    I've searched high and low and can't find it.

    How do I find out if I have an LG or Samsung panel?

    In terminal type this command.

    ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

    It should return something along the lines of:

    LSNXXXXX
    LPXXXXXX

    LSN being Samsung and LP being LG.

    I'd imagine its in the "Graphics/Display" section of your system information.

    Apple>About this mac>more info>Displays

    or

    Apple>about this mac>more info>system report>Graphics/Displays

    Awesome thank you, my display is great with no issues.

    Samsung FTW.

    It's not which is the weird part.

    How to tell if Samsung or LG panel?

    I've been hearing that they switched. I was wondering how I can tell which one I have on my rMBP.

    If it shows up "LP" its an LG panel

    "LSN" - samsung
