I want a low cost display for DUE or Mega2560 to show text and maybe some images, too. Years ago I bought a good one from Ebay, with library from Bodmer, but it was then. Adafruit perhaps but Ebay has good prices. The size matter here, the bigger the better.
I cannot make a product recommendation on this forum.
I bought one of these TFT and MEGA sets about 5 years ago. My first TFT for Arduino, as far as I remember.
I used it with Bodmer's TFT_HX8357.
I may have bought it from Banggood.com or DX.com, but I don't have a link at hand.
I see examples on AliExpress, e.g. Free shipping! 3.5 inch TFT LCD screen module Ultra HD 320X480 for Arduino + MEGA 2560 R3 Board with usb cable.
Note that this is not a recommendation, just an example. I don't know the shop.
Depends on how you want to wire it up and mount it in some regards.
But I will second Aliexpress, Bangood as fair sources at good prices albiet slower shipping right now (covid).
If in a rush then Amazon also has a good selection.
" I see examples on AliExpress, e.g. Free shipping! 3.5 inch TFT LCD screen module Ultra HD 320X480 for Arduino + MEGA 2560 R3 Board with usb cable." This looks interesting. I think there are libraries for ILI9486 chip. And I might find a use for an extra Mega2560.
What about Due, anything for 3.3V. Besides I like Ebay.
You asked a rather "closed" question. Maybe that's why you had to wait quite long for an answer.
I used this TFT also on Arduino Due. Different library, slower because of bit shuffling for pins.
you can buy the display separately. Buying the set should make sure it matches.
with Arduino Due, or any other 3.3V processor, you have many more options.
I have no experience with Ebay; I don't know how to identify trustworthy shops on Ebay.
I hope for you that you get more answers from real TFT experts, albeit your question.
