My experience with high density displays is not any better.  I have 5 of the small 0.92 inch
displays but have not been able to get any of them to work.  These are TWI or I2C interface
and my Arduino does not recognize any.  I have tried the example code, the TWI address search
code, and my own TWI interface code, all to no avail.    At present I seem to be limited to using
the old standard 1602 LCDs, 4-line 16 char LCDs, and using the ttl/USB interface to show Arduino
outputs on my PC. 

Given my non-success experience with the 0.92 inch screens I have been hesitant to invest in
larger wire-bus connected displays.  Your experience seems to say it is good that I have not
purchased larger displays.

I wonder who, if anybody, has had good luck with these type screens?  The wire.h library
seems straight-forward and easy to use, but it just does not work with displays I have tried.
I even used the example code without making any modifications and it still doesn't work.

I just received 3 of the MCUFriend 3.5" TFT displays purchased from "accecity2006" on eBay. One of the 3 worked correctly; one was cracked and another one was not displaying text correctly.
