How to check what LED panel brand I have?

I go to terminal and typed
ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^]*/s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

and got nothing back.

then I tried

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

and got this back

@.`0 6
Color LCD

then i tried

ioreg -lw0 | grep -i "DisplayVendorID"

and got this back

| | | | | | "DisplayVendorID" = 1552

Any other way to tell?

That first one looks almost right. I used the following

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

Look at the beginning of the second line to see which manufacturer made your display. If it starts with LP then you have an LG display. Samsung displays start with LSN

i copied and pasted
ioreg -lw0 | grep "EDID" | sed "/[^]*/s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

and got this back

sed: 1: "/[^]*/s///": unbalanced brackets ([])

Well, I'm not sure why it's not working for you. Maybe someone else can help. It tells me I have a LG:

I have been reading online rMBP have issues with that command for some reason!
Is there an app or anything that can tell me?

Mind if I ask... Why do you want to know?
Does the display have a problem?

try this command:

ioreg -lw0 | grep "EDID" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r 
 
and see if you see an LSN or LP string in the output

Thanks everyone who posted...

I wish there was an App to tell me, but I was googling for hours and it seems like 13" rMBP can't display that string for some reason..

Bummer, There has to be some way to tell the screen maker?

It seems like (according to a Apple thread) 1552 indicates Samsung. If you do have an LG panel, ALL replacement panels that are being installed by stores and send-away repair are Samsungs.
