I have guitars with both.  I would go with an original floyd every time.  I like the Schaller, but the only reason I chose it is because it was a direct drop in replacement for another trem in a production guitar.  The ones that I have built have original floyds.  The original floyd has a stainless steel plate.  The Schaller is cast and has inserts for screw holes and the knife-edge.  However, if you have an overly bright tone, the Schaller will warm that up a bit.

I've had both

go schaller, the original's clamp screwheads extend further out towards the ass of the guitar.so you can pull backwards further w/o hitting the body.
