How do you tell who made your SR MBP screen?

Title says it all.

Also, just curious as to whether or not this might be normal, but in regards to the backlighting,on the bottom portion of the screen, running from side to side, going upwards about 1mm from the bottom, it seems a little brighter than the rest of the screen. I was curious because I hadn't noticed this before on my other SR MBPs(I've gone through 4 due to various problems,I know, I have the worst luck)

Thanks!

The 17" SR MBP models don't use the same manufacturer codes as above because, obviously, they are different LCD displays! The backlight bleeding seems to be a rather commonly seen problem with the old backlighting that is still on the 17" models (that, as you should know, don't have LED backlighting).

thanks - there was nothing above to indicate this was a LED thread ? and, you're right, the backlight bleeding i have is nothing out of the ordinary for a standard lcd panel, which is what made me think this is more likely a 17" mbp thread.

i'll go back to lurking and waiting :)

my mistake,
I have the 15in, with what I think is backlight bleeding, Im not sure cause its not supper obvious, sometimes I see it sometimes I dont. its not a huge deal but Id still like to compare notes with others to see if I should return it since I still have a week.

and again, should I be reading the model or the manufacturer info? According to the model number, I have an LG, but Id like to be sure.
