I prefer any case with a spine for clearly printing the artist and tile. I strongly dislike envelopes, sleeves and such.
I appreciate jewel cases for replaceability and protection of the CD.
Without going the extra mile, like Richard, to protect your digipaks, they certainly can get dinged, gouged and bent around the edges but I "like" them too.
The digipaks can also let in dust and grit more easily than jewel cases, particularly in transit and the car and such, but I haven't had any problems yet.
They can be a bit thinner for getting more CDs on your shelf, and as Mike stated, for shipping.
IMO, a tie!
