At work (IT department) we use WinSCP. At home I've been using FileZilla.

I suppose it somewhat depends on your needsó what protocols, what level of security, what command line options, and so on. We use both WinSCP and Filezilla, both freely licensed. WinSCP has an edge on features (superior integration with PuTTy, Windows shell extensions, SCP protocol) while Filezilla has a more configurable user interface.

I like Filezilla because it is a very active project. Updates are regular and I feel this is importaint.
