Prussian Blue does vary, as do most pigments. In watercolour this goes beyond colour alone as there are other properties that can be varied, depending on pigment version and differences in milling and formulation.

First place I'd suggest you look is on the Handprint page on blues, the author's comments will provide a good overview of the kinds of variations you can expect.

You could then compare the swatches for this colour among various brands on Dick Blick for a rough visual comparison.

The Winsor & Newton tube Prussian blue is nice enough, I've enjoyed using it. I haven't tried their pan colors.
