    yup, the pico lcd, and many other lcd's would also work in that spot. the easiest way is to look at what the programs that control screens to see what they support: programs like: lcdstudio, lcdc, and lcdsmartie..

    i thought about mentioning it before, but you seemed pretty focused on the pico lcd..

    matrix orbital makes a couple of lcd displays that have rgb lighting-- so you can configure them for any color lighting you want..

    heezer7 has started working on a plugin for Open Mobile and has specifically used this character lcd, and has said that the programming is pretty easy. i also believe that all the programs i listed above will also allow you to program this screen.. there is a proof-of-concept video in the OM section showing his progress.

    i have looked at this screen as a different option, and while it looks really do-able, it is not as common/popular, so the programming might not be as easy-- but is supported by many of the programs i listed before.

    and the last screen-- the gx typhoon, i recommend to run away from it.. general support doesn't exist(they do not have any official win7 drivers-- just a work-around), and it requires their software--last updated back in 07... it appears that it 'might' be controllable with programs outside their software, but due to the lack of updated drivers, it isn't much a viable option..
