    There is a hair of a lag when going back to home screen as it refreshes. Nothing bad, but if you pay attention its noticeable.

    I had the Droid X one for about a week. Had a bit of a lag sometimes, but nothing too bad.

    Used the water and mario ones for a few hours.

    I used galactic core, worked fine just eats up your battery so I chose a still galaxy instead.

    I've used the fireworks one and didn't notice much of a lag. I think the live wallpapers are cool!

    There is a little bit of lag, but that's normal with live wallpaper. Anybody that says that's an issue is wrong.

    I use the digital rain and I barely notice any lag, more like the wallpaper just restarts when going to the home screen

    The only issue I'm worried about is the slight battery drain.

    I never saw a real battery drain or noticeable lag while using a live wallpaper.

    I see little to no lag and any battery drain is minimal, IMHO. I use the rotating earth one and what's fun about that wallpaper is you can change it to pretty much any existing planet or those in moviedom...like either death star or Pandora.

    Just downloaded digital rain, I think it's a better live wall paper than the matrix live one. Cheers!

    It depends on which one you use, some are more harsh than others.

    Find something light that still looks good like starfield ...sometimes its a little lag but not enough to bother me.

    I love using the live wallpapers and have not had any issues or noticeable lag in the phone.

    A good test to see the lag, you should download something from the market and while its downloading open some apps and keep going back to the homescreen. I get a lot of lag when I do that. It doesn't happen all the time but I have seen it a few times. The live wallpaper will slow down and the phone will become unresponsive.

    I use Earth Rotation for a couple weeks now. Love it. The real time day night and image refresh is amazing. I loved watching hurricane Alex's progress every time I looked at my phone. No real lag and as far as I'm concerned you're not really enjoying your phone without live wallpaper.

    No issues with live wallpapers. I used the Silhouette live wallpaper and it didn't create a lag or drain the battery whatsoever.
