts, pages and categories by user/groups). I consider it a basic function for any called "access manager". Hiding the panel is cool, but just a feature, not an main function. The plugin admin interface is kinda confuse. Anyway thanks for the effort, but the free version needs to get better.

Plugin from hell
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is the plugin from hell. I installed it, it removed my plugins section (I get "access denied" for mysite\wp-admin\plugins.php)now I can't remove the thing not add/modify any other plugins. Also did a lot of other weird things. No support from the authors. Site is still working, but to get rid of this piece of crap I'm going to have to basically redo the whole site. Stay away from this thing, I'm sure there are a lot of other user manager plugins available that will not cause you any grief. I give this thing -1stars (tats negative one)

Brilliant!

I know there are quite some permission control plugins around but this one seems to be the prime one.

One of my most-installed plugins.
By , for WP 3.9.1

At the start of every WordPress project I install a standard set of tried and tested plugins that I'd struggle to replace. This is one of them.

Poor Support
By , for WP 3.9.1

Support is poor. An update included changes in hooks, which affected the capabilities. Upon contacting support, Vasyl told me it requires too much work to fix the bug in his own plugin, but yet tried to tell me to buy premium. He also referred to it as a "weird" caching problem with W3TC, when it's not. The plugin path is excluded from W3TC. This is a straightforward issue with the hook. He also wants to dismiss it because I'm the only one so far who's told him of this issue. Perhaps I'm the only one who's contacted him so far, who uses the plugin in the way I do, and is experiencing this issue. Terribly dismissive and washed his hands of it.

Disapointed
By , for WP 3.8.1

The tool looks very nice, it might take time to fine tune all of that but capabilities are strong.

BUT I was actually unable to keep this plugin installed : I lost Admin role ! :-/

I saw a workaround but it seems that it will not work every time... I do not understand php and this workaround is not for me.
I hope there will be a fix soon, then please let me know, I would be glad to test.

Another point that should be changed : when you create a now profile, you do not have access to admin menu options, I do not understand why - it would be useful to define minimum admin access for day to day work.
