Essential Plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin is essential for any WP site.

Great plugin, admin popup is awful
By ,

Plugin seems to work well, but admin plugin is very aggressive. I can't seem to get rid of it.

w3 total cache is cool
By , for WP 3.9.1

Best cache plugin.

Good but not for all servers
By , for WP 3.9.1

Very Good.
I noticed instant speed improvement with this plugin.
although it didn't do so well on my other servers.
You must release a standard configuration for novice wordpress users,
sometime all the options can become overwhelming.

kill the pop-up
By , for WP 3.9.1

would be 5 starts without the pop-up
I like it. I understand the need to have people support the plugin - but the pop-up may drive me away.

I tried to open it up - pop-up appears. Can't get out of it. Even tried to do what it asked. Tried reloading the page twice - popup box goes blank. deactivated and deleated. reinstalled. the popup is back. agrred to do a review. this one. If when I go back to my site it doesn't let me work I'm done.

Great plugin, missing easy cache clearing
By , for WP 3.9.1

It's an awesome plugin, works great, but it lacks an easy way to easily clear cache.

Works for me
By , for WP 3.9.1

Seems to work OK, just testing it, has a lot of features, which is good.

Thanks for this

Very solid
By , for WP 3.9.1

We have used this on a variety of our sites for a long time. very good. reliable.

Worth the Work
By , for WP 3.9.1

Considerable amount of time should go into tweaking the many settings, especially when used in conjunction with a CDN (Amazon Cloudfront is my choice).

Does not play well with some other popular plugins, so working around those conflicts may be on your plate, too. (BTW, there is a nifty plugin that lets you reorder plugin load sequences very easily that has helped me a lot.)

Once you work through these issues, your WP will really rip. I have had impressive gains across the board, and my GTMetrix score is now 98/95.
