anyone here using let's encrypt?

Yes, it's open and safe. The 3 month renewal requirement is actually a security feature. This makes your service less susceptible to vulnerabilities as you will get patched certificates more often than regular long lived certificates. I have seen my fair share of security vulnerabilities being disclosed that affect some of these long lived certificates generated by paid CA's. So prefer short lived certificates so you don't actually have to rely on not missing any news to ensure your services are protected.

Anyone had issues with it?

Yes, when I first started I didn't get automation right. It solves itself once you get to know what you're doing.

Usually there is a reason things are free...limitations and such

Yes, and the reason is a more secure web. Let's Encrypt is a non-profit organization to make security accessible to everyone. It's backed by many of the big corporates: Current Sponsors and Donors - Let's Encrypt - Free SSL/TLS Certificates.

But by being free it means it gets used a lot with a limited amount of budget. The main limitation is that you can only generate 50 certificates per week for a given top level domain. Which in my experience is more than enough for most use cases. See here for more details: Rate Limits - Let's Encrypt - Free SSL/TLS Certificates
