VSYNC OFF has less input lag, but it can amplify microstutters that makes LightBoost feel less smooth. (LightBoost clarity makes tearing/microstutters easier to see)

If you like the LightBoost motion and lag with VSYNC OFF, keep VSYNC OFF for the best competitive advantage. Adaptive VSYNC is a tradeoff that tries to minimize lag while simultaneously eliminating the microstutters made more visible by LightBoost. But if any visible microstutters aren't bothersome (framerates in huge excess of Hz helps a lot for VSYNC OFF), then use VSYNC OFF.

VSYNC ON -- Most lag, motion looks most beautiful if framerate caps fully at Hz. Severe changes in framerates/lag during slowdowns (e.g. 120fps falls to 60fps).
VSYNC OFF -- Least lag, but microstutters/tearing can become more visible with CRT's and LightBoost. LightBoost can look 'jittery' sometimes.
Adaptive VSYNC -- Tries to combine the best of the two above. Generally will have less lag than VSYNC ON, more lag than VSYNC OFF
