I was aware of the lag before the fix but didn't really realize how bad it was until now that it's gone. My Captivate is all kinds of speedy, now.

This is supposed to be the most stable lagfix around. I am happy with it, I get my wordfeud notifications almost instantly compared to not getting them for several minutes if at all. Smoother scrolling and I am just really happy with the market place now. To me this is the best fix available.

Depends on where you are seeing the lag. It is generally believed that the i9000 based ROMs (everything pretty much except Cog) are a little faster. I have not personally noticed that, but the ROM developers pretty much all say it, so I presume it is true.
Also, you could use an overclocked kernel and clock up to 1.2Ghz, which most of the Captivates can handle. The only places this seems to REALLY help though, is full screen Flash content and games. If that is where you are seeing some lag, perhaps that might help. Please note that you may sacrifice stability for speed with OC- not all CPU chips are created equal... but the processor from Samsung seems quite capable, and most people start running into trouble not with the Overclock, but with the Undervolting (UV) that is enabled along with it. I leave both alone, so on your own there.
Where are you seeing the lag?

most noticeably just through general scrolling and moving around, apps take a sec or two to open, even the app drawer is kind of slow. it comes and goes though, sometimes it is smooth and sometimes its not. Not sure, could it be something else like launcher pro causing this?
I was streaming afull screen tv show last night and noticed that at times the audio didn't matchthe video and then it'd catch up but i just assumed that was my internet speed.
thanks for the input.

I have seen when you have the 3D app drawer in LauncherPro enabled, and a bazillion apps, you can lag that out. Disable the 3d effect and see if it goes away. A second or two for apps to open is normal for most apps, and as for the video/audio sync... that could unfortunately be like you thought, or any number of things including a badly encoded video itself.
Which version of Cog are you running? Stock Cog kernel, or ?? You may want to reboot into recovery and check the voodoo settings to make sure it is enabled. That should be fast enough to avoid the general lag from moving about... in fact, that is exactly what the lagfix is supposed to fix.

As loraque said, you can switch to a kernel that can be overclocked and see what happens. I always had some lag with Cognition with the stock kernel, especially when opening apps. When I switched to an I-9000 ROM with a OC/UV kernel, most of that went away. Currently running at 1.34ghz, my apps open almost instantly - especially email.Motorola Droid > HTC Aria > Samsung Captivate (Serendipity 7) > Virgin Mobile Optimus V (CM7) > Motorola Atrix > HTC Flyer

After installing the Voodoo lag fix, I can no longer plug my phone in to my pc and access the storage without USB debugging enabled. Is this normal?
edit: after some searching, I found that if you change the settings to samsung kies and back, it seems to work normally.
