Update to my last comment on the brightness, I discussed this issue with sparkfun, the problem is the resistors used are limiting the current and keeping the displays dim. They do not seem to believe this is a design flaw, but seeing(or not) how this is a display its only function is to be seen.
They suggested soldering around the resistors, which with SMD can be quite a pain. I found another method using the conductive paint that sparkfun sells you can put a little dab on each resistor and when it dries you will see the display at least double in brightness.
Not impressed, these are so dim that they can only be displayed in dark areas. i have used many of thier older ones (red not green, i ordered green by mistake), even after cranking the brightness up they are not bright at all!!!!
