    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    * Very bright.
    * Nice soldering (good quality imo).
    * CONFIRMED: Works with Arduino!
    * Also works using the standard LiquidCrystal library.

    Please note:
    The data-pins are -not- arranged as they are for the Hitachi-driver! Therefor, the Arduino Example-sketches will NOT work by default with this display! To make the display work, use the following sequence of pins when starting the library:

    LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7);

    I LOVE this display! It's so easy + reading all the buttons only takes one analog in! (it adds up the analog value trough resistors)

    Cons:

    It doesn't say anything about the pin-setup for the liquidcrystal-library, so I had to find that out myself, which took an hour or so.

    Other than that I really can't find any cons with this display!

    OtherThoughts:

    Me and many people I know wish that DX would start selling serial displays.. Since this display is parallell, it uses way more i/o ports on the Arduino than a serial display would have. I already knew this display was parallel when ordering it, so it's really not an issue with the display itself.

    Bottomline:

    This is -totally- worth the price! It's a bright and solid display that is easy to read and very simple to use with the Arduino!
