WHAT'S IN THE PACKAGE
- 1x 1.8" LCD Screen
The LCD is a good deal for the price, but the position of the pins make it virtually impossible to mount this board in a case. Normally they would come out behind the display, but here the pins are flush with the display. When mounted inside a box, the display not be flush with the box. If your project is going into an enclosure, look carefully at the pins and make sure this will work for your needs.
I built a weather monitor (upgraded to a HVAC Controller) using this easy to use display. You can display a lot of information by using "pages" instead of trying to cram everything in at once.
Received display, works as expected with nice resolution. Viewing angle a little limiting but for the price break not bad at all. My only grip is its fragility, and the firmware examples. First time I used it the LCD fell off the PCB only hanging by the cable. The software examples don't compile under Arduino sketch v1.0.4
I am just not satisfied with the packaging, the box is almost crushed. It may be broke on the long shipping way. But fortunately, my product is in a whole skin. It looks nice. After I tried to test it, I found this shield display well, and the effect is just what I expected.
It is a beautiful and clear screen. It makes my Arduino Raspberry Pi more powerful.
Very nice. What a deal! It worth this price! The customer service is good as well .Love sainsmart!
Exactly one week after placing my order for the LCD, it arrived via USPS, for only $12.99! The display works great with my Raspberry Pi. It has a good color depth and are extremely inexpensive.
Faster delivery than expected! Quality appears good. Have not had chance to play with it yet. Have a couple of projects for it. Plenty of documentation and examples.
I was directed from a blog post www.whence.com/rpi , I bought this display to have a try it on Raspberry Pi, and it works well. I like it!
Really nice with SD!
