Need some changes to get the demo code to work
To get the demo code to work, you need to replace #include "WProgram.h" with #include "Arduino.h" as that has now been updated, and as someone else mentioned this shield uses different pins from most others so you need to change LiquidCrystal lcd(12, 11, 5, 4, 3, 2); to LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7);
When I ordered this product I got it because of the price which is unbeatable. I searched for weeks looking for a cheap LCD shield for my Arduino Uno and when I stumbled upon this one I knew it was the perfect fit for me and my needs. Not only does it have built in buttons and an accessible reset button it also has headers so additional hardware accessories can be added easily. Also the shield is compatible with many boards so I can use it with my Arduino mega. When I first plugged in the shield, it lit up very brightly and I noticed there was a built in contrast potentiometer that was very useful for adjusting to different lighting environments. For code I went to this page and downloaded sample code which worked on the first try. The quality is great everything is sturdy and has a sturdy solid feeling to it. This shield is lots of fun and works great for all kinds of projects. Another great thing about it is that the LCD takes up almost all of the space on the shield so the space is getting used for the bright 16 by 2 LCD. It also has screw holes for mounting which are useful for mounting the Arduino and LCD together. Over this product is a great value and I would absolutely get one again.
The LCD Keypad shield was an excellent purchase, it is very convenient to use for Arduino. SainSmart is really a good brand.
It’s the best shield I had used. It works for my project.
I have no issue about this module display as it works as described. Happy with the purchase!
Well worth for the price
This shield works great. Its almost as good as the others.
Worth the money
Nice soldering, I think. It has a very bright LCD screen and is compatible with the Arduino UNO. Also works using the sample library.
Fast help from the support
I bought it two weeks ago, and received it a week ago. It's fast for the free shipping. Connected to Mega2560, uploaded the default LCD1602 code. I saw power red led, but nothing on the display. I turned the brightness screw 2 times but no change. No hello no data. Contacted the support, problems solved. It was the path fault, not the LCD itself.
Nice experience, and nice price
An issue with the shipment was resolved promptly. Trustworthy and honorable people.
Well, this time is full-documented
The listing had improved a bit since my last purchase in 2012. Happy to see the changes. And the product is good as ever.
