Would Agfa qualify as "large brand"? If so, their FX-Universal Fixer (pH=about 7.5 when diluted for B+W film and paper) is reasonably priced and very good. I use it for everything.

And, since it is made primarily for colour work, is probably going to stay on the market even if Agfa get rid of their B+W products.
