I got mine today. I'm pretty happy. I took a photo of the brightness uniformity and it's certainly not perfect but isn't easily noticeable in practical use (though certain areas like the lower corners are noticeable if you look for it on an all white screen). I may post it later as it's still in my camera.
I have my brightness down to 32 after calibrating it with a Spyder4 and do not notice any flickering.
A definite upgrade over my 2405FPW. The new monitor has better image quality (and the 2405FPW wasn't bad to begin with), is lighter weight, and more energy efficient. I like that LED comes on at full brightness.

I think you are right regarding the "b" designation, however I have an A03 U2412Mb manufactured BEFORE the A00 U2412Mb I got from this Newegg deal. I did some searching and saw someone post a similar finding. Also, some people seem to prefer the less aggressive anti-glare coating on the A00 vs later revisions, but this still seems odd they would revert back to A00. If someone can post or link an explanation I'd be interested.
From what I've been able to find out, the "b" designation indicates the place of manufacture, so you're probably right and they rolled back to A00 when production started at that facility.
For gaming, media and general desktop use, the U2412M is probably a better choice for the average user. The wide gamut color on the U2410 can actually be a detriment if it's not needed.
