While ordering some items on Banggood, I picked up a deal (I thought) on two touchscreens (2.8" and 2.4") with an included arduino uno clone (under $10).  I followed Bill's presentation on touchscreens and ran the examples.  All the examples worked, except neither screen accepted input.  The 2.4" screen displayed all the text in a mirror image.  These screens use an unidentified driver chip and I spent a day looking at various Youtube and arduino forums trying to get them working.  At the cost of these, not worth more time investment.  Will use the 2.8 as a display only!  If you buy a touchscreen, look for the ILI9341 driver chip as that seems to be preferred and should give less problems.
