I just bought and received the LED Keypad Shield.  There was absolutely NO documentation in the package.  The barcode label on the box  contains:

     X000Z17R8N (the barcode, I suppose)
     Kuman 1602 LCD Shl A2560 Nano DUE KY54
     New             MADE IN CHINA

I visited the website for documentation, but there was no KY54 in the selection menu.  The menu included
KY34\KY58\KY63 but no KY54.  I tried several of these options, including the KYs, but none of them were helpful for this particular product.

So, what is one to do now?  Any help you can offer would be appreciated.

This is my favorite LCD screen for Arduino so far. I have been testing numerous products for my school's upcoming robotics program. We are going to compete in FIRST competitions eventually, but right now we just need to get to a point where students can control devices through a controller programmed by a computer.

This LCD screen is excellent for building confidence with arduino. I work with special ed kids who give up quickly. This screen was easy enough to use that a student who normally struggles with perseverance. Within 5 minutes he was able to write school inappropriate words on the screen. You pick your battles of course but he was able to write his name and a borderline word using the library.

I have not had success with the libraries that are incorporated into the arduino compiler. That is not to say that they won't work, I just haven't had success with them. This is one library I worked of off and it was ok. Any lack of achieving my objectives for this device was due to operator issues and definitely not the hardware.

This was such a great addition to my students' electronics kits! As my middle school students explore their interest in electronics further, we are constantly seeking out new components and projects to try. Using a Kuman Ultrasonic Distance Sensor, a few of my students wanted to make "measuring devices". They created little measuring breadboards that tell them how far away they are from a target object. Initially they used individual lights as an indicator of distance, and then used the LCD Shield Module Display to create a measuring device that gave a numerical readout. It is so exciting to see my students taking such an interest in learning these skills! As of yet, I haven't had an opportunity to try my hand at the Kuman kits, but summer is coming, and I will start being a mad scientist then!

The Kuman products arrive in very good condition, well padded for protection. We have thus far not had any components that fail on us. Each time we have ordered parts, they arrive very quickly - which is great, because my students get excited about a new component, and can't wait for it to arrive!

Because this is new to my students, they often have a little bit of a struggle initially to figure out how to use / program the new component. I have finally bought a companion instruction and project book, but up until this point, they have been just researching projects online. This is definitely something that presents a good challenge, and really forces learners to stretch themselves, and try something new. My students have learned a lot about being methodical and tenacious. They tell me that working with these Kuman electronics is "loads of fun". I am also having fun watching their motivation to learn, and their excitement when they accomplish something new. I am so appreciative of the opportunity to include Kuman products in my classroom.
