Warn M8000 winch, shold i get one?

Ok I've got a line on an open box Warn M8000 w/ frirlead winch. Are they good winches, do they last a long time, How long is the cable? Is the motor very powerful? Pretty much should i get this winch or wait till I can get a HS9500i but that would be a lot more money for a little more pulling power and calbe length. Anybody running this winch?

Thanks in Advance,

Thats the same winch as my 6000 and the 6000 has always had more than enough power, the only time I have ever needed the snatch block is pulling a 3/4 ton PU out of the river sunk in mud to its doors. If you can get a good price on it, definitely go for it.
