Samsung PN51F5300 models A & B

I'm thinking of purchasing the Samsung PN51F5300. After reading some posts I've learned that there are two different models, A and B, the B model is the newer model and has a better picture quality.


My question is how can I tell which model I'm getting? Is it on the outside of the box? If it is on the box or on the TV itself and I'm at a physical retail store I hopefully might be able to tell. If I decide to buy it online then it is not going to be so easy.


Can anyone help me out with this? It would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks

It is on the box (on one of the labels) as well as on the back of the TV panel. Most likely any new one you buy now would be a B model unless it is really old stock.

Thanks. If I buy online I guess I'll have to contact them to see what model it is.

I think you are pretty much assured of a B unit from online purchases. Most retailers still list it as A models on their websites since they haven't updated the product page since last year.
