    since 1.2 off the market, I've had a few FC's, nothing major.

    I'd suppose it depends on ROM and speed as well.
    Same here. I really like it.

    Using helix 2 on ultimate Droid oced at 1ghz and noticed a slight lag with 3d launcher, initially opening.

    Nope, I just think you fail. I'm on a stock, non-rooted Droid with many, many apps and several widgets on 7 screens and have no noticeable lag compared to the stock launcher.

    Helix FTW.

    I had a lag using Helix 2 so I disabled the auto-rotation which resolved it.

    I didn't like it either. I'm running Ultimate Droid 8.0 with Chevys 1ghz on there and it seemed a tiiiny bit slower, but what really killed it for me was how it looked. Everything on the bottom row looked so crammed together next to the Helix, like the spacing was all off. Probably just my OCD kicking in, but I couldn't deal with it.

    I love the normal Launcher2, if only that ran smooth enough to keep around. Invisible left/right apps on that launcher is all I really need.

    How many widgets and such do you have on your screens?

    Hmm interesting I've never had any problems with HelixLauncher, HelixLauncher2 was kinda iffy for me though it worked but was really slow.

    It's not about overclocking either (IMO) as for a time I was running underclocked @ 400mhz with helix launcher and it was fine o.O;
