Description: This is a very large serial graphic LCD. The Serial Graphic LCD backpack is soldered to the 160x128 pixel “Huge” Graphic LCD and provides the user a simple serial interface to a full range of controls.
Besides writing text, this serial graphic LCD allows the user to draw lines, circles and boxes, set or reset individual pixels, erase specific blocks of the display, control the backlight and adjust the baud rate. There’s also a reverse mode that allows the screen to operate blue on white instead of white on blue. Additionally, all source code for the ATMega168 processor is compiled using the free WinAVR compiler and is free for downloading.
Dimensions: 4x5x0.65" (102x129x17mm)

This product has a bit of a troubled past. the Serial backpack had a pretty lousy code for quite a while causing plenty of errors during simple serial communication. this lasted for quite some time
Nowadays however the code has been vastly improved and it works pretty great. Great if you want to give your project a nice big easy to controll screen.
I’m quite sure I’m doing everything right here. Adjusted the contrast potentiometer to its min and max values, but event at the best calibration, pixels are too bright. Image only gets nice if you tilt the LCD 45 degrees - then you get a perfect blue background with white pixels.
