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).
