Apex Data Loader or Import Wizard

Hi,

I have a CSV file with a list of 1800 accounts that I want to upload into our Salesforce.com database. These are all brand new accounts. We do not currently have any of these accounts within our SF. Is it better I use the Apex data loader and map the fields that way or should I use the import wizard that is in Salesforce.com and map the fields that way? I'm not sure the best way to go about it.

Let me know.

Thanks!
Ellyn

I'd take a look at this page: https://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=when_to_use_the_data_loader.htm&language=en_US 
For the number of records you're talking about, the best option seems to be import wizard.
