It has a very bright LCD screen and is totally compatible with the Arduino UNO. It is based in the HD44780 Nu electronics LCD shield.
Easy connection shield and very robust construction.
Paid half the cost of the same shield in a local shop.
You can see the schematics here: http://www.nuelectronics.com/download/projects/LCDshield_v1_1.pdf (With actual pinout configuration)
Different pinout configuration than the one used for the examples.
It's tricky to set up for first time.
In order to make it work with the provided Arduino IDE examples you have to modify the LiquidCrystal lcd definition line to "LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7);" Then everything works fine and smoth.
There are no ICSP jumpers in this board, so, if you need them you'll have to solder them by yourself.
Has few solders are a little bit dirty.
This package almos take a month to arrive.
