Tub advice brands A.Standard/Mansfield

Hello all, I'm planning to replace a tub -- seems to be many options, looking for any advice on brands.

I am looking to get a steel alcove 60x30 to replace existing.

Home depot seems to feature American standard and having a lot of different models to choose from. Lowes in my area seems to feature Mansfield.

I'd like a long warranty, seems like most of the american standard have residential limited lifetime. I'd also like some kind of insulation in the tub to retain heat and lower noise as well.

Any suggestions or opinions on brands? I think I'm leaning toward the American standard with Americast -- but frankly I never shopped for tubs before and know little about brands, quality, etc.

If there was a one best the others would be out of business.

Tubs, love steel and porcelain, hate fiberglass and acrylic but it's mostly a budget decision.
