Help me select - LCD - TFT - OLED

Hi,

for an alarm clock I want a display for time (well readable) and alarm icon, maybe temperature. Am I correct that only OLED displays have a dark black background? I don't want to light up the room with the display p: .
Then I can only find hundreds of 0.96 inch displays which is definitely too small. 1.8" might do it but still a bit small and I can't find it on ebay or other shops.
So should I go with a TFT then?
This is for an Uno btw.

Thanks!

Try www.newhavendisplays.com Lots of TFT & OLED displays. You'll have to ask about sending data to them.

Definitely not. You can use a graphics LCD and make the background black, or any other colour, and having individual characters 0.96" high, or more, should be quite easy as well.

Oh, that's great. Then I will look for a 2-3" LCD.
Thanks, guys.
