This is the first bit of work I have done with the Arduino and touch screen. I fitted this screen with a Sainsmart shield to my mega2560 and downloaded the UTFT and UTOUCH libraries ([...]). It took me a little bit of time to figure out the correct initialisation parameters but once I got these sorted the screen was very easy to use. The settings for the Arduino Mega 2560 are : UTFT myGLCD(ITDB32S,38,39,40,41);
I have not had any luck setting up the sdcard on the board but this is probably down to my inexperience.

Once again, M&S got it to me very fast and it was very well packed (a bit over enthusiastic with the sticky tae, perhaps, but what's a scalpel for?).
I'd recommend finding the UTFT library (set the display type to ITDB32S), the adjustable shield and watch it work. It was fine with the Arduino Mega (once the adjustable shield was available), but with the same setup did not work with the Arduino Due, which looks like it was due to the 3.3V I/O nature of the ARM based Due. I'm in the mdst of using an old PATA disk cable and 40 pin header to make up and adapter for the Due (no need for the Adjustable shield then)

I ordered this lcd as i had tried a few spi interface lcd's and been dissaponted with the speed, this lcd is 16bit parralel and by comparison goes like greased lightning. It also has holes in the adaptor pcb so that it can be mounted sounds silly but actually important in diy gear.
im well pleased with it.
