  • High-quality assembly

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Really quick delivery, the assembly is high quality, everything is precisely according to the advertised specifications. Works perfectly out-of-the box, just plugged it into my Arduino Uno R3 board.

    Cons: None really.

    Other: Well done, worthy stuff. The price is also very reasonable. And the delivery was really quick, I received it here in Holland in just one week (!)

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Plugs in and works - eg, use 'HelloWorld' example sketch under LiquidCrystal, but modify to use with constructor of 'LiquidCrystal lcd(8,9,4,5,6,7);' - as suggested previously. Works on 5V too (others are for 3.3v).Doesn't interfere with the spi pins, more on that later.

    Cons: Reset button is near the other buttons - easy to press if not careful.

    Other: Great value, easy to use.

  • A cheap LCD (and keyboard) shield

    posted by Taz8du29 on 06:59:37 G9T 28/09/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very good (when it works :P) product, you just have to go to arduino.cc to see the tutorial for liquidCrystal library but you have to get by for the keyborad (no library :/). To connect it, just like the other said, do : liquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7) without forgetting to include the library : #include <liquidCrystal.h>

    Cons: I don' know why but at the begining, it won't work ... I can't see anything on it and suddenly it work !?! I won't understand because now it's ok. Don't look for a library, there aren't any up to date :/ for my own the backlight is too dark. just turn the potentiometer left and right and stop when white squares appears.

    Other: good product

  • LCD Keypad Shield for Arduino

    posted by pushtunas1 on 11:10:52 G9T 23/09/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: The display works great. It is easy to set up, just use [Arduino: LiquidCrystal lcd(8,9,4,5,6,7)]. It is simple to find appropriate code examples for this LCD shield. It can be directly plug onto the Arudino board, no soldering or fly-wiring needed. Very inexpensive! Very bright! Works as advertised.

    Cons: The blue box to adjust the brightness is a bit to high so you will have a problem when you put it in an case.

    Other: A great device and, at a great price. I would recommend this to anyone looking to build a DIY project.

    posted by HellDragonQc on 13:58:02 G8T 21/08/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: -VERY bright 16x2 lcd -Works beautifully on my arduino, perfect fit, love the shield -Has a reset button so you don't have to reach under the shield everytime you want to reset -The buttons are all good to use.

    Cons: No cons at all, other than having to turn the pin to adjust contrast at first, because it's turned all the way to the left.

    Other: Amazing deal, you won't find better elsewhere. If you want a cheap good lcd for your arduino, this is it. And bonus points for the buttons on it.

  • Very cheap and functional Arduino LCD shield

    posted by Tarjeik on 11:27:55 G8T 01/08/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very cheap and functional LCD shield. Worked perfectly out of the box. Example code ran fine as long as the correct pin configuration is used just as several others have documented in their reviews.

    Cons: It took some digging through earlier reviews to figure out the pin configuration. The biggest drawback is the blue pot for adjusting the contrast. It's taller than the display itself, making mounting inside a case very hard. Either desolder it and insert a smaller pot, or just find a contrast setting you like, measure the resistance and swap out the pot for a normal resistor of the correct value.

    Other: Very good display for the price with the exception of the blue pot if you're thinking of mounting this in a case.

  • LCD shield with buttons

    posted by OgreRO on 10:59:34 G7T 25/07/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Easy to configure and program based on examples directly from arduino. Have some buttons so that you can add some interactivity to your project.

    Cons: There are two cons I can see now. 1) if you plan to connect something else to the microcontroler, this shield do not allow you to do it as it do not have outputs. 2) is use 6 digital pins from your microcontroler instead of 1 SPI or I2C. This do not have shift register installed so will cut big portion from your outputs/inputs. Count with it.

    Other: Otherwise it is nice shield for basic projects. More complex projects will need another display with extra chip to convert comunication to SPI.

  • LCD Keypad Shield for Arduino Duemilanove &amp; LCD 1602

    posted by bertholdsson on 13:55:45 G6T 05/06/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Excellent display, clear and crisp. Extremly easy to connect and use with almost default setting from LiquidCrystal example in the arduino programming envionment. Use this and HelloWorld example till wirk right out of the box: LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7);'

    Cons: None so far, i have only had it for 10 minutes :-)

    Other: Well worth the money. There is other cheaper displays here with the same specifications but the price for this is still low and works like a charm!

  • Fairly decent for the money

    posted by MattC88 on 04:04:49 G5T 22/05/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Works with the UNO board without much effort, nice bright screen with adjustable pot on the top of the board. Also has soldering contacts on the top of the board which are marked for easy modding and building into a housing unit.

    Cons: While it works with the UNO the pins used in the example sketches are different than the pins used on this board so you have to change the code each time you use an example sketch. The pot was turned quite low on mine so I had to play around with that quite a lot (make sure you have a small flat head screwdriver to hand). Also on delivery the pins were slightly bent so fitting it was a bit annoying at first but it works just fine.

    Other: Good price for a cheap LCD shield that works with the Arduino UNO right away and the build quality isn't too bad. Perfect compliment to any beginner's Arduino kit.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It´s a fun human-machine interface to arduino, kind of retro.. I can say that its pros are: It actually works with the Mega 2560. It´s educative. Display is brilliant.

    Cons: Not plug and play, had to invest some time, actually 2 hours to get it working properly. Had to google for documentation and eventually got diagrams, sample code and how-tos. Of course this forum helped a lot, thank guys! Used an ohmeter to relate the pins (on the back of PCB) with their function.

    Other: If you plan to embed arduino and to have a simple interface to it, this shield can help a lot, but in fact having an android device communicating with it via bluetooth is way better.
