Pros: Low price
On board buttons which use only a single analog input pin (A1); Possible to control backlight in SW (analogWrite(10,value) where value is 0-255). Supports *some* non-ascii characters
Cons: The buttons are hard-wired to 5V, and the connection is beneath the display so it can't be easily ... Read more
Pros: Works with the standard Arduino LCD driver. Uses the V1.0 values to sense the buttons through one analogue pin. PWM values to control the back light intensity. Cons: Red power LED is a little bright. Read more
I bought this shield to create a programmable dimmer system for an LED lighting project. I practiced programming it using the examples available. It works great, all the pins are in the right places. Solid construction. Next I need to figure out how to mount the display, and find appropriate keycaps ... Read more
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.... 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.... 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.... 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 ... 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 ... 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,... Read more
