I much prefer calendar events because I sync my calendars across multiple platforms.
For example, if I create a calendar event on my phone, it will show up on google calendar on my pc. Reminders on the other hand can't be synced to other calendars.
Also, there's lots of great 3rd party calendar apps (miCal is my favorite), but there are no 3rd party Reminders apps.

The idea for a task/reminder is that you have something to do by a given date/time, but unlike an event on a calendar it doesn't matter when you do a task as long as it's before that date - or it could be open ended.

More for reminding me to make phone calls, remember to phone someone etc. I wouldn't want to fill up my calendar with stuff like that.
When I got my 4S they told me that after 14 days I could claim £50 cashback for giving my old phone to my wife. So I opened Siri in the shop and told it to remind in 14 days from now to call "insert number here" for my rebate. It added a reminder for the 28th. Great stuff!
