I have used cryo hops plenty and I have not noticed a difference in hopiness, when used at the recommended rate. Better yield can be had, but at the small scale of homebrewing, IMO it doesn't matter much. IIRC, cryo hops were developed to improve yield (at the commercial scale), not so much hopiness.
Cryo hops definitely have their place at the commercial scale. At the homebrew scale, could be a case of expectation bias or a reality-astonishes-theory thing.
