Superwinch LP8500 for $320..Good deal?

I'm in the marked for a decent low use winch, and before you all say "get a used warn" I have looked and there is nothing locally right now, and I'm not into buy a used winch sight unseen.

ANYWAYS, CT just had LP8500 on sale for $320 and were out of stock, but I have a rain check so now I have time to decide if it is a good buy. Seems like a good winch for the price and the reviews are mixed, but no red flags, so the question is: For $320 will this winch perform well enough for 3-4 times a year user?

Option B is a Titan, but it is $200 more, and might be overkill for my needs.

That's a decent winch, especially for the price. I have the Superwinch Epi9 and it has never let me down.

I run that exact same winch and it's been fine for me. No problems so far any of the times I've used it. Can seem a little slow on longer pulls but I would get it again if this one broke.

Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads.

Ok, well that is enough to make me want to go for it. And the supplier has a really good return policy so it's worth a shot.

Thanks for the input.
