    How do I tell if I have a Samsung or LG screen in my 15" Retina MBP? I've tried a few of the scripts, but none of them are working. Is this because of a recent OSX update or something? Thanks!

    Maybe this* can help finding the model, if the Terminal command** does not work.

    Terminal command:
    Code:
    ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

    Go to finder, Type and Open "Terminal" Application.

    Copy and Paste this onto Terminal (NOTE: This is a different command than what simsaladimbamba stated)

    Code:
     ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6
    If your display code begins with "LP," it's an LG display. If your display code begins with LSN, you can celebrate as it's a SAMSUNG dislay.
