Both torpedoes have their places. Photons do more DPS if you can keep the launcher on target every time the cooldown comes up. Depending on ship type and build, this can be often enough that it would be worthwhile. Of course they also do the most DPS as long as your target has no shields facing you, which is generally not much of an issue in PVE. With purple projectile DOFFs, they also refire pretty much immediately if it procs.
Quantums of course hit harder and are more useful when you need to time a solid strike, like PVP, or if you have a ship that has a slow turn rate and isn't usually facing the target like a cruiser, so you deliver a big punch every so often with quantums then go back to broadsiding.
