Wow @bobtheaxolotl why revive the old thread?
Can't disagree with you more. If you use the sous vide as you should and sear the outside of the steak to finish it, it's every bit as good as the steak that you can do on the grill (I think if I had a searing station, I could even do a better steak than the traditional BBQ method).
There's lots of information here: http://www.seriouseats.com/2015/06/food-lab-complete-guide-to-sous-vide-steak.html
The thing that people need to keep in mind is that a couple of years ago, sous vide wasn't mainstream. It's becoming more and more popular. As more information is shared, more people will have consistent results.
