In general, when you have to use a crap load of plugins then something is wrong with your site setup. Maybe a cheap theme that doesn't have any built in functions, or maybe taking the easy way out and using a plugin for the tiniest thing etc etc. And every single plugin will directly affect your site speed and security. Most site are hacked because of outdated or badly coded plugins.

Can't imagine using 35 plugins like the guy above.

It's not necessarily the number of plugins you use that slows down your site, but how well these are coded.

I use personally more than 30 plugins and have a loading time under 2 secs.

So yes, just keep the plugins that are really necessary.

No developer would believe that. How do you know the plugins are well coded? I have done a lot of research about site speed, all the time the answer to my queries is have the minimum number of plugins. But it is your site, you can install as many plugins as you want.

by installing them and use plugins like query monitor and Pingdom to test the resulting speed.

And if you use a CDN, it's even less relevant.

It's always a compromise, I prefer to loose .5 loading time and have to core functionalities I want for my site than just be a speed junkie and having a generic Alidropship store that looks like everybody else.

Hosting plays a big part also. I'm on shared SSD hosting with 1G ram without any problem. A very good one.

O2Switch in France, kinda the equivalent of Siteground in the US.

If your site is slow because you have a bunch of plugins there is something wrong with your hosting. ;-)
If you ask the experts what is slowing down a website, yes hosting is one of many factors, but the very first thing they tell you is too many plugins. If your site is fast now, it could be faster with few plugins.
