This plugin was great at first blush. Fairly easy to use, etc. And it's free. Perhaps the best feature is the ability to notice duplicate posts and remove them from display. Alas I had to switch because of the following problems:
- not responsive, at all, and will break responsive layouts
- no thumbnail cropping. Your thumbnail is resized but no option to crop to specified size.
- inconsistent layout in multiple columns - the channel between columns was different for each row, and this gets noticeably pretty quickly.
If you don't care about mobile, don't need cropping on your featured photos, and don't mind working around the columns issue, this will get the job done.
