I read the same article about joint strength and I still would maintain that the Domino has it’s place. I am discerning about what joints I use where. Using the appropriate joint on a project is just like using the appropriate tool to do a particular task.

Are the machine and the dominos expensive? Yes, and personally I am glad that I spent the money. But everyone should understand that I have different parameters for buying tools as a professional. These parameters are not the same for the hobby woodworker.

I have made my own loose or floating tenons and I would rather just buy them. But once again, my perspective comes from that of a business where time is money.

If it is a good price, I would buy it knowing that you could use it some and still turn around and get your money or most back out of it.
