The lag doesn't disappear with smart trainers, either.  That 1-2 second lag is pretty consistent whether you're using zPower, a power meter with a dumb trainer, or a crazy expensive smart trainer.  That said, I've heard the user experience is definitely better on a controlled trainer vs. just a power meter (I have a Powertap hub).  If you want lots of reviews, go here:

Wahoo works pretty well, especially if you tinker with the settings.
When I first started out, I could not really participate because I'd get "stuck" and couldn't pedal hard enough to get enough power to register in order to free up the resistance so I could move. I changed some settings and now I can feel the hills, set up my own interval training, and participate with others without getting stuck like that.

I just ordered a Wahoo snap looking forward to trying it to see if it is any less laggy
