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

Pros:
- Nice view; - Small LCD; - Easy to use and to get code examples; - A lots of library on internet.
Cons:
- The contrast it's not so sensible; - Mine arrived without screen protection, but for test and develop it doesnt matter.
Other:
- Because of the interface (SPI), you can use in different kind of microcontroller and microprocessors, you need just to adapt the libraries. - You can find on you tube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABED5zdw4n4 an test that I made, getting the code on openenergymonitor.org.
Bottomline:
- If you want to test a small lcd for embedded projects you can buy it.
