    If you subscribe to autoresponders, you can paste opt in form HTML code in HTML widget.

    I always used G-Lock when necessary because it was (one of) the first. But now I also saw WP-Optin and Newsletter Plugin in the search results, which I've never used.

    I usually sort the search result set on "Recently updated", so that I don't waste my time on abandoned plugins. Anything not updated in the past 1+ year is either terribly stable and mature, or abandoned.
    You can also check the WP.org forum for that specific plugin, or the author's webpage, for problem reports. And of course the plugin's update history.

    Then at least tell the OP and us why you think it's better than the others, or even the best ever.
