It must have been at least a year since I bought my Adafruit PiTFT. At that time I was reasonably new to the scene but couldn’t resist buying what looked like a micro flat-screen TV for my Raspberry Pi.
What followed was a lot of disappointment. Being a Raspberry Pi novice, I assumed this little GPIO-connected display would be ‘plug n’ play’ just like any other HDMI monitor. It’s not quite that simple…as many will know. I found the screen difficult to use and couldn’t see any real usage for it – so it went to the back of the cupboard.
