    Impression:almost burnt my arduino and usb port with it;

    Pros: Very cheap, and decent product. Clear image, and fun to use
    Cons:one of the pins, number 15, PSB is there to set it to serial or paralel mode. The LCD I received was making my arduino flicker while conected to serial, and I have found in some website (http://mssystems.emscom.net/helpdesk/knowledgebase.php?article=56&rated=1) that some of these cheap LCDs have the pin connected to the VDD pin, making pin 15 default high (paralel). If the user wants to use it serial, he should remove R9 resistor, and it would solve the problem. users used to do such things only should atempt to do this in order not to brick the LCD. DX does not tell you that, and I could have burned my arduino and usb port atempting to use it.
