Some games have absolutely terrible input lag with V-Sync enabled. It's especially noticeable when characters talk. I try to get by without it.

I rarely, if ever, turn vsync on. Then again, it's hard to hit 120 fps on most modern games if I'm maxing out all settings.

I only use Vsync if I'm getting bad tearing. Otherwise, I let the game run as fast as it can.

I used to just limit my framerate but I've started noticing tearing even then. I just kinda gave up and I've started using it. I don't play many shooters but I haven't any lag in the games I have played.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

There's never a reason not to turn it on. The games always look like ass without it.

sometimes unless I'm playing competitively then definitely no. The 100 fps is better than 60 fps.

I enable it through Nvidia control panel. Hardware forced is often WAY less laggy and crappy than in-game set.

I usually don't turn on VSync.

depends on the game. if my rig is struggling to max out the game, i'll turn it off. If it's running easily maxed, i'll turn it on.
