Mines up and running off of the onboard pins I inserted. However, I came across the one thing I especially hate about this LCD - viewing angles. I had it propped up on a box on the floor so that I would be looking at it perpendicularily. Thought it was a bit dark, changed some settings and it didnt look any better. Dad came in and I got up and I noticed how when you look at the LCD from above, it looks as it should. I dunno, will have to see how it looks once I mount it somewhere.
