Good but not for all servers
By , for WP 3.9.1

Very Good.
I noticed instant speed improvement with this plugin.
although it didn't do so well on my other servers.
You must release a standard configuration for novice wordpress users,
sometime all the options can become overwhelming.

kill the pop-up
By , for WP 3.9.1

would be 5 starts without the pop-up
I like it. I understand the need to have people support the plugin - but the pop-up may drive me away.

I tried to open it up - pop-up appears. Can't get out of it. Even tried to do what it asked. Tried reloading the page twice - popup box goes blank. deactivated and deleated. reinstalled. the popup is back. agrred to do a review. this one. If when I go back to my site it doesn't let me work I'm done.

Great plugin, missing easy cache clearing

It's an awesome plugin, works great, but it lacks an easy way to easily clear cache.

Worth the Work
By , for WP 3.9.1

Considerable amount of time should go into tweaking the many settings, especially when used in conjunction with a CDN (Amazon Cloudfront is my choice).

Does not play well with some other popular plugins, so working around those conflicts may be on your plate, too. (BTW, there is a nifty plugin that lets you reorder plugin load sequences very easily that has helped me a lot.)

Once you work through these issues, your WP will really rip. I have had impressive gains across the board, and my GTMetrix score is now 98/95.

There's a lot going on with this plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

Seems to work great once you get it configured. That part is what's hard about it. There business model is built around pay for help, so there's probably a reason it's not simple.

Site crashes occasionally

I must be setting something wrong or there must be a conflict with something else...

When it work is it's great., when it doesn't it's still pretty good.
By , for WP 3.9.1

I have mixed feeling about this plugin. When it works it's great, but when it doesn't it can be a colossal pain is the butt. That being said the documentation is decent and the support community is really helpful. It guess bottom line is that this not for people who don't want to get their hands dirty or don't already a lot experience problem solving and fiddling with their server configuration.
