    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    Plugs in and works - eg, use 'HelloWorld' example sketch under LiquidCrystal, but modify to use with constructor of 'LiquidCrystal lcd(8,9,4,5,6,7);' - as suggested previously. Works on 5V too (others are for 3.3v).Doesn't interfere with the spi pins, more on that later.

    Cons:

    Reset button is near the other buttons - easy to press if not careful.

    OtherThoughts:

    Make sure you wind the brass screw on the blue rectangle (variable resistor) about 25 or more turns (clockwise in my case) so that you can see the characters.

    Bottomline:

    Great value, easy to use.
