Good service and good lcd.
Great LCD, clear display and easy to use
Very Large display! Excited about applying this display. The data required to integrate the display is all available on the Sparkfun WEB site. Good Work Sparkfun.
I am going to go with this one again for my next big stompbox control unit. I need something that displays characters that are easy to read from six feet away… and this does that very well.
What it doesn’t do for me well, is refresh large characters quickly. It may be exacerbated by the only driver on the OBEX for the Propeller MCU being slow (or is it?). It seems to refresh small characters in less than a second… the large font takes twice as long.
If it just refreshed quickly, it would be amazing. As is, it is pretty good for displaying raw data that doesn’t change often. Any suggestions from other users would be welcome.
