                  The guy just e-mailed me back,
                  I gave him my address, and my EL backlight preference, and asked for a cable that would plug into the LCD and to the Parrallel port if they have one.
                  Do EL backlights come in different colors?

                    I am getting a free sample 4x40 EL backlit LCD, I told them it was for a highschool electronics class to display information from the computer, which is true!
                    Its displaying pc info and songtitles, and I am going to show it to the Electronics class at school when I finish

                        hehe..
                        you just have to come up with a good story.
                        I also ordered the free samples.. 2*788 and 2*787. I got 2*788 and 4*787. Guess I'm lucky

                        Just tell them you're a student or something.

                          Don't get too attached to those "Free" samples!

                          I just got an e-mail back from sales, who informed me that the terms of the samples require that you return them promptly and pay for shipping! Also he said he couldn't give me one yet (but would be happy to later) because the 'demo units' were on allocation.

                          Watch out for that datainternational hitman =)

                          ps: thanks for the info on the 787s... i think i'll get lucky, i ordered some surface mount components with them and used my university e-mail =)

                            jooky: well crap!
                            They never said anything like that!
                            I will send them an e-mail from an alternate e-mail box, and ask.

                              hey, maybe they just got wise =)

                              actually I told him I wanted a 40x4 to eval, and he told me they don't have any because there is "no demand" ?!

                              if you get the display in the mail, it will be a sign that you should keep it =)
