  • 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!!!!

No public wish lists :(
