I'd rather have boxed software because it's more trustworthy. I know instant downloading is faster "when it works", but my experience is that more often than not, it doesn't work and the time I spend with customer service people is a bigger drain than waiting for the box to show up.
I'm fine with either downloading or boxed. When I do download software I always take the time to back it up and to also burn it to a disk along with any registration or license information. That way it's always handy and available if I need to use it again for some reason.
