its a good screen, if you're wondering what makes it cheap; the main thing I noticed was I couldn't totally eliminate the background squares by adjusting the contrast as I could with some more expensive units.
This is a basic 16 character by 2 line display with a snazzy black background with white characters. Utilizes the extremely common HD44780 parallel interface chipset (datasheet). Interface code is freely available. You will need ~11 general I/O pins to interface to this LCD screen. Includes white LED backlight.
Dimensions: 3.15" x 1.425"
All prices are in GBP
