mod pagespeed - any use lately or recommend?

Stumbled upon mod_pagespeed today after not looking at it since it shortly came out. Anyone use this lately and have good results? I still see conflicting reports, but it has been 3 years (?) now since it was first put out.

There are certainly a few things that interest me that would make life a little easier like auto minify, combining, image optimization, etc. rather than doing all those on build/publish.

I would like to think I have everything done up pretty well manually including caching (usually scoring 98/100 or around on pagespeed tests and similar), but like I said this would be more of a time saver if anything.

Just wondering some of your thoughts of this module as of late if anyone is using it.

I use it but only for a limited set of rules such as removing excess white space and comments from HTML.

Most of the things it handles like image sprite I've manually done so there's no server overhead from mod_pagespeed doing it. To me it's worth the time spent to manually optimize.

If you're scoring 98/100 I wouldn't bother, that's damn good and don't think mod_pagespeed will improve it based on my experience with it (been using it for about a year and tested many settings).

Thanks for the input - guess I will just keep the manual method going.
