  • The arLCD is a nice package but there are a couple of things to be aware of. First, it takes a great deal of pressure before a touch is detected. Even then, touches are often not detected at all. This can be seen using the demo programs that can be downloaded for the device. It is as though the touch sensitivity is set too high. As far as I can tell, there is no way to change this.

    The other issue is that drawing speed is quite slow. Don’t expect “instant” screen updates.

    On the positive side, the module is extremely easy to use and program.

No public wish lists :(
