ADAFRUIT INDUSTRIES - 1109 - RGB POSITIVE 16X2 LCD + KEYPAD KIT, RASPBERRY PI 5 5 1 1
Nice product This is a great addition to the Raspberry Pi. I'm using some for a robotics team and we needed a simple user interface which would not required an external monitor & keyboard. Put it together in less than a half hour and had it up and working with demo code in another 15 minutes. The ability to change the color is great in a debug environment and the 5 buttons allow a control menu system to built up easily. May 10, 2013
