This is the perfect plugin if: Memcached is enabled on your hosting server and you want to use only one plugin to handle page as well as persistent object caching; and you require a light-weight caching plugin that is easy to set up in minutes instead of hours and still give good page scores. The dashboard is neat and a pleasure to navigate. Just be sure to check your site at each step, especially when you enable the "Combine CSS files" and "Combine JavaScript Files" options. In our case, enabling "Combine JavaScript Files" prevented a lightbox plugin from working properly. Support on this plugin is excellent.

Easy to setup and very powerful cache plugin. Settings tabs are grouped accurately and you can find what you need in a few seconds. Works great with Redis. Free version has all enough features to get started with. (the most important features are in the free version - which should be appreciated, IMHO) Idea & Wish: - would be great if to add disk-based object caching in the future. (for those who don't have Redis/Memcached) - wish you will keep simplicity/liteweight approach. more features != better product. - wish you to continue supporting and improving the plugin so that it will become one of the most popular cache plugins in 1-2 years.

Powered Cache is simply the best caching plugin for Wordpress. It is easy to set up, it is faster than most of its competitors, and the support is very kind and helpful. The plugin supports many advanced features like object caching (Memcache), page preloading, separate mobile caching, async cache cleaning, and preconnecting. It is very clean and lightweight without any bloat features, and offers all this in a one single package. Overall, it is a great caching plugin, and I'm surprised that it isn't as popular as some other premium caching plugins that offer less features.

Very fast plugin. I've tested several plugins, including premium versions, and this one is just too fast. The caching system makes a difference and this one is the best in my opinion.

Powered Cache is one of the best cache plugins, IMO. It has all of the key features every cache plugins should have and great extra features such as object cache drop-in, varnish extension, WP-CLI commands. I also think it has well written, secure and developer friendly code base.
