I generally take magazine reviews with a grain of salt. Some good information may be provided, But how much do you trust someone who accepts advertising money from the companies whose tools/products they are reviewing? I have to agree with Sandor, though.. Festool rarely, if ever gets my consideration on price alone.
The domino fills no need that I have, personally. If it does what you need it to, that's fine, I have no problem whatsoever with you having one. That is why there are a variety of products available!
If I can buy 2 PC, Bosch, DeWalt, or Craftsman, or what have you for the price of 1 High end brand tool, there is a good chance they will last as long or longer. Unless there is HUGE difference in performance, I see little advantage to the expensive stuff. Not to mention in the event they are stolen(can be a big issue in certain locales) I don't feel quite as bad about having to replace them!
As Mike always says, I'd rather try a tool in my own hands, than blindly accept some one else's opinion. Look at any of the "What brand Widget should I buy threads!) Opinions are all over the map... and that is ok!
If 90% of the opinions are that a products is good or is junk, it may well influence my opinion/ decision, but it may or may not be the sole basis.
Some buy the cheapest they can find because they have limited use for a given tool or because that is what they can afford, or that is what they want. Some buy middle of the road because it may well be the best VALUE. Some buy high end because they see value or ease of use in them. Some buy high end for the "My tool is better than your tool" syndrome.
Edit: Some even buy tools because someone else bought one, not having any specific need whatsoever!
It's your money, not my job to choose for anyone else. When asked, I may give an opinion, but that all it is, my opinion. My values aren't Sandor's, any magazine's, or probably yours.
Sandor expressed his opinion, it is up to you of what value that is to you! Personally I am not going to think less of his talent because I don't happen to agree with a tool choice/opinion he expresses!
