Are chain cleaning boxes actually worth it, or are a brush and a rag just as good? What's the best one to buy? Thanks!

I have one and it does not work very well. I now use a Wippermann chain with a quick-disconnect link. Makes cleaning the chain very easy.

i have the park tools one

http://www.parktool.com/products/detail.asp?cat=5&item=CG-2

i just got the chain machine box thing and got some simple green from home depot, much cheaper than "bicycle" chain cleaner stuff.

the product works very well, just fill it up put it on, and run the chain backwards a few times, take it off, and wipe off the chain, wait about 10 mintues, relube it, wipe off chain and your chain is literally as clean as new if not cleaner.

the brush and rag thing works too, but it takes longer and is definitely messier.
