The plugin is really a lifesaver when it comes to caching pages and having a fast website! It's a great and easy tool to make use off with all your wordpress installations!

Great plugin, watch closely when using with security plugins
By , for WP 4.1.1

After using this plugin on various sites for years I can say that its not easy to set up, but it does a respectable job of speeding up a site. Right now I'm working out how to use it optimally with Bulletproof Security - much of the W3TC code gets cropped even when adding it to custom code. So watch carefully when using it with security plugins. You'll need to do your own homework, as $75 for less than 15 minutes of email support (and up from there) is outrageous.

Does what it says on the tin

Coupled with a CDN this is magic on slow hosts!

Working good

I paid for $200 for W3 Total Cache Support, but didn't get anything!

Don't pay for any w3tc support packages!

I had the w3tc plugin installed, but it didn't seem to perform as advertised. On 11/10/2014, I used their in-app (in WordPress) purchasing to order their $200 "Linux Server Optimization & Plugin Configuration" service. I received an immediate confirmation of my order (probably an auto-response). On 11/11/2014 I received an email from Willie Jackson [wjackson@w3-edge.com] thanking me for the order and letting me know my work had been scheduled.

Other than those email, I never received anything else from w3-edge. I emailed back asking for status 11/18/2014, 12/6/2014, 12/16/2014. I submitted a ticket in their on-line system on 1/6/2015. Again I received an auto-response, but nothing else.

I suspect there's no legitimate, working support organization at w3-edge.com. On 1/28/2015 I uninstalled w3tc from my WordPress site. I've had no noticeable degradation in performance. In fact, I've measured lower page load times and lower overall server load without it.

Don't install it. And definitely don't pay for any of their in-app support packages.

worst caching plugin ever !!!
By , for WP 4.1.1

It has lots of features but most of them would break my site entirely.
I couldn't even configure it to a stable state.
Worst thing is that it decreased my pageSpeed based on google's pageSpeed insights !!!

don't bother installing it, it's a shining piece of garbage !

O melhor!
