The LCD screens I (and some other members) use, I purchased from here. They work great with the EZ-B and are fairly easy to set up once you get you head around how they work. Here is a picture of what I'm using...

Apparently Robot Electronics have moved their website around so the link in the first post doesn't work now. Here is the new one for the LCD screens...

On the LCD screens I am talking about, they are only alphanumeric displays, as in they only display letters and numbers, not pictures. I'm not sure about using an LCD TFT screen to an EZ-B which I think you are asking about. If this is for your OmniBot rebuild where you asked about servos, I use a tablet PC to display pictures and videos ect on my robot which may be an option for you to consider.
