My own experience was migrating from Kodak Gold Max 200 
(generic, cheap, K-Mart stuff) to a roll of Royal Gold 
100... or maybe it was Reala.

The difference was like night and day, and the difference 
was quite apparent even on a cheap 1950 dpi film scanner.

Since that "discovery" I've not used any film faster than 
100 ISO, and I have shied away from the generic films.  
I now use only Reala, Royal Gold 100, or Supra.

I also buy my film in "bulk" (eg., 10 or more rolls at 
once) via mail-order from BH Photo.  Or in a pinch, at 
Hunt Drug (Boston's big photo store.)  A few local 
stores carry Royal Gold and/or Reala, but their prices 
are often 50% - 75% higher than those at BH Photo.
