Apex Data Loader or Import Wizard


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.

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.
