My experience was they were quite mediocre then under Tom Brookes became very good, I'd always used trade suppliers in Birmingham but coinciding with a change in job suddenly found my loaca; store could fill all mt needs at the same proces. Yes I did have to explain to the manager of my local store that they coul supply 5x4 film, he told me it had been discontinued years earlier. After that they were good for anything but O moved abroad when I used them again all that had changed.
