Works with the UNO board without much effort, nice bright screen with adjustable pot on the top of the board. Also has soldering contacts on the top of the board which are marked for easy modding and building into a housing unit.
While it works with the UNO the pins used in the example sketches are different than the pins used on this board so you have to change the code each time you use an example sketch. The pot was turned quite low on mine so I had to play around with that quite a lot (make sure you have a small flat head screwdriver to hand). Also on delivery the pins were slightly bent so fitting it was a bit annoying at first but it works just fine.
Would be nice if it came with some notification that the pin layout is different to the Arduino example sketches but it's easy to figure out what does what.
Good price for a cheap LCD shield that works with the Arduino UNO right away and the build quality isn't too bad. Perfect compliment to any beginner's Arduino kit.
