• It depends on your data. If they are reasonable Normal distributed then you must use the T-test, otherwise you can use the non parametric test of kolmogorow smirnov for small samples or the wilcoxon-mann-whitney for large samples (as your data are) – niandra82 Jun 16 '14 at 12:01
• Isin't Hotelling's T2 test used in such contexts? – user46697 Jun 16 '14 at 12:21
