    you an get a crystalfonz or matrix orbital serial lcd - it is much more expensive but requires no soldering. Also, there are several people here who have sold pre-wired LCDs in the past.

      Theres also a new crystalfontz model that has a usb plug on it, so its very easy to setup, but i would expect it to cost far more then a parallel, and a bit more then a serial model.

            Nope, they actually have one that is designed to be USB. Aperrently it's pretty slick.
