    Do they play nicely together?

    I was having 403 load error issue with BulletProof Security plugin and the Developer said that it may not be possible to use them together.

    When both are activated I get error on using the Delete Cache button on the Dashboard:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_supercache_dir()in home/xyz/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/wp-cache.php on line 385

    Update: above error disappeared after mod_rewrite update.

    But would appreciate opinion re: plugin compatiblity. So far plugins seem to be working together, after disabling Page Caching on W3TC: producing improvements on page loading times.

    W3TC and Wp-Super-cache are conflicting plugins.

    while you might be able to get them to work together, they are written to try and perform the same core function - cache your site, its not advisable to try and run both together - W3TC is a more thorough approach while WP-super-cache only tackles page caching and cdn offloading really
