Better than W3 total cache
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin is simpler and safer than W3 total cache.
Although I like minification, object and database cache, extended CDN support which w3tc offers but those are simply overwhelming for a shared hosted site. So I highly recommend using WP Super Cache on shared hosts.

Caused Problems
By , for WP 4.2.2

I am not the original admin for the site I am working on. We changed themes, and many pages kept coming up with the old theme. It took me a couple hours to track it down to this cache plugin. Found out there were probably 10's of thousands of pages in the cache, many, many had to have been expired, but they were just sitting there. A cache tool that doesn't clean up after itself and have a few simple rules for how much can be in the cache at any one time is next to useless.

Breaks .htaccess on uninstall
By , for WP 4.2.2

Please update the uninstallation documentation. Just had a whole host of 404s because a few lines were taken out of the .htaccess file. After a few seconds of googleing, discovered that this is a very very well known problem. Yet a problem that people only discover after they uninstall!

Great Support
By , for WP 4.2.2

I've used WP Super Cache in the past on client sites and it's a fine caching plugin, but it's not my favorite these days. However, the team behind it fixed a bug that was causing compatibility issues with my plugin less than a day after I reported it. That's what I call support! Thanks!

My Site Crashed after Using this
By , for WP 4.2.2

I downloaded this plugin as its been coming first in the list on the plugin page. After installing this my site got crashed. I was not even able to access the admin panel. Fortunately, I deleted through my hosting and my site started working :)

This plug-in broke my site
By , for WP 4.2.2

The title says it all. I downloaded the plug-in, installed it, and my site immediately crashed. I can't even access my admin page. Even deleting the files via FTP is not helping. I have no idea what to do. I would not use this plug-in!

Greate plugin
By , for WP 4.1.1

Nice and excellent plugin . Easy to use and thanks for nice documentations.

effects wp admin. Just garbage.
By , for WP 4.2.1

Caches site, which is not rare. But also makes your wp-admin disappear.
FTP into your site and delete the shitty plugin.

couple of things to fix/add prior
By ,

if you are using cloudflare, you have to uncheck minify HTML, otherwise you get timestamp errors.

also, if you are using custom htacess and mod_rewrite, wp-cache will throw their code, willy nilly in there. I like a tidy commented htaccess because I am not that good at it and its nice to have comments to know what does which.

the mod_rewrite will really speed up vs php- but the htacess issue for me it didnt work at all and blew out my site, it wouldn't load after a couple hours. you may get different results.

Best ever
