    Hi i just bought the 13inch Macbook Pro Mid 2014 model 256gb model. Got it on sale from Best buy. I wanted to check if I got a Samsung of LG Screen.

    I tried:
    Code:
    ioreg -lw0 | grep "EDID" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6
    It returns
    I searched around and then tried. Someone said string location had changed.
    Code:
    ioreg -lw0 | grep "EDID" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r
    This Returned:
    Code:
    ??????? ??xo??UL?%
    PT?h??@.`0 6??Color LCD


    Still no luck. Is there a different command for checking Screen type. I am running 10.10. Thanks for the help.

    Just to add more information if it helps. This is what I got from my display profile in color sync utility:
    Code:
    Manufacturer: 00000610
    Model: 0000A020
    Manufactor Date: CD238700

    Thanks that helps. Its a bummer I got the Toshiba. Any way to check if I got the batch or Toshiba that is considered good? I wonder if it is worth it to go ask for a trade
