After a couple of cheap winch disappointments, I'd go Warn or nothing. You will use your winch as often as you get stuck, where you can't use a strap.
While that sounds like answering a question with a question, what I mean is that some people always seem to end up in the inaccessible parts of the mud, and some people don't. Whenever I get into a place where I need recovery it's just a quick pull on a strap and I'm free.
Regardless, if you have a winch you should be able to count on it. Warn is the standard for better quality winches for a reason.
