Which do you think is the better +15V reg: ST MicroElectronics L7815CV or National Semiconductor LM340T-15?

Comparing their datasheets, it seems to me that the ST L7815CV is slightly superior, but I'm not really sure as I'm not an expert at reading datasheets. :D Could someone please help me verify this? Note, please focus specifically on the +15V reg only, as this is what I'm interested in.

Thanks a lot! :)
