Would someone please be able to tell me if this GLCD that I purchased on Ebay is classified as a "Pinout B panel" in the ks0108 graphics LCD library tutorial at
http://playground.arduino.cc/Code/GLCDks0108
Thank you Pedro.

Yes there is a nice library for the KS0108   http://playground.arduino.cc/uploads/Code/GLCD_Documentation.pdf data sheet enclosed.

Sorry cowasaki, I knew I forgot something, here is the link

Hi Doc,
thanks for that. There are just so many different GLCD displays it's hard to know which one to buy.  I hope you are keeping well, Pedro

I don't buy anything but the Itead product, They work well on a mega and the library is great to use... in 65K colors. A KS0108 + 1 color...
AND I Would Never buy ANYTHING from Sure Electronics.. Again, They don't back up their products... I bought a dev board ffrom them and when it turned up defective... they asked me to return it... So "They Could Evaluate IT". I'm not about to spend another 5 -7 dollars to have them toss it... Mind you the request came after 5 sets of pictures of the device failing on the programmer (Pickit 2 and the last PIC I will EVER buy) Co-indecently the product was discontinued within a week of my last letter to them. I bought 2 of the 3208 panels and a display controller... From them and the software supplied was utter CRAP. Once opened it cannot be moved or re sized or minimized and we all know about how much data was ever published about those panels and their use. There is a nice lib for them but ... The parts should be usable as is. It should NEVER be necessary to write your own controller to replace a $30.00 PCB... It does have 2 nice 5V switchers on it though and the serial port connections are available... So I am going to pry the processor off with a screwdriver and use what's good on it. A USB to TTL serial port and 2, 2A 5V switchers...

Senseless Stupid Rant...
