Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Price. It includes a solution of a LCD display and control push buttons in just one module. There is no documentation but fortunately this module is very used so you can find tons of source code about how to use it.
Cons:
Need a lot of pins to work (A0, D4, D5, D6, D7, D8, D9, D10) so it is difficult to combinate it with too much more things or with modules like the ethernet shield.
Other:
For professional project I would use separated components but this module is ok for testing or doing home projects.
Bottomline:
Arduino Entushiast
