    I tested it with the Raspberry Pi B and an older version of the product (my version seems to have bigger buttons than on the current pictures): Pros: - display and the buttons work good - it's cheap - there is a rubber standoff underneath for protection - adjustable contrast (via screwdriver) - a...

    Cheap and works pretty good. Has good build quality. Its not what you expect when you read RGB backlit. The LCD has only white fonts and blue backlit. There is a RBG LED in the upper part to simulate an RGB LCD Backlit. The upper RGB LED is kinda useless and is to bright unless you want a case of... Read more

    A great comparison to the Adafruit version! Works perfectly with the Adafruit software and very good quality!
