    Great product.

    Arrived on time and the quality is great. The backlight/contrast can be adjusted via commands which is nice. I bought this for a school project along other brands and this was the easiest to set up.

    Simple to use, great quality

    Posted by Leon R on Jun 21st 2022

    Used this display for a small project and everything was very smooth. Their support center is very helpful and customer service is great. I used with 8 bit communication with no issues. Make sure you read the datasheet as it explains most of the setup and pins needed. I have bought some other brands from Amazon but the quality of this display is superior.

    You can immediately see the quality compared to other displays. It feels heavier and well made. The backlight is very bright. The price is ok but quality is superb.
