Called LGMay 08, 2010
By S. Lerette After reading the debate here about the original "A" filter and the newer "B" filter, I called LG.
They stated there is absolutely no difference in the two filters, as far as performance and filtering capabilities.

Be careful about product and fulfillment!Sep 30, 2009
By Humble Patriot This is LG's discontinued 5231JA2006A, NOT the current 5231JA2006B. I replaced my older filter when this arrived from Amazon and it works, but the current version is an improvement over this one. The problem with this filter is the price they are demanding for a discontinued product. I paid way too much for this filter as it is inferior to the current item that is available on the market. Unfortunately, the vendor doesn't make it clear exactly which filter one is purchasing, since the current product's item number appears in parentheses here on Amazon (and, as I recall, on the vendor's website). I recommend finding the current filter and paying the few extra dollars as it is superior to this one.
Unfortunately, Amazon often compiles reviews for identically-titled, though slightly different products, so it is sometimes difficult to identify the exact product/vendor being reviewed. The product I reviewed above was marketed -- and purchased -- as the LG 5231JA2006B, but I received the discontinued filter. My review then appeared under both product listings on Amazon for some reason. The vendor was a third party vendor (not fulfilled by Amazon), and I don't recall exactly which vendor it was. The lesson here is to be careful not only about the product one purchases, but to identify how and by whom the purchase is fulfilled. I have since purchased the current (and correct) filter a number of times on Amazon and am very happy with it.

Not discontinuedNov 07, 2011
By J. Bradford
I researched these filers over a year ago when I was hunting for the cheapest place to purchase a replacement. The "A" model is not discontinued, it just doesn't filter out as much as the "B" model does. So if you are looking for a filter that meets ANSI 42 standards this will do just fine. If you want a better filter that meets ANSI 42 and 53, then go with the more expensive B model. It really depends on the water you are filtering as everyones water from the tap will be different. I have purchased both filters from discountfilterstore.com with excellent service and their website provides the breakdown of particulates filtered for each model. Don't take everyone lines of something being discontinued. They wouldn't still be selling them years later if they were discontinued.

LG5231JA2006A does NOT filter all that LG5231JA2006B does!Dec 29, 2011
By Shawn Reese LG5231JA2006A only meets ANSI/NSF Standard 42, but LG5231JA2006B meets 42 & 53. DO NOT BUY LG5231JA2006A thinking you are getting the same filtration as LG5231JA2006B. The description is wrong on this page saying that it removes "96.7% of Mercury, 99.31% of Lead, 95.9% of Atrazine, 96.3% of Benzene, 93.06% of 2,4-D, 99.09% of Lindane, 99.99% of Cysts, 99.3% of Turbidity, 99.9% of Particulates (Class I), 97.6% of Chlorine Taste & Odor". It only removes "93.2% of Particulates (Class I), 97.4% of Chlorine Taste & Odor".

SELLER IS GOUGING YOU !!!!!Jan 31, 2010
By Shark Man 5231JA2006B (or LG LT600P)is the newer and BETTER replacement filter for 5231JA2006A, and is only about $45. This seller is trying to make a killing selling the "original/old filter" to people who don't know any better. This older filter is only about $35 at most sites that still have it for sale.
