ACF does not have custom database tables. We did an extensive test with load on changing a term on a woocommerce product CPT with custom fields. With ACF it took 15 minutes and with metabox their custom database tables it was less than 20 seconds!!!! Highly recommend metabox. Their team is amazing, great support. Never going to leave this tool.

Great plugin, easy to use, been a fan for years. Unfortunately, as of WP 6.4, this plugin breaks the ability to preview posts. I’d amend this review with a higher score once that’s fixed, but it’s a major problem.

Compared to the competition, the design and extensibility of this plugin is significantly better. Its performance is better and it doesn’t suffer from code bloat. Its learning curve is a bit steep, however that is what really sets it apart from the others. The support team is pretty responsive with tickets and the documentation is pretty good! I’ll be using the pro version of plugin going forward for custom setups. Cheers~

The more I use MetaBox the more I see it can do so much more than I thought. They are also constantly releasing real life training examples, which is very helpful. Plus lots of documentation. Thanks so much for the hard work and effort you put in.

I tried Metabox because of its custom table feature, but I’ve been utilizing ACF. Everything operates without a hitch, and the documentation for configuring custom fields is excellent.
