Quite impressed
By , for WP 4.3

Impressed by all the options, specially the 'HTML Markup settings' (which allows you to add your own layout) and all the parameters available

Spectacular Support
By , for WP 4.2.3

Intelligent plugin with plenty of options, but above all, support from the plugin creator was spectacular.

Features for caching, data sampling and ajax, to aid performance
By , for WP 4.2.4

This plugin is pretty good, and I've compared it to an affiliate plugin we use on an eCommerce site that effectively does the same thing with tracking hits on products.

However, that affiliate plugin sucks! It has records from two years ago that take up 230,000 rows in the database.

I found out that WordPress Popular Posts has built-in features to handle this, data sampling. And you can get better performance (with some tradeoffs) using caching and ajax.

The developer seems to be very eager to help people using the plugin, and improve the plugin itself.

Thanks for the great plugin Hector!

Do not install this plugin
By , for WP 4.2.3

Do not install this plugin, I assure you that ultimately will generate tremendous headache. Just what I had to uninstall months by the load generating my server, then to expect a new update comes out the same thing happened a few days ago, and today I wanted to try back thinking that this would solve the problem, but I came across that was worse where even had to get to the case of using the entire Altushost support for a possible solution since virtually stopped dead server after working hours of waiting and told them that if they enter my panel eliminate popular wordpress plugin post and guess what happened? It was the same plugin that caused the terrible mess in the whole service. So from my point of view I would not recommend to install it on their pages.

Despite all very good job creator because it has served me well for months or years talves.

The best
By , for WP 4.2.3

We're very impressed with this plugin. Easy to use, and just works. Well done, Hector.

Feature request: offset ... so we can spit out the top 5 popular posts, and then some content, and then the next 5 popular posts ...

I would rate it 6 stars!

It works as it should do !!! And with some litte enhancement of the css the widget fits perfectly to my Theme. Thanks for the quick support for changing the css!!!

Counting accuracy
By , for WP 3.2.1

Great job!, however...
It seems to me that unlike standard WP posts visit counter this plugin does not exclude blog owners from counting which distorts the results.
