Best cache plugin in the market
By , for WP 3.9.1

I am overly satisfied by the W3 Total Cache Plugin. I believe it is currently the best cache plugin in the market. I would give 5 stars if not for those query strings (yes, I have unchecked "Prevent caching of objects after settings change" and I still get query strings). There are also some other minor problems (eg I get grade C for inline small css), but currently I would like them to fix the query strings issue.

Best for minifying
By , for WP 3.7.1

But still doesn't do everything.

I had to use Head Cleaner to move my Javascript below the page-load.
Otherwise, it caches and does it's magic.

You can check and tweek using Pagespeed insights.
You will need EWWW Image Optimizer.

Working with three of these add-ons combined will give you green ratings on your optimisations for page load times.

Having said all that. Great, but not as great as it could be.

Very feature complete but a bit bloated
By , for WP 3.9.1

It slows down WordPress admin quite a bit, it's kind of bloated, but it does do the job. Performance might not always get better.

Freaking Lot to tweak, but tricky
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin is superb in what it does, but it is tricky to integrate with all it's tweaks and settings.

Worth it
By , for WP 3.9.1

It can take a while to understand all the settings and the UX can be a bit stodgy but its worth persevering with as the results can be fantastic.

Effective plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

I'm monitorizing results using Google PageSpeed and the plugin has fixed some of the site's performance issues. It's not easy to configure, but it produces good results.

Like the plugin
By , for WP 3.8.3

It's a little complicated, but it cuts page speed down quite a bit.

Good plugin
By , for WP 3.9

Good plugin, though a shame you're forced to write a review to be able to use it. Otherwise would have given 5 stars.
