    Hi, I have just upgrade from my 13" in my sig to a new 15" 8/256/2.0
    How do I check which manufacturer the screen is from?
    I have tried "ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6" but it shows nothing! It did show "Color LCD" the first time I ran it.
    Is there another command?

    My understanding is this command only works if you have the nvidia 750m discrete graphics chip.

    The Setting>Display>Colour>Profiles>Colour>17 mmod shows
    Manufacturer 00000610
    Model 0000A022
    Manufacture Date CD238700

    What is that?

    It appears that I have a Samsung screen then.
    At the moment no signs of IR or yellowing :D

    I just had a screen replacement on my rMBP at weekend.
    I got a most unexpected result when I looked at its details :eek:
    I know it's a LG - SJA2 but it doesn't say that
    Code:
    mike-pc:~ Mike$ ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6
    Color LCD
    LP154WT1-SJA2
