Works perfectly - with one hitch
By , for WP 4.1

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...

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.
By , for WP 4.0

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.

Confusing at first, but works well
By , for WP 3.9

The instructions are kind of confusing, and it takes some coding knowledge to figure out how to add your own fields (like if you want to import customer billing and shipping addresses), but once you have all the proper fields, it works very well and very fast.

Did exactly what it meant to do!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Worked great. Didn't allow me to import users with the same email but I got around that with a custom filter:

add_filter('pre_user_email', 'skip_email_exist');
function skip_email_exist($user_email){
define( 'WP_IMPORTING', 'SKIP_EMAIL_EXIST' );
return $user_email;
}
(Source: http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/75565/how-to-use-same-email-for-multiple-users )

It still throws an error but the importing get's done.

Good
