Is this a 2013 model week 50??
No, it's actually a 2012
Week 50 model, December 10 to December 16 (I'm sure you meant 2012)...
2013 models have SN WAP,
e.g WAP01 (first week of January 2013).
I have a WAN50
that I purchased at my local Best Buy on December 27 (going on four months), and have had NO ISSUES
whatsoever and couldn't be happier if I had spent $2000 or more for one of those other "high end" brands. The color and sharpness are suburb, and I've had no technical issues at all. The only thing to mention is a bit of the lip-sync that was immediately resolved once my Firmware updated from 1.1.4 to 1.1.5 within a couple days of setup.
Go to Menu>Help>System Info
and verify your Firmware version is 1.1.5
. If not, it should update at some point when you power on your set.
I'm just a bit perplexed that the WAN50, or any sets going back to that "era", are still being sold when I would have thought the stock from that time would already have been depleted and anyone purchasing a new set would find something at least in the WAP (2013) generation. Probably not a big deal and, considering the outstanding performance of my own WAN50, wouldn't consider this any kind of setback.
