Was it woodland pro chain that needed to be filed level, rather than with the 10˚ down angle on the file, for best cutting results?  I know Oregon chain like the 10˚ down angle, so I used that when I tried another chain (that I think was Woodland Pro - it's been a few years).  It did not cut well. I had given up on it, until Al Smith pointed out the different sharpening specs. Went back and tried it without the 10˚ down angle and it did cut better than before. 

I still don't buy it anymore since I tend to forget which chain I have on, and want to be able to sharpen everything I put on one saw the same way.

I did have a couple of problems with an occasional tooth or depth gauge so hard on a chain that I could not file it (ruined a couple of files trying).  This was either Woodland Pro or Total chain (which may have been the same thing at least at that time?)  I think it was this way out of the box, but it's possible I'm remembering incorrectly, and it happened after I took it to someone to regrind on their machine after hitting a rock.
