Easy to use.

Good but know what you're getting into.

Does a lot of different cache techniques. Some of which may conflict with your editing of the site. Also can change some deep level settings of WordPress. Know what you're getting into when you install this plugin. Great overall.

It's really good and a must have plug-in, but you can have troubles with minifier if you use banners or other javascript based app on your page.

Working On Multisite

I really like this plugin! It works great on our multisite configurations with some tweaking. Only the minify settings cause issues with our site, so we have to disable this in the settings and manually optimize the css and js files:{ Other than that, It's still the best plugin caching plugin in my opinion.

Works well

I used to use this a lot and it worked well. I've disabled it at the moment as I need to tweak it. Biggest negative is it;s complexity

This plugin can be quite effective. My sites were completely sluggish until I started getting control of caching and compression issues. Unfortunately, it is easy to go off the rails with all the possible settings. I had to watch a few third party videos on configuring the plugin until I was able to settle on the proper settings for me. At one point, I had actually made things far worse. It was crawling on the back and front ends of my site. I made some changes and suddenly my load times were under 2 seconds. So proceed with caution.
