    To find your SSD manufacturer:

    Click on About This Mac
    Click on More Info....
    Click on System Report
    Click on Sata/SataExpress
    Look for the Model number:

    Mine is reporting: APPLE SSD SM0512F <--- Which is a Samsung

    To find your Screen Manufacturer:

    Open Terminal
    Paste this command

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

    Read the output, you are looking for an “LP” prefix to numbers reported back:

    Mine is reporting: LP116WH4-TJA3 Color LCD <-- Which is an LG

    If the prefix is not “LP” then you have a Samsung display.

    The information you are seeking has been posted quite a bit before and I can find numerous threads on the subject.

    It also interesting to note that some have sought to have the LG screen calibrated. I had to do this on mine as the default appeared a bit washed out. After calibration, it is much better to my eyes.
