This graphical display looks great, costs less! The dark gray pixels are visible in daylight, and there's also a full RGB LED backlight, which you can control with PWM to make any color you can imagine. 

Four mounting holes and a blank 11 pin 2mm-pitch labeled breakout on the side - Adafruit just soldered some wire to each hole as shown in the photos, its very easy. (The LCDs have no wires soldered in when Adafruit ship them) 

Bonus! Adafruit is including a free 4050 level shifter chip so that you can safely use it with your favorite 5V microcontroller

Advantages!

  • Lower cost than KS0108 LCDs
  • Serial interface uses only 4 or 5 digital pins
  • Low power, full-color RGB LED backlight
  • Visible in daylight without backlight
  • Works perfectly with 3V logic

Challenges!...

  • 3.3v power and logic means a level converter is needed for 5V Arduinos (we include this part when purchasing from us)
  • Microcontroller must buffer display - uses 1Kb of RAM. This means you must upgrade to a ATmega328 if you are using an Arduino with a '8 or '168

For a more detailed tutorial, including how to wire up the display with a 4050, see Adafruit's writeup at http://www.ladyada.net/learn/lcd/st7565.html 

Adafruit has C code and an Arduino library ready to go (we suggest reading the above tutorial too!)
