Ilford film and paper is all excellent. I've been using MCC110 and Ilford MGWT FB for neutral and warm respectively but going to take another look at MGIV. I'm as impressed as others with Ilford's commitment to analog and black and white and seriously thinking of going 100% Ilford except where there's a unique product they have nothing like.
Ilford is also, in my experience, very consistent. I was running low on 8x10 MGWT and used 11x14 for cutting test strips - absolutely consistent exposure from these two boxes of different sizes.
It's a bit pricey (then again, so is MCC 110) but worth it. And the film is lots cheaper than Kodak in sheets. (Well, anything is. Kodak seems determined to price themselves out of sales of sheet film.)
