Which toilet? American Standard Mainstream or American Standard Cadet 3?

I am trying to decide between the 2.

The Mainstream is $119 CAD: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1407889/M.pdf

The Cadet 3 is $159 CAD: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1407889/C.pdf

what do YOU like?

I strongly prefer an elongated bowl but the trap size and flush valve in the round front are better, IMO, which would mean fewer clogs. Are there any sort of flush ratings available for them? If the flush ratings are equal or close, I would go for the elongated bowl.

Heck, if the elongated toilet doesn't have great flush ratings, I prefer an elongated bowl so much I would find an elongated bowl unit with good flush ratings. I simply would not install a round front bowl any more.

I spent a few more bucks for a Champ 4, elongated, chair height.

You will still be living with a lesser unit long after the cheaper price has been forgotten.

I recently bought two new toilets. Both elongated and chair height. One is a Delta Prelude, the other is a Gerber Viper. They're both nice, but the Gerber is very quiet when it flushes, and seems like a more powerful flush.
