It does what it says, easy to use if used to databases. I did use it in an intallation with lots of user meta and it's behaving really nice.
Also the Exporter add on it's working nicely.
Thanks a lot!

It works!

Working and Great Plugin
By , for WP 4.1.1

Installed the plugin so far no problem, but when i tried to upload my CSV it starts to generate errors etc. for some reason, good thing i read the reviews of this plugin and was able to do some tests which lead me to fix the issue. but finally i got working and its all good now.

what i did.

1) Installed the Plugin
2) Downloaded the csv format from the plugin which has fields etc.
3) never use excel to edit the csv, what i did is i followed @shankie and @jupitercows advice to use OfficeLibre, and viola it worked. pretty good stuff.

Thank you for the plugin, great stuff.

Works perfectly - with one hitch

Works really well - but make sure that you use LibreOffice to save your CSV rather than Excel. That'll save you a half hour of frustration...

good job

Worked out of the box.

The only problem I had was that all first names and last names where terminated at special characters (german umlauts) without any warnings or errors (e.g. "Stöckl" - only "St" was loaded). But this is not the Plugins fault, this is WordPress. After converting the CSV File to UTF-8 this was solved.

Maybe showing a hint that the input file should be UTF-8 encoded would make sense.

Works Well, But Set No Timeout
By , for WP 3.9.2

The plugin works well, but I had to add the following line to the top of import-users-from-csv.php:
set_time_limit(0);

Until I did that, it just timed out. Also, I selected the "Update user when a username or email exists" field when importing. My input file had 164 entries but only 161 were added. When I checked the CSV files, there were indeed three duplicates.

BTW, I'm using WP 3.9.3, but the dropdown when writing this review didn't offer that as an option.

Worked but not without downloading an entirely new app
By , for WP 4.0.1

After following jcow's instructions on downloading LibreOffice I was able to also successfully import users. Excel is useless for this plugin.

Works, but there is some confusion as to how.

It works great, but you have to save it a certain way that I couildn't find in the documentation. Exporting from Excel doesn't work by default. I had to use LibreOffice and use specific settings to make sure each frame is wrapped in quote marks. Then it worked REALLY well. It doesn't work AT ALL otherwise and gives no errors.
