In front of my S3
I've played around with stock, Nova and Apex and can't find much reason to change to a custom launcher - stock seems fine enough to me.

Am I missing something that these custom launchers bring to the party apart from a few extra graphic effects here and there? I'm only looking at the free apps for now so anything extra in the paid for versions is not under consideration.

I do understand custom launchers - have Go running on my FroYo Incredible. Just not seeing the extra wow when the stock ICS seems to be so good.
