It works, has a backlight and is cheap.
Mine came pretty scratched and with some "glue" on the screen. Not bad enough that I won't be able to use it but seems to be of worse quality than most DX stuff.
Not so straightforward to plug to the Arduino because it expects 3.3V instead of 5V. It sort of works on 5V but is so glitchy it's not even funny. Works a lot better by plugging Vcc to the 3.3V pin on the Arduino and adding a 10k resistor in series with the 5 logical pins.
I *really* wish these would have circuitry on board to accept 5V without extra stuff.
Buy it if you don't mind a scratched screen and the extra components to interface with the Arduino.
