Tamiya Sprays Vs. Topcoat

Picked this up from a local hobby store. Haven't tried Tamiya's line of spray finishes, I've only used Mr. Hobby's Topcoat in the past. This one here I think is the equivalent of a gloss Topcoat (there's a flat Tamiya too, maybe even a semi-gloss).

So, has anyone tried these sprays from Tamiya? I'm curious to know how they stack up to the infamous (since now mostly unavailable in the US) Topcoat. Of course, I could just try it out myself, but that will have to wait for now (I need a suitable model to test it on). I hope it's good, cause then I'd have a renewable and cheaper replacement for Topcoat!
