Yes, but it is recommended to connect it with the help of this adapter shield:

NP, can I suggest buying this LCD, because it's the same thing but cost less:

http://www.sainsmart.com/sainsmart-3-2-tft-lcd-display-sainsmart-tft-lcd-adjustable-shield-for-arduino-2560-r3-1280-a082-plug.html

Or, if you didn't buy the arduino already, buy this pack:

http://www.sainsmart.com/sainsmart-mega2560-board-3-5-tft-lcd-module-display-shield-kit-for-atmel-atmega-avr-16au-atmega8u2.html

I bought the same pack on ebay for 35€ (~45$) smiley

More I/O pins, more memory. To use all the features of that LCD shield (touchscreen and SD card reader) you need an Arduino Mega smiley


If you buy a Arduino Uno, then you need this shield to connect the display:

http://dx.com/p/arduino-lcd-tft01-arduino-shield-v1-2-board-module-blue-140955?rt=1&p=2&m=2&r=3&k=1&t=1&s=145725&u=140955

But then you won't be able to use all the features of the LCD.

I recommend the Arduiono Mega so no problems smiley-cool

guix is absolutely correct on the board, shield, and mega. To further sweeten the deal... Order from amazon- sainsmart in your hands in a week. Order from dx-in about 7 days you will receive an email stating that your order has just shipped.
