Worked flawlessly, has all the options I need to customize complex sites.

Great Plugin but Upselling PITA
By , for WP 4.2.4

I am thankful for this plugin, it works. However, it has changed to an upselling device: If you are a new WordPress user I strongly suggest finding another cache plugin, this one pops up deliberately confusing and pointless upselling messages while setting it up. And they are persistent.

Had server go down and while working to rebuild site this plugin kept putting mailing list signup screens in front of the work I was trying to do, blocking off the WP admin area. That wasn't enough, when I tried to close them it made me reply to yet another dialogue about leaving the page. If you already aren't completely sure of what you're doing this could put you in a position of feeling forced to sign up.

It also demanded that I stop right in the middle of my work and log into the WordPress site and rate the plugin, so I'm doing that. :^)

I would ask the programmer to reply and describe, in his own words, the kind of person who does that stuff to a user of a plugin they are offering.

Good plugin
By , for WP 4.2.4

It is a good plugin, as it does what it promises. I have used it in many different pages and it works really great. I have only one complain about it: it has way to much ads and messages popping-up everywhere. That's a little bit annoying.

This plugin somehow destroyed access to my site. Front- and backend with 403 Error. Removed all except the standard WP-Settings. Still error. renamed .htaccess to htaccess.txt and I could login again.
T3 has no clean uninstall. Left a folder in wp-content, seems. Uninstall howto. http://goo.gl/zvB4xx
After uninstall I restored the .htaccess and everything works again. Back to WP Super Cache, it doesn't brick sites. &-/

Slowed My Site to a Crawl
By , for WP 4.2.4

I have used W3 for a long time on a number of sites without issue until lately when I noticed some major slowdowns happening in the admin side and the website side.

I ran the P3 Plugin Profiler and found that W3 Total Cache was adding 2.5 seconds to every request! That is insane. Uninstalled immediately.
