Does anyone really LOVE sous vide?

In talking with my food-loving friends, we've all concluded that food cooked sous vide is uniformly ghastly, especially proteins. They all seem to take on an odd, pre-digested texture and sometimes have an off-putting reduced aroma (as in the chemical reaction, not the technique). Other times the flavor is just gone all together.
I know it saves restaurants money and tenderizes tough meat, but how many of us can stand up and say they love food cooked this way?
