The build quality on this board was just terrible. The rotary encoder was mounted 15 degrees askew. Pins were shorted together with solder slop. The connectors were installed backwards. The contrast adjustment does nothing. I was able to fix all these issues (and more), but it took me most of the afternoon and tools that most people don't have. To sell a product this messed up is totally dishonest.

The heater cartridges, while extremely cheap, take forever to heat. On average 23C to 190C in 12 minutes. Previous cartidge (also 12v 40w) took about 2 minutes to heat.Pro-CHEAP!-Cheap!-WorksCon-Long heat time-Large fluctuations in heat

This is really a nice display. The PINS on the smaller backpack board for the LED were bent, not just on one board, but both. Therefore, I think this is a deliberate feature.But you're going to get in trouble if you've used another LCD with your library before!I wouldn't cite this product for that fault. It has been mentioned in the library documentation but chances are that it can be easily missed.So, if you're like me, then you'll have to do some work before you can test this cool Blue LCD.Step 1: Shutdown Arduino Development IDE if open.Step 2: Look into your Arduino installation folder where the libraries are located. - This is usually C:Program Files (x86)Arduinolibraries on Windows 7 machines.Step 3: If you libraries folder contains another folder by name "LiquidCrystal", then you have to remove this folder from your Arduino libraries!Step 4: In my case, I have been working with another LCD that I got as part of my MAKE kit and therefore decided to back it up for later use- To Back up, simply Cut-Paste the library to another location on your computerStep 5: If not already done, then download the latest version of the "LiquidCrystal_V1.2.1.zip" file as directed in the other postsStep 6: Unzip this library to a temporary location on your desktopStep 7: You will find a folder called "LiquidCrystal" (yes, the very same name as before) - Copy this folder into your Arduino Library folderStep 8: Verifying your installation even before wiring up your LCD- (Re) Start the Arduino IDE - If you installation has succeeded, then you should be able to find the example files for this LCD and compile the one applicable to this LCD- Navigate to File -> Examples - > "LiquidCrystal" -> Click on "HelloWorld_i2c" to open the file in your IDE- Click the Compile Icon on your IDE toolbar to compile this example- If the installation has succeeded, this file will compile without issuesYou're now ready to use the LCD with your Arduino. The library documentation has a better example to get you started.

Screen: bright, high contrast, good size and works well. The actual screen itself was protected with a packaging anti-scratch label.Interface board: the important few pins on the interface board were bent at an odd angle, looks like some sort of packaging failure. The pins connecting the interface board and the LCD module were straight.ESD protection was sufficient as it arrived in a sealed anti-static bag.The chips on LCD module itself were potted with black resin, so it's either a real HD44780 IC or a knock-off, so it's impossible to find authoritative data sheets if the actual chips are completely obscured.The chip on the interface module is visiblePCF85741AG02111 10

I would echo the previous review on ease of you. The LCD was very easy to program and setup after going to http://arduino-info.wikispaces.com/LCD-Blue-I2C and downloading the library and sketch. That part gets a 5 out of 5.The problem was the pins. The pins on the LCD were very bent and almost unsalvageable but I was able to straighten the pins. The pins get a 2 out of 5.If the pins had been straight this would have been a 5 out of 5.Also for the display to be backlit the pins marked LED need to be jumpered. The jumper is in the bag make sure to check for it.
