For certain in-game framerates, after playing a song, you might notice that the crosses in the accuracy graph form straight lines. This isn't an issue with lag, but it's intrinsic to how Adobe AIR handles keyboard inputs amongst other events. Input polling could make it more difficult to get better judgments: For example, on 60 FPS, even though you technically got an Amazing, the game would say you got a Perfect, or even worse, an Average or Good.

If you're noticing signs of input polling (straight lines in accuracy graphs), try fiddling around with the framerate you're using in the Settings menu. I've seen people use 50, 52, 55, 59, 120, 240, and 250 FPS without issues, but you'd need to try each of them to see which one works for you.
Yeah, I use a keyboard with 1000hz polling rate, which is really important for rhythm games as it will be more responsive to your accuracy.
