I think that's the same film that they sell in grocery stores/walmarts in the US as "Black & White +" or something like that. I used it a couple of years ago before I started ordering all my film from B&H where T400CN was just so darn cheap to buy. I seem to recall reading somewhere that B&W+ was pretty similar to T400CN (just not the "professional" version), although I'm sure someone will correct me. Anyway, I always had good experiences with it. I treated it the same as T400CN (e.i. 200, if possible).
