Worked very well
By , for WP 3.9.1

Worked well for the most part. I just couldn't get the gallery to center in the page, even though it was inside of centered paragraph tags, but whatever...minor thing which cost it the 5 star rating. Was way better and easier than other free gallery plug-ins, that's for sure.

More hassle than it's worth
By , for WP 3.9.1

Keeps breaking time after time. Every update seems to break it again. Support from the author is very rare. Not worth the hassle. Who would use a plug-in that just causes hassle and upset? Not me anymore.

Was a GREAT pugin before 2.0
By ,

I loved using this plugin on my sites, but since the 2.0 update and subsequent updates, it has really sucked and I HATE my galleries. I'm now looking for a different way to display photo galleries.

Many thanks to @edanzer for his help correcting my issues. I still feel the plugin is far less intuitive than older versions, but finally for the first time since July 2013, I feel satisfied with how my galleries look.

Pro purchase - bad support - bad performance
By , for WP 3.8.3

I was a huge fan before Photocrati bought it and re-wrote the core. Now the performance drags down all pages. Even pages that do not have photos, galleries or NextGen widgets show really poor performance.

My client's web host has had to shut down our account for over use of shared resources. When we ran performance analyzer, NextGen libraries accounted for more than 55% of the resource usage on the homepage, where we weren't using anything NextGen.

Now that I've spent money to buy the Pro Version, I'm regretting it. I'm now searching for a really good replacement. Something that works like the original NextGen used to, before all the Photocrati tinkering and excuses.
