It depends on what you're trying to do, miking the cab feeds the actual sound of your amp and cab through the PA - using a DI box just feeds the pure sound of your guitar - it's really a question of what you want.

If you're using an FX pedal to give the sound you want, then a DI box is fine, just connect it after the pedal.

Personally I love my DI box! (in fact I bought a second identical one - Behringer DI120 two channel ones).

Just to confuse things further, you could even use both by "splitting" the signal between an amp and the DI.
