Pros: this shield is really well manufactured and is working directly with my mega 2560 card.
The product sent is as in the description and is well packaged (no scratch, no broken pin/button).
The variable resistance (blue plastic cap) in the LCD upper left corned allow the ability to dimm the backlight.
Cons: as from today, I didn't found any cons.... Read more
Pros: Bright back light, adjustaqble contrast, solid build, and plugs effortlessly into arduino. Cons: You can only have it blue. Bottom Line: There is nothing better i can think of, to have a basic input system (buttons) and output reading (the lcd display) without designing/assembling/soldering involved. Probably the first shield one should get. Read more
Impression:Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Owners;
Pros - The standard LCD Arduino library works great with this! I was able to find some code and modify the pin numbers so I could use a pro-mini to run the display. The contrast remains visible without any modification. The addition of the ICSP pins makes firmware updates a snap for your finished project.
Cons - The potentiometer stands too tall, I ... Read more
Excellent LCD. Soldering is good and the boards are assembled very nice. It also works with the arduino due (only needs to be fed +5V and it will accept the 3.3V data lines from the due). It can be directly inserted over the Duemilanove and you have the posibility to expose the pins that the screen is not using. It is very useful for learning/prototyping ... Read more
Works great. It is simple to find appropriate code examples for this LCD shield - just load HelloWorld example:
1) In Arduino IDE - File->Examples->LiquidCrystal->HelloWorld: 2) Change the constructor LiquidCrystal lcd(8,9,4,5,6,7). 1) The resistor (referred to as "blue box") which is used to adjust the brightness is a too high to ... Read more
Really quick delivery, the assembly is high quality, everything is precisely according to the advertised specifications. Works perfectly out-of-the box, just plugged it into my Arduino Uno R3 board. None really. The LCD display was well-packed, in a packaging that protects the display from static charges, and all the pins were wrapped in foam to prevent ... Read more
This lcd is easy to use, you plug and it works.
I'm a beginner and have no problem to use it.
Pretty blue screen with white characters.
Keypad use one pin. Plugged on the board, no more pin free. There is no manual included (but you can find what you need on internet). Works with #include <LiquidCrystal.h> LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7); ... Read more
As I received it I tried it, and it worked well with the information provided in the previous reviews. Very bright back illumination. Works with standard LiquidCrystal library. Everything is written in this forum on how to use. There are no documentation found besides this forum. Found some soldering issues, some of the pins are off axis. Uses six digital ... Read more
Seems to be fully compatible with the standard Arduino "LiquidCrystal.h" library. This same item is three to four times the price from other retailers. None that I've noticed. As others have mentioned, the contrast adjusting pot required many, many turns before I could see anything. (I was beginning to think the unit might be defective.)

Easy to use, good display, nice keypad very cheap Be careful with the backlight comtrol (see below), no documentation, pot sticks out above the display First, there is no documentation for this. However, the link below should give you all you need. The other thing to be aware of is the backlight control. Pin D10 controls the backlight and if you want ... Read more
