Good LCD Shield for Arduino – LCD Keypad Shield for Arduino Duemilanove & LCD 1602 Reviews

posted by Vockhead on 04/17/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Really easy to use, can just throw it onto the Arduino (Uno in my case) or you can connect it via wires if you would like to keep the pins free. -Buttons work perfectly, display is clear and crisp.
Cons:
- Trimmer pot for backlight was initially turned all the way and had no light or signal coming out, had to play with it a bit to display anything, initially thought it was broken.
Other:
It would have been nice if the buttons and extended a bit farther out so they matched the height of the screen, might need to make/buy button extenders so I can put this in an enclosure.
Bottomline:
Great board to have, seems to work perfectly. No complaints so far.
