SSB Winlink vs Sailmail

I'm in the process of getting a HAM General License to be able to access HAM bands on the SSB. Have been using Sailmail for email service and will be able to use Winlink as well with the Ham cert. Am wondering what the comparison is between these two systems for email transmissions. Is one preferable to the other? Is Sailmail $250 bucks better than Winlink? What are the actual benefits you've found of being able to transmit on Ham frequencies?
