Agreed with Ray, DEM is primarily used to penetrate shields, which aren't a huge concern in PvE except against cubes and bosses.

PvP however, with extends, TSS, EPTS, Sci Teams, RSP, etc etc etc - DEM is favorable.

It should also be noted that DEM is per-pulse, which means it stacks better with rapid-fire cannons/turrets than beams. More penetration. They also consume far less power than beams.

Beams require EPtW just to maintain sufficient effect due to power drain.

Just small notations to consider.
