Works great, easier to read

Reviewer: from California

Works OK in four bit mode. Is larger than the usual 16x2 with bigger letters.

Works with Raspberry Pi also

Reviewer: from Planet 10

A good unit, plugs right into breadboard with 0.1" pins. Python code to drive it can be found at: https://www.mbtechworks.com/projects/drive-an-lcd-16x2-display-with-raspberry-pi.html

NOTE: (so you don't blow up your first one like I did) :-(
The unit has two sets of two pins each where you apply 5 volts: pins 1 & 2 for logic and pins 15 & 16 for the backlight.
Pin 1 = GND and pin 2 = Vcc (5 volts)
BUT--
Pin 15 = 5 volts and pin 16 = GND

If you get it working but with gibberish, you've got the order of your 4-bit data lines mixed up. Otherwise it's all good. Enjoy.
