Obviously you are not counting, so it shouldn't matter how the cards are delivered. What does matter is the increase in hands per hour. The house edge will grind you down faster with these machines. Hand shuffled tables are still plentiful in each casino at Foxwoods, so you should have no trouble finding them.
If you absolutely must play at a table outfitted with a shuffling machine, make sure it's a full table to keep the hands per hour as low as possible.
