Yes, screen tearing sucks.

Always off, can't stand the input lag.

I almost never use Vsync. Too much latency.

Normally no. Vsync makes the game feel...weird on a lot of games. Clunky, input laggy.

I just use nvidia's adaptive vsync.
And if you hear as the warm night falls. The silver sound from a time so strange. Sing to me, sing to me.

Vsync doesn't put that much input lag when the graphic card is strong enough. When it's weak it can be troublesome.

Huh, I did not know that. I guess that explains why playing shooters with vsync on is almost always unbearable to me (GTX 460).

Vsync gets rid of tearing, no matter what your framerate is.

If you're playing a game, and you're only getting 40 fps - you can still have tearing, and vsync gets rid of that.
