Since the docs indicate it: yes, you should.

Actually it depends on how much you plan to override. 

If you just want to change behaviour for one specific column or data type then 
using QStyledItemDelegate is the preferred way, since it respects the current 
Qt style for everything you leave to the original implementation. 

If you want to do all painting yourself and only leave the editor widgets to 
the delegate, using QItemDelegate may be more light-weight. It may also be 
preferred if you want the widget to be style-agnostic (or rather style-
ignorant) - i.e. you want it to look the same no matter what idiotic style 
settings the user chose.

If you want to override everything, forget about those and derive from 
QAbstractItemDelegate directly.
