    I tried Apex. Liked a lot of things about it. I noticed my battery life seemed to be a lot better, although this may have been due to not syncing as much? I feel my use was similar though. Apex was just choppy. I don't like choppy. I want the smoothest this phone can offer and so far my favorite has been Gummyjar/ Liberty. Anyone have suggestions for other ROM's? Or should I plan on going back to Liberty

    I think Liberty (there's going to be an update this week) and fission are your best bet for light and smooth. ApeX is right up there. If you have AutoKiller, everything's smooth. At least, that's what I experienced. So, it's just you personal preference. :) Enjoy!

    Try Tranquility 3.7. Personally I have never had any problems with Tranq. I just prefer Liberty.

    I liked darkslide 4.2 blurry. Pretty quick and the lockscreen is awesome. No themes really though if your into that.

    Rubix Focused. I've tried every rom out there and always go back to Focused. Drod's mods/tweaks/optimizations are legit.

    +1 for rubiX Focused 1.9.7

    I'm not using any autokillers, task killers, etc. Overclock easy, stable, battery goes forever, no force closes.

    I would also recommend rubiX Blurry 1.8 if you like a little Blur in your life.

    Liberty is truly not only WAY more user friendly for nubs to customize, but its extremely smooth and battery efficient.

    LPP for the launcher with Liberty is beastly.

    + Darkslide. Tried them all. This one works best for me top to bottom....best balance of speed, battery life, stability, etc.

    Any rom is going to be choppy for awhile. Same thing happens if you delete your cache. It takes several hours of use before you can judge smoothness or speed.

    I liked Apex because it had a lot less 'blur' in it than stock.
    I have been on Rubix Focused and this has virtually no blur making me a happy camper.
    I tried the QuckClock app and it made the phone very unstable so turned that off fairly quick.

    I like Android stock, so Rubix is appealing to me.
    That being said, I did like the stock Motorola email client better, since it had push support and the Motorola text messaging bit as well.

    Not to mention in my experience this rom is faster than Apex and way faster than stock.

    I think us stock Android people are in a minority.. I just don't like a lot of bloat, and even Cyanogen on my Nexus has started to bloat a little.

    QuickClock default settings is often too aggressive for my use. If you add 2 to the lowest vsel it detects and add 2 to the stability buffer, you might appreciate it more. I select the "balanced" profile after it finishes detecting.
