Hi all,
Name is Jan and I am a newbie here. I've been trawling through the forums here, just reading and reading, and learning a ton of stuff. Thanks to all.

I ordered 6 off and tried one of with Maxim 7219, and I works very well.

Only thing is that these modules only have 7 digits. (In Arduino terms, either digit "7" or "0" is not available)

Anyway, here is the link for those interested:
