Simple and Reliable
By , for WP 4.5.3

I don't know why this has so many 1 stars. It works well and the configuration is simple. Yeah, some plugins don't play nice with it, but it is the other plugins fault. I have used this plugin flawlessly for years. My only complaint is their Pro version pricing by number of assets. I, personally, would not buy that. Ideally, I'd like to see a only time fee to upgrade Lite to Pro, but I'm sure that won't happen given their existing model. But that's okay, because this plugin rocks! Also, it would be cool if you could just pay a fee to enable WooCommerce support.

Dreamy so far
By , for WP 4.5.3

This plugin is seriously dreamy so far! We've had over 3 GB of images over the course of 6 years of blogging and this sent all images over the s3 and is pulling from there!

We are still experimenting with it on our dev site and will make it live next week.

The only bummer is being "maxed out" at certain levels and having to upgrade to the next level.

Good job making this plugin!

I love your plugin
By , for WP 4.5.2

Good Plugin for my site but when my site have over 250.000 file how about speed load?

The best way to store assets in WordPress? Don't!
By , for WP 4.4.2

I use Git to develop and deploy WordPress sites. I also usually keep all of a site's assets inside of Git for smaller sites, as this adds another layer of backups. However, when a site starts getting a large number of image-heavy updates, it's time to move the images and uploads out of WordPress and onto something like Amazon S3. This plugin makes it easy and painless. As for the paid version? Just go for it. The time you'll save yourself is worth a lot more than what's being charged here. Really solid stuff.

faultless
By , for WP 4.4.2

I want to fault it, because I am convinced this can be done easily with some simple code.. but its free... and its been faultless, and actually contrary to my concerns.. its easy. My concerns seem to be about ownership and scale once my users start adding content to their profiles.I thought the pro price excessive, but if i make the money, then.. hmmm.. Im working through my psychological issues obviously. My problem is that it works beautifully.

Very Solid Plugin
By , for WP 4.4.2

I've been using this plugin in a handful of websites for a couple of years now and I can speak highly enough of it. I build church websites, which tend to include a lot of media. This plugin allows me to do backups efficiently because all of the content isn't on my server. Thanks Brad & team for a solid plugin.

Fantastic - transparent functionality
By , for WP 4.4

I am very impressed with this plugin, using with its companion Amazon Web Services plugin. I like how they are transparent - you don't even realize it is there and behaves as if you were saving everything locally. There have been a few bugs here and there, but the team addresses them quickly.

Best S3 plugin avaialble
By ,

We're using this plugin on our company blog. It's perfect!

Smooth
By , for WP 4.1.1

It's straightforward, clean and a breeze to install and set-up.

There's plenty of information about S3 and CloudFront online (in general; or via AWS itself).

I'm glad development for this had continued (from the previous iterations), and especially because this time it's looking like it's for the long haul. Please keep up the fine work.

Wonderful plugin with potential improvement
By , for WP 4.1.1

The plugin works great. I am looking forward to the pro version. It is incredible to see the media urls change automatically

The only issue that I faced was that there is no documentation on how to Setup AWS so that the plugin works. There are a few blog posts so it is not impossible.

The only small complaint is the "blank" settings page once the AWS access keys have been added.
