    Great packaging, as well as the assembly itself. The display is not suitable for quick updates, as it has a small memory effect, but can update locally once a second.

    Well packaged and pretty good delivery time (16 calendar days from order). I have been playing about recently with e-paper displays and have now come to some sort of conclusion about usefulness. First of all, the good stuff: The display is crisp and easy to read in daylight; It even keeps its display when power is off. Now the not so good stuff! Updating is slow and the screen flashes several times as the update happens. This is very distracting and rules out its use on many of my projects. I have ended up with the following use case. I keep the processor in "deep sleep" most of the time, with a wake-up and update overnight when the main screen update is carried out. I might also wake up every hour or so to check on sensors, etc, but I would only update the screen if there was a major status change. Having said all that, there are plenty of cases where a display update overnight is all I need and I love the fact that I can easily read the display in daylight. All in all, this is a useful device, just be aware of its limitations.

    Well packaged and acceptable time (20 calendar days from order). I just got this to play with e-paper displays. The best use case I have found so far is for projects that spend most of their time in deep sleep and update the display occasionally when the environment changes. The display can be easily read when in deep sleep (or indeed powered down) and this usage avoids the issue of the slow update rate and flashing the display when updating.

    Well packaged and reasonable delivery time (16 calendar days from order). I have been experimenting with e-paper displays recently, but I haven't yet made up my mind about usefulness. I like the low power consumption and daylight visibility, but don't really like the slow updates and flashing of the screen when updating. The best use case I can think of is for projects that spend most of their time in deep sleep, and wake up from time to time to check their environment and update the screen if something changes. That way the screen is always visible and shows the latest status, even when the MCU is in deep sleep.

    Whow - this boards exceeded my expectations by far! - Easy to install and program with Arduino and the original libraries from Lilygo Homepage (use GxGDEH0213B72.h driver) - SD card interface - which I didnt expect on this board - LiPo management chip, just connect a 1s lipo and charge it - ePaper is pretty fast and has good contrast Thats exactly what I looked for to display my solar and smarthomes power status with a simple "out-of-the-box" board. Board is the perfect present also for every DIY Arduino freak... So I immediately ordered 2 more...

    This is the third T5 I've bought and I'll probably buy more. It is unbelievable how versatile this gadget is. I even popped a fuse on one of them because I'm a bad engineer and it was very easy to bridge it with a blob of solder. The board worked perfectly after.

    Display work perfect. I bought the module because I program PDA computers with reading barcodes and so I can generate those codes directly (via web) on the display, I do not have to print on paper. The sample programs work. Only refresh the display is 5-8sec.

    Perfect little board! Over the past few months I've tested every pin and feature and it all works. The partial refresh is nice, but if you use it more than a dozen times in a row without a full refresh, it can burn in a ghost image on the screen.

    Fast Controller, sharp display, Lipo Battery Support included. All on 1 compact Board and with really good manufacturing quality. Arduino GUI can be used for programming - my recommendation!
