    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Very good (when it works :P) product, you just have to go to arduino.cc to see the tutorial for liquidCrystal library but you have to get by for the keyborad (no library :/).

    To connect it, just like the other said, do :
    liquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7)
    without forgetting to include the library :
    #include <liquidCrystal.h>

    Cons:

    I don' know why but at the begining, it won't work ... I can't see anything on it and suddenly it work !?! I won't understand because now it's ok.
    Don't look for a library, there aren't any up to date :/
    for my own the backlight is too dark. just turn the potentiometer left and right and stop when white squares appears.

    OtherThoughts:

    nothing to say

    Bottomline:

    good product
