It's never useless. I'd probably say it's usefulness is diminished if I'm at shutter speeds faster than 1/1000 of a second with a wide to normal lens.

I don't find the tripod useful only for low shutter speeds but for critical composition especially with continuous exposures. At times it gives me freedom of movement. I may have more than one angle of a scene I care to capture and multiple setups with tripods is very useful regardless of what my shutter is set at.
