The LCD has excellent vivid color contrast.
Spice up your Arduino project with a beautiful large touchscreen display shield with built in microSD card connection. This TFT display is big (2.4″ diagonal) bright (4 white-LED backlight) and colorful (18-bit 262,000 different shades)! 240×320 pixels with individual pixel control. It has way more resolution than a black and white 128×64 pixel display. As a bonus, this display has a resistive touchscreen attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen.

WARNING. The USB B-type port on the Arduino Uno R3 is taller then the headers on the board. As a result, many shields, including this one can contact the metal shielding of the USB port, causing damage. The simplest way to avoid this is to place a piece of electrical tape, or Kapton tape, on top of the USB port to insulate it.
As with all Arduino Shields, connecting to the Arduino is simply a matter of plugging the shield in. Take care to align the pins correctly, and ensure the bottom of the shield does not make contact with the Arduino USB port.
