Keep in mind that the AC selection implies different damage types, trooper-ranged, smuggler-melee range. For some players, that makes the decision right there.

They both use energy based healing systems with similar regeneration.

Troopers are nuke healers, smugglers are a combination of nukes and hots. Troopers do bring some nice healing buffs to a raid. Both take longer (in terms of levels) to hit a decent healing throughput compared to a force healer, so you really need to get in the 23-25 range before you pick up important talents for both.

Even at low levels they have different play styles, try both and see what you like. No one else can tell you what will resonate with your desires.
