Did anyone else have to pay a ridiculous customs charge on this?

Thanks again for joining this drop! With your help we were able to make it successful for the community. We've just submitted the group's order with the vendor for the PiTFT- Assembled 2.8" TFT+Touchscreen and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where we'll break it up into individual orders and ship them directly to you! The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 8/21.
Rest assured that we we will provide you all with updated information regarding the status of your order throughout the process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 8/12.
If this came with a bezel I would buy it.
How many GPIO pins are left unused for other sensors etc?
Also for anyone worried about B 2 compatibility I definitely have this model working on a Pi B 2 using adafruits easy install instructions.
Great drop but at this point I'm holding out for the PiTFT Plus so it lines up with the mounting holes on my B+ / B2s properly.

got it today, awesome!

What kind of connectors/ cables did you need to get this working? Just got around to opening this and finding a use for it with my pi 2.

It was a direct connection to the board.

This one shipped earlier than the last drop for this screen. Too bad it's not the latest version of this screen from Adafruit. But for the price and having ready to use on delivery (no soldering ) I'm pleased
Great news! We have just received our order of the PiTFT- Assembled 2.8" TFT+Touchscreen earlier today at the warehouse.
The order arrived in a bulk shipment and our warehouse team will be ready to break it down into individual packages and send them out to you first thing tomorrow.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 7/17 or sooner.
Anyone gotten this to work on jessie yet?
Has anyone considered interfacing this with a BeagleBone black?
I received my PiTFT touchscreen on June 15! It's what I expected. It was packaged well! Thank you!

beacom does it work with pi2 bec I will be getting one but still thinking about compatibility
Ulsa
Per the product page description on adafruit "It's designed to fit nicely onto the Pi Model A or B but also works perfectly fine with the Pi 2 or Pi 1 Model B+ as long as you don't mind the PCB overhangs the USB ports by 5mm, see the photos above"
Follow the link on the description page for this drop.
btw my board has some scratches on its back.. but I can't test it till my pi2 arrives so do we have some kind of warranty ?
Ulsa
I have heard of some complications with this screen and the pi2. Hopefully it works out well!
Beacom
Let me know about pi 2. Cause I also plan to get one of these but I'm unsure.
Guys You should do a drop about http://www.sainsmart.com/7-inch-tft-lcd-monitor-for-raspberry-pi-touch-screen-driver-board-hdmi-vga-2av.html aswell
its nice and prob. will be nicer if we can get it down
Ulsa
Propose the drop!
So tempting!!! Whats with the 49 cents everywhere? Can you just make it $0.50? $31 shipped if it hits lowest price, not bad.

I received mine on June 15th! Very pleased!
Beacom
I am happy you are happy :)
Great news! The vendor let us know that the group's order is on its way to our warehouse as of earlier this week Based on the shipping schedule we were given, we are expecting the shipment to arrive by Friday (6/11).
The order will arrive in a bulk shipment and our warehouse team is ready to break it down into individual packages and send them out to you as soon as it arrives.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 6/16 .
ah so there is not a ,static, kinda adress .. you can change it everytime you ship an item btw if for example I can not get the item who/how do I contact ?
how do we check where it is or where will it come ? Does website gets our adress from ip ?
Ulsa
You've entered your shipping details at some point whilst registering or paying, that's where they will get your address from. Not sure how long it will take to ship.
There is an image out there you can put on an SD card and boot that will work for this on both the pi and pi2. You can find it here: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pitft-28-inch-resistive-touchscreen-display-raspberry-pi/easy-install
However keep in mind this image is a version of Raspbian based on Debian Wheezy, which is now OldStable. If you update your sources.list to point to jessie instead, it breaks compatiblity somewhere and the pitft stops working. So be aware that this only seems to work on an old version of the OS.
Does this work with Pi 2? isn't listed, but can't imagine why not. Also... seems dated compared to this: http://www.adafruit.com/products/2441
poodull
It works with Pi 2, although it won't line up exactly like it would with the Pi 1 (it'll be off by a few mm)
Apples and oranges. Your link is for the "Plus" version. Of course this will seem dated considering it's the older version. But if you need a smaller screen with a lower price point, this should do pretty well.
poodull
I haven't been able to get mine to work with my Pi2 yet, despite following Adafruit's video tutorial. Not sure if it's something I've missed, or the pitft itself.
Just fyi, this does not come with any cables.
I got mine in today! took 2 days shipping. Very excited to get to use this

how long does the shipping take
atomcollider
From the drop I participated in, the shipping out announcement went out 10 days following the drop completion (6 days). I received the package 3 days later.
mine arrived in the UK this morning ^_^
I received mine earlier today. How do I connect it and use it?
