This display can operate in SPI mode, which is a huge benefit when you need the fewest pin count. The backlight is nice and bright and the contrast is adjustable on the back with a pot. Works out of the box with Arduino u8glib.
The backlight needs to be wired separately from the display inputs, and there seems to be no documentation on the current or voltage required for the backlight. The backlight isn't adjustable on the board.
I recently bought two more since it turns out they make excellent permanent displays on small projects.
The resolution is good at 128x64, the price is good, and the display speed is decent enough for updating outputs/data many times per second. There is a little LCD lag, but it isn't a problem unless you're trying to do high speed graphics.
