How to do it?
1. Run the command in a terminal window to see if you have LG or Samsung: ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6
i got this, so is it samsung or LG
LG it is.
It's LG. Don't worry about it... enjoy it instead.
does all the LG display has problem?
LG is definitely inferior to Samsung.
right now i cant tell any problem from it with normal usage unless i try to find out the retention thing.
The "retention thing" will get worse with time. Samsung is not that great either, bad pixels all over the place. But I think that Samsung is much brighter than LG, and since I like my display to be on 100% brightness most of the time, I would not tolerate LG display.
Curious, has anyone found the terminal command to determine the make for a 13" retina? I know the above command only works for 15" rMBP.
No, but many sources claim that the 13" rMBP is LG only. Can't prove it or something, but maybe somebody would discover how to check the display manufacturer
I read that it was samsung, LG and sharp.
I've already extracted the info from my 13 rMBP. There's no serial number and the manufacturer code is "APP". No way to know from the information the screen returns.
That's a good thing so people wouldn't refund or exchange just because their screen is from LG. We've seen so many people doing this.
Where exactly is all over the place? Can you please define that statement for me more precisely?
is this a LG or Samsung screen in my retina
I have a 13" retina and the command doesn't work??
woot i just got it in today i was hoping it wasnt going be a LG
I hope people refund/exchange just because it's LG screen so I can buy their refurb. Gotta love these people.
how do i get to the terminal window? I know that is probably a dumb question but I googled and couldn't find out how to do it in mountain lion.
command + space and then type terminal. it should be the first option
write your title on google
Be very careful using any commands in terminal. You can very easily destroy all your data just because someone thinks its fun to do that. If you ever see something somewhere post it here first and the more knowledgable members here will let you know if its safe and what it will do.
The code posted here regarding displays is fine but overall if you aren't familiar with terminal commands you should stay away from it. That said you should either get a book or look for tutorials online about how to use the terminal. It's a very powerful tool and can be very handy when troubleshooting problems.
