    Pros:
    I highly recommend this LCD screen instead of the old, limited HD44780 screens. Even though it is small-sized, by using designated libraries (Adafruit for the Arduino, for example), you can display almost anything (monochrome that is, a pixel can be either ...

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

    Pros:
    Good finish, fully functional, ready to use does not need more components to the Arduino. Should just add two libraries. It has blue leds end black points... Simple to use Good price in Brazil is very expensive...
    Cons:
    I don't have. I liked the product and it's all right

    Great!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Easy to use, found driver code on the Internet and it worked first try. Hardware interfacing is a snap. Great price. Bit mapped display offers great flexibility. Screen is small and still contains 6 lines of 14 characters.
    Cons:
    Blue led backlight is actually sidelights that are quite visible when on. Some scratches on display face.
